Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin
Featured hosts & guests: Axel Daniel Reinert, Mindaugas Gapševičius, Elizabeth McTernan
Schillerpalais was founded in 2002 as an initiative of artists and residents of the “Schillerkiez Neighbourhood” affiliated with the arts. The aim of this “art and action space” is to promote arts and culture in Berlin-Neukölln. (Non)Regular exhibitions of art and cultural events are designed to facilitate access to art and particularly artistic processes in the neighborhood.
Axel Daniel Reinert, born 1957, associated with comparative literary studies and trained in culinary skills extemporises in curating arts for the unexpected.
Mindaugas Gapševičius is associated with transdisciplinary art practices fluctuating between net.art, installation and participatory events. He conceptualizes the flow of (digital) information and analyzes its inner logic and modes of application. While linking the virtual and the physical, he engages in social and futuristic themes.
Mindaugas Gapševičius is a Lithuanian artist based in Berlin, Weimar and Vilnius. www.triple-double-u.com
Traveling to remote landscapes and taking geological/astronomical events as found footage of the world, Elizabeth McTernan uses actions, installation, drawing, printmaking, sound, and storytelling to create narrative structures for the reconsideration of perception. She sets the curved horizon of landscape into tension with the square horizons of screens, speakers, documents, and images. This work is not performance, but rather non-vicarious gesture: something that has to be done to confirm the absurdity of being. Puns are implemented as necessary.
Elizabeth McTernan is an American artist based in Berlin. www.astheworldtilts.com
