Statement:
Our identities are formed, not only by our experiences growing up – a specific time, or place – but also through the friendships, relationships and knowledge gathered throughout adult life. As we make new connections, alternative associations with people and their ideologies accumulate, generating the rich codes and values that constitute the communities we choose to be part of.
Effort brings together a group of distinct artistic participants from recently established and deep-rooted friendships and communities across several countries. Each comes with an individual perspective on how to meaningfully contribute to lived experience in a world full of irresponsible over-production. Many of the artists re-use and re-purpose mass-produced materials to reveal new ideas, or gather remnants from neglected objects or imagery that instill a revitalised purpose or energy. The work brings forth mystical, practical, humorous, cynical, or empathic urges; each assiduously articulated by the artist who sees potential where there is none. The lo-fi aesthetic and seemingly spontaneous production results from a need to express something directly, whilst making do with the resources at hand.

Whether intentionally or not, making art is an inherently defiant action that shakes the uncompromising reality of the 21st century cultural disposition. Situations are constantly revisited and weighed up to see how much longer a studio can be held on to, a full-time job can be avoided, or whether there are enough opportunities in a town/city/country to maintain a practice. There are always tough decisions to make. At the heart of this exhibition, the first project by GIFT SET, is a group of individuals forging a network of shared enthusiasms and attitudes towards communication, making work and collaboration that will continue to develop into the future.

Effort is doing something to retain the things that are important, work with and against constraints, and change the things we can’t live with any more.

GIFT SET is an independent artist-led collective dedicated to collaboration between artists, musicians, designers, and writers through exhibition-making, publishing, and other special projects. We work from England, Scotland and Ireland. Get in touch with us at giftsetprojects@gmail.com

An exhibition of artists who engage in sociopolitical commentary through their artwork.

Opening: 7:00PM, Saturday, March 19th, 2016
March 19th to April 10th, 2016

It has been said that artists fight with their minds rather than with knives, bullets, or bombs.

If there is one thing that artists who engage the sociopolitical quagmires of civic life are good at, it is stirring up argument and rousing people with passion, emotion, and enthusiasm. The artist is often recognized as a rabble-rouser: somebody who stirs up anger, or other strong feelings especially for sociopolitical causes.

For the first exhibition of our 2016 season (Kunstraum) Dada Post is planning a socio-politically themed exhibition titled Pow! #StandForSomething. The exhibition will examine the role of visual art practice in contemporary sociopolitical struggle. We are interested artwork that is aimed at critically investigating the field in which visual culture meets a cry for political representation, social emancipation and the expression of discontent. It looks at the visual language of dissent and the flow of esthetics between artwork and civic responsibility.

Pow! #StandForSomething, will be an exhibition bringing into the focus of public debate a diversity of sociopolitical passions emanating from within the “Liberal” opposition ideologies. The exhibition looks at the dynamics of public discourse, and the evolving content and rhetoric of sociopolitical protest.

“Justice & Other Cruelties”

Michaela Strumberger

Opening June 10th 2011 7:00 PM
June 11th to July 3rd 2011

In her exhibition “Justice & Other Cruelties” Michaela Strumberger creates a poetic cosmos – a large-scale aerial installation of sculptures, objects and paintings. The artist targets power structures as a central theme, asking for the good and the evil while engaged with the search for the absent.

This exhibition is organized by the Reinickendorf Cultural Office, as part of their series of solo exhibitions of young artists in Berlin, within the “Salon K – 2011 art and culture festival in Reinickendorf East, and in cooperation with the Kolonie Wedding organization.

Michaela Strumberger, born in Graz, Austria, studied at the Art Students League of New York and the New York Academy of Art, before she received a Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in the USA.

porn.exe

Emma Twiggy

In the vernacular of current mass-media culture you could say that the porn.exe event, which is the sonic experiments in program code by Emma Twiggy AKA Andrius Savickas is John Cage on Steroids. Or one could describe this groundbreaking event of conceptual noise making as John Cage in the digital age. However, both of these tributes would fall short of its true significance. The porn.exe event evolves out of a much broader context that includes the Futurist noise experiments, Dadaist ramblings, Surrealist visions, Music Concrete and the morphology of today’s global digital culture.

Art is sanctioned pornography. [Neoist slogan]

In keeping with the art world’s current preoccupation with the abject, one could understand the porn.exe event as a perversion, which is the practice of changing something correct into something abnormal. Program code is akin to pornography, because it has got the same few explicit facts: linear logic and no meaning. In the situation where this code is interpreted as sound and re-mixed, new force-fields of imagination are opened up.

Drawing influence from the intensification of psychological warfare and the popular resistance of D.I.Y. rave culture, Emma is amplifying the program code of some of the most common software applications. The cheap and amateur means of data production, distribution and consumption are amplified and corrupted.

Emma Twiggy is a member of DAMTP – Union of DAta Miners / Travailleurs Psychique

OPENING: SATURDAY OCTOBER 16th 19:00

Screaming Lobsters and Other Important Stories

Mari Rantanen and Leena-Maaretta Dixon

Stockholm based painter Mari Rantanen is presenting an exhibition titled: Screaming Lobsters and Other Important Stories, which will also include a wall text by Leena-Maaretta Dixon, a surrealistic poem-thriller which tells the story that the painting installation is partly based on. The installation deals with shared memory as Rantanen is visualizing a view parallel to that of Miss. Dixon’s poem, positioning the seemingly disparate art forms as comparable.
The painting installation is making memory visible while greeting a space in the gallery that holds the emotions as well as the visualized thoughts.
Formally Rantanen’s installation of paintings is comprised of a large wall painting and an installation of smaller paintings, arranged through out the gallery space, that build a narrative of their own through their abstract visual language.

Flowed

Guillaume Cailleau

Media artist Guillaume Cailleau will exhibit three site-specific film loop installations that utilize various types of projection and film viewing devices. Two Installations will be installed in our underground WW-II bunker, and a third will be installed in the freezer (video installation space).
The subject of Cailleau’s pieces is time and the flows of water, and the circles and spirals, and the slow and fast movement of bodies of water. “Just as the river where I step is not the same, and is, so I am as I am not” Heraclitus

Sculptors: Three Generations

Artists: Johannes Denda, Julius Dörner, David Evison, Karsten Konrad

Sculptors: Three Generations is an exhibition of four sculptors affiliated with the Unversität der Künste Berlin.

David Evison, the English sculptor has been Professor for sculpture at the Unversität der Künste Berlin since 1982. Karsten Konrad is among his former students who has made a name for himself through out Germany and internationally, and is now in the forefront of the Berlin sculpture scene.

Evison saw his role in Berlin as being one of teaching and furthering the sculpture scene here, by paying attention to the succeeding generations. Julius Dörner is the last of his students as he is prepared to retire on September 31st. Konrad will now take over Evison’s class as Gastprofessor at the UdK. Johannes Denda is Konrad‘s student.

This exhibition comes at an opportune time for Evison, as it marks his departure from teaching. Additionally, he is organizing a large exhibition of his ex-students who are among those who are actively making sculpture today. This will be at UdK Berlin from October 31 to January 7, 2011. At the same time he will have a solo exhibition his new work at the Galerie Wedding, titled ‘Evisonstatues’ from October 29 to January 6, 2011.


Salmon Run: A Sculpture Installation

Doug Rathbun

The Fish Returns to the former Köinig Fish Smoking Factory

September 26th to October 16th 2010

OPENING: September 26th 2010 7:00 PM

Dada Post welcomes Salmon Run, a sculpture installation by Artist in Residence:
Doug Rathbun from Paradise, California.

Dada Post is located in the former König Smoked Fish Factory (a more than one hundred year old business) in Berlin-Reinickendorf, which has been given a second life as an exhibition, performance, and studio spaces for artists.
In conceptualizing the redesign of the complex, both its history as a former smoked fish factory and the new demands of contemporary art were taken into consideration. The facility is easily recognized by its large smokestacks, which have been retained as a reference to the original commercial use of the site.
Rathbun’s sculptures embrace a similar respect for the past experiences of both places and things. In his use of found materials the artist creates something new from something old. The spirit of the former life in things triggers his imagination and allows him to see things with new possibilities.
On the surface, Rathbun’s fish sculpture installation exhibited at what used to be a smoked fish factory is easy to appreciate. The Salmon, which have returned to where they once came to market, are illuminated from within through perforated steel and copper skins. The internal light of Doug Rathbun’s school of metal fish pays homage to the life force of living creatures.


“Hinterland”

Curated by Sibylle Hofter

Artists: Valentina Curandi – Sibylle Hofter – Nathaniel Katz

A Site Specific Collaborative Project

Exhibition Extended to October 10th, 2010

Hinterland is a site specific-complex of works that reflects upon local production in relation to the forms of globalization imagined by past generations. The former König Smoked Fish Factory, is represented by a recreation of Mr. Erich König’s upstairs conference room, which is relocated to a factory area downstairs that have been recreated as an art gallery. “Hinterland” can be both the silence behind the front and an economic base for warfare (originally it is a military term). Presently, our location in the Berlin-Reinickendorf district is mistaken for a variant of the silence in a hinterland, much like the former socialist version of Brandenburg. In the artificial economies of the Cold War, the East Berlin factories represented economical hinterlands, by creating a socialist version of an egalitarian utopia. While in West Berlin, the economy was propped-up by West-German government, and the West in general. Within a special kind of West Berlin melancholy, fish smoking was a strong local tradition – of bourgeois utopia.

Sebastian Denz will be exhibiting large sized 3D portraits taken on his custom made 8 x 10 inch large-format-stereo-camera, designed by custom camera specialist Dr. Kurt Gilde. His subjects are the stars of the European skateboarding world, taken over a period of three years while traveling throughout Europe with members of the Carhartt skateboard team. The work deals simultaneously with the growing presence and evolution of virtual spaces, space in a phenomenological sense, and human beings (skaters) who create their own construction of reality within these spaces.

John Bowman

Insurgency

Ann Shostrom

John Bowman is a New York artist who has exhibited at galleries through out the world, as well as in prestigious venues including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Queens Museum, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, and other museums through out the United States and Europe. He is currently represented by the Winston Wachter Gallery in New York City, and is an Associate Professor of Art at the Pennsylvania State University.

The current exhibition of drawings at Dada Post, Smithereens, depicts the machinery and structures of modern progress shredded by partisan conflict and ancient passions. These drawings create an anarchic aesthetic, a zone of generative destruction, and indicate the hope for a future beyond contemporary polarities, suggesting the exploration of alternative sacred geometries.

Ann Shostrom’s current exhibition titled Insurgency is a group of sewn and dyed fabric pieces that combine the use of camouflage material along with household linens.

Shostrom is an artist and curator who has shown internationally at galleries and museums through out the United States and Europe. Her solo shows include Stephanie Theodore Gallery, New York, NY, Lindhart Foundation, Prague, CZ, Art Now, Goteborg, Sweden, and Rule Gallery, Denver, Colorado. She is currently in “By a Thread” at Elizabeth Harris Gallery and “Revolutionary Women” at Pavel Zoubok in New York. Her sewn and dyed constructions combine formalist abstraction, social content, and handmade craft.

In Insurgency, Shostrom uses camouflage material along with household linens that are dyed, bleached, printed, painted, embroidered, and sewn together. Her open-ended processes also employs wax resist methods, which include the melting by blowtorch, of slowly burning votive candles. These techniques combine to produce natural landscape forms that are echoed in the camouflage.
