The works have been collected from studios on both sides of the Atlantic. Due to the pandemic, not all artists are able to be present for the opening, yet their works offer us an artistic dialogue across borders. The paintings find a temporary home in the ruinous beauty of the Kunst- und Projekthaus Torstrasse 111. Located in the center of Berlin, the space evokes the time when the city offered itself as an artistic Freiraum.

TORSTRASSE 111

Announcement of our publication on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Kunst- und Projekthaus Torstraße 111 in 2020 by Lukas Verlag.

On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the Kunst- und Projekthaus Torstraße 111 in Berlin, the book illustrates how the participation of artists in the collective urban space enriches inner-city diversity, creating creative biotopes that guarantee a lively urban diversity. The documentary integration of the artist-run-space into the art historical context of the 1990s to 2020s also examines the development of artistic autonomy in Berlin. A photo and image documentation on the history of the house, interviews with participating artists* and an art historical location show how innovative approaches have been used to integrate various uses into a residential and art house.

Ingo Fröhlich founded Torstraße 111 in Berlin-Mitte in 2000. Since 2012 he has been managing the Kunst- und Projekthaus together with Ulrike Seyboth.

After a two-week working period in the Kunst- und Projekthaus Torstraße 111, the artist pluck (Netherlands) will be showing works created on site. During his stay, pluck collected hair from hairdressers in Berlin. From the natural material, which forms the artistic basis of this work through the transformation process from fire to ash, drawings and objects were created which will be shown in the exhibition rooms of Torstraße 111 from 14 to 16 September 2018.

At the same time, pluck and the artist Valérie Favre will perform live performances lasting several hours on Saturday and Sunday.

An exhibition with students of Prof. Valérie Favres class (UdK).
A catalog will be edited for the exhibition.: Ulrike Seyboth & Ingo Fröhlich

The new students of Prof. Valérie Favres class (UdK) present a new sensual-performative-event together. On the 300 m² exhibition area the students agree on an artistic discussion with the place and question of aesthetic differences as well as similarities of their own perception habits. The presented work revolves around ambivalences of urban romance and urban arches.
