Through the error, mistake, and the mistranslation, language is constructed and conversely re-constructs the generating context of the relationship between communicating subjects.

Wilhelm Klotzek

Curated by
Ulrike Gerhardt

The solo exhibition by sculptor and author Wilhelm Klotzek (*1980) »Und die Uhrzeit läuft einfach immer weiter« at NOTE ON is based on his intermedial concept of a »visual poem«. As he reconsiders the term »social sculpture«, he reprocesses the aftermath of the GDR and the german division.

Landscapes

News about the Apocalypse #8

November 17 – December 21, 2012

Mitya Churikov, Hannah Gieseler, Adrien Missika, Yvonne Roeb, Marcus Steinweg

Curated by
Imke Kannegießer

In the final »News about the Apocalypse #8« exhibition, the utopian and dystopian worldviews will be investigated according to the aesthetically mediated subject of landscape. Escapes from this world get staged with the help of abstraction, exaggeration, alienation and the discursive transfer of concepts of reality as paradisaic longings, dystopian scenarios or mythological apocalyptic worlds. Within the exhibition, ideas of landscape as a foil for colonial appropriation, as an original state to overcome and as a touristic postcard motive whose cut outs represent an atmospheric space; a part of something whole.

Ready for Fatality?

What type of object is an apocalypse? What are its features, its conditions, its potentials? »(You listening to) youtube.com/watch?v=QSza93W6n1M« approaches the apocalypse not as a terrifying event of final revelation to be escaped, survived or denied, but as an object to be understood, even as it attempts to erase all understanding.

Hated Animals

News about the Apocalypse #5

August 11 – August 25, 2012

Hated Animals
Frida Klingberg, Alida Müschen

Curated by
Ulrike Gerhardt, Susanne Husse, Friederike Hamann

»The Great cormorant is disliked since it eats fish, and its excrement destroys the vegetation of the colonies. The wolf was close to extinction in Sweden but came back and is now protected by national and international laws, but for some people living in its territories their presence causes problems. The Crab louse isn’t dangerous for humans yet a bit inconvenient, but still, even if it is threatened in Sweden, no one seems to care for parasites.« Frida Klingberg, 2012

Individual mythology as criterion of falsifiability – A laughing matter?

News about the Apocalypse #4

June 29 – July 15, 2012

Individual mythology as criterion of falsifiability – A laughing matter?
Thomas Baldischwyler

Curated by
Stephanie Seidel

The one and only apocalypse – it doesn’t exist after all. But still: small worlds, subcultures, constantly vanish, are forgotten, then dug up again, sampled and featured. Individual mythologies of fans, of people who used to be young, artist legends, legendary artists. And memories of experiences- rarely matching actual events.

Is there anything we can do for now?

Friederike Hamann, Christina Kral, Malte Urbschat

Curated by

The third exhibition of the series »News about the Apocalypse« revolves around the question: What can be done in the face of inevitable events causing grave consequences for humankind? Three invited artists Friederike Hamann, Christina Kral and Malte Urbschat take the approaching end of the world as a fictitious starting point and take position on the question at hand.

With the end of the world approaching, the second exhibition of our »News about the Apocalypse 2012« series takes us to the grey areas of science. »The Hollow Earth Show« turns our common view of the world upside down. What if the earth is hollow, and our idea of the world simply fiction?

In his exhibition »NOTE ON the fifth wall« Daniel Müller-Friedrichsen refers to the parable »The Mirror Image« by the hasidic Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810). This parabel narrates about an artist who covers half of a room with reflective black pitch in order to mirror the other half

NOTE ON a solid soul

Friedemann Heckel
Friedemann Heckel

Curated by
Ulrike Gerhardt, Jens Mentrup

Although Friedemann Heckel’s postcard gives no more than a description: it is an old handwriting; neither the address is named, nor the author. The garden as a safe haven, a playground, a place for recreation, a »hortus conclusus«, or a »lieu de mémoire« has been a traditional subject in art, literature, medicine, and psychoanalysis for centuries.

NOTE ON Poise & Display

March 26 – April 17, 2011

NOTE ON Poise & Display
Richard Lockett

Curated by
Ulrike Gerhardt, Jens Mentrup

»NOTE ON Poise & Display« reflects on the quest for balance and appreciation in art as well as in human life. Most striking about Richard Lockett’s artwork is his attempt to reconstruct subjective experiences in a sculptural and spatial manner. Lockett’s materials are drawn out of his homely surrounding – found objects like a clock, a table leg, a pillow, coloured contact lenses or a hammer mingle with symbolic, natural and handmade elements. These allegorical arrangements form a fragile visual language connecting different times and spaces.
