Aiming to create a welcoming place for emerging international artists, GlogauAIR was founded in 2006 by the spanish artist Chema Alvarogonzález. At the heart of the experimental and innovative Berlin´s artistic scene, GlogauAIR stands today as privileged space for creative development.
This 23rd and 24th of March, GlogauAIR warmly invites the public in to discover freshly baked works by the latest 11 international artists in residence. Moreover, the Project Space on the ground floor will be hosting the exhibition Gemeinsam -Selforganized artists of the North curated by irreverent gallery Galleri Syster, based in Luleå, Sweeden. To shake up the opening night, we will be counting with the live DJ session by the valencian musician KOSTROK. To start off the second and last day of the event, the artists´talk “Be the artworld you want to take part in” will be exploring the relationship between individual and collective artwork.
During this Open Studios’ event visitors will be able to dive into the diversity of human subjectivity through Marcia Vaitsman´s videos, to follow Victor Artiga´s musing on how technology has been replacing our real memory and emotions and Rachel Goodwin’s reflection on how the consumerist cycle of useless objects has affected the perception of our needs.
Marko Ivic will be expanding on the topic of aesthetic phenomenon of light reflection while the sound artist Hwan Yun will be playing with sound with an amusing interactive installation. JAZOO Yang and Haku Sungho will also be presenting a visual sound piece in which they literally lend sound to the act of painting itself.
The painters and drawers Hannah Celli, Anastasiya Gutnik and Zachary Craig will be exhibiting their latest experiments with new materials, techniques and style, while the also painter Arthur Laidlaw carefully analyzes the ties between the history of a city and its inhabitants.

What do we need? In order to feel that we are moving, not standing still: to avoid becoming bogged down in internal or external issues, but instead to progress from one question to the next? To develop – as a person and as an artist?
We need each other; we need to discuss, reflect, obstruct, construct. We need dialogues and polylogues. We need co-participation. As individual artists we cooperate long-term with invited artists, creating mutual mentorship, broadening our artistic practice, our organising, our thoughts.
We embrace the collective practice, we find strength in each other and have so much more fun together.

"Be the artworld you want to take part in"
quote from The Guerilla Girls’ Guide to Behaving Badly.
How does one combine the individual art practice with the collective? When does one feed the other and when does it drain you? Is it really two separate practices or has it always been one and the same even when we don't see it ourselves? Can we make ourselves stronger by articulating the every day knowledge that accumulates through the doing, through the practice?
Exhibit in GlogauAIR’s project space!

Victor Artiga´s recent body of work explores the omnipresence of the digital screen and its phenomenological effect on the human body. His work often incorporates devices through which we experience images such as, digital screens, projector, in sculptural installations, which merge flatten spaces with three-dimensional space. Having a fluid relation between sculpture, screen and works on paper he proposes, that we currently experiment a degree of affect in the way we interpret the hectic circulation of images and are trying to come to term with its new iterations.
The two dimensional work is created through the use of hand made processes like collage, transfers, silkscreen and drawing. Victor intends to inspect the connection between the lexicon of image editing software and the human body.
Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie / Seminar Grit Schwerdtfeger

Opening 03.03.2018 19:00 - 22:00 Saturday 3rd March 2018

„Abends fliegen die Fische“ is the closing exhibiton of the 2017/2018 seminar of Grit Schwerdtfeger at the „Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie“ in Berlin. It features nine works that are characterized by different photographic approaches and techniques. The photographs shown are the result of a shared creative journey fuelled by the discussions and reflections of the seminar participants throughout the year. Most of the works revolve around the topic of „water“, either in an abstract or very concrete way, which was the starting point of the seminar.
The „Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie“ was founded in 2005 by Werner Mahler and Thomas Sandberg in Berlin, who are also founding members of the „Ostkreuz Agentur der Fotografen“. It is one of the most respected free schools of photography in Germany.
Und abends fliegen die Fische. Im Wasser ist ihr Leben, was machen sie in der Luft? Wieso verlassen sie es, wenn auch nur für kurze Zeit? Es sind solche Fragen und noch viel mehr, insbesondere auch der nach der Metapher für unser eigenes Leben, mit der sich die hier präsentierten Arbeiten auseinandersetzen. Wie Wasser fließen auch Beziehungen zu Menschen, zur Arbeit, zur Kunst. Wasser ist das, was um uns ist. Es ist das Heranwachsen und Vergehen – im Einklang, in Auseinandersetzung.
Die Ausstellung „Abends fliegen die Fische“ zeigt neun Arbeiten der Teilnehmenden des Seminars von Grit Schwerdtfeger an der Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in Berlin. Die Arbeiten sind von unterschiedlichen fotografischen Herangehensweisen und Techniken geprägt. Gleichzeitig sind sie Ergebnis gemeinsamen Arbeitens und Diskutierens, deren Ausgangspunkt die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Wasser war, in sehr unterschiedlicher Abstraktion.
Die Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie wurde 2005 von Werner Mahler und Thomas Sandberg in Berlin gegründet, die auch Gründungsmitglieder der Fotografenagentur Ostkreuz sind. Sie ist eine der angesehensten freien Schulen für Fotografie in Deutschland.

GlogauAIR Artists in Residence Program:
January 31st, 2018
Deadline for the residencies beginning in July and December 2018.
Attention: New Fees from May 2018!
@ GlogauAIR and Institut für Alles Mögliche
„Coffee Break“ is a collaboration between Institut für Alles Mögliche and GlogauAIR that aims to encourage the encounter of creatives resididing in both institutions. The project really is what is sounds like: by bringing artists around the table in an easy-going atmosphere, it enables networking and stimulates artistic discussion and might lead into future alliances and ongoing cooperation. Everything starts with a shared cup of coffee …
The Tertulias are held in Spanish
Please confirm your attendance on the facebook event
Departing from the Arendtian notion of “the common interest” (weltliche Bezug), that takes interest in the symbols, collective archetypes and temporary needs bounding us together as a society, the curator Paz Ponce will show us her collaborative project presented in the XIII Havana Biennale as well as her networking structure that puts together different actors and collectives that have chosen Berlin as their artistic axis. This networks or crossroads have generated diverse experimental artistic educational programs, workshops that integrate public history, philosophical and literary elements and curatorial projects with municipal and European programs as well as with independent artistic spaces.
Curator, educator and independent art historian born in 1985 in Cádiz. She lives and works in Berlin. In her practice she researches on identity formation mechanisms with a special focus on Berlin’s self-organized art scene. Among her many projects in the german capital she has generated an own pedagogical methodology named Philopoetics that incites a poetical sense of the daily to young people. She also collaborates with the Node Center for Cultural Studies, the Berlinerpool as chief conservator of the archive and with AFFECT - Agora’s Program for Collaborative Artistic Practices in Berlin supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Marcia Vaitman, 10 Delírios em 10 Sutra, Video HD, 10 minutes,India, 2017
18:30 @ GlogauAIR
The wanderers distance themselves from the familiarity of the oedipal territory (Guattari & Deleuze) that first colonized their psyche. By inhabiting new geographies, the body in transit mingles with the other and becomes itself the other: the foreigner, the strange, the unusual, and the curiosity.
Through this metamorphic experience, the migratory being is led to confront and consciously deconstruct its own practices and identity – the once relatively stable and settled identity and practices that used to overlap and work in perfect synchrony with the cultural identity and practices of their geographical place of origin. This process of new awareness of the self, works as an estrangement effect that sets the wanderer into a simultaneous and symbiotic whirl of endless multiple possibilities but also of inner drift and disorientation.
However this is as much a gain as it is a loss, for in need of deconstructing such fundamental structures of the self, the wonderer is led to the quest for a more creative, conscious, responsible and honest way of perceiving where one is and what one is. An exercise of re-educating one’s mind, in search of a renewed and subjectively more meaningful ways of seeing and connecting with life.
Marcia Vaitsman - The last 3 years Marcia has been writing and researching images of displacement, which resulted in a PhD thesis and several studio projects. Her interest lies in vast empty spaces, slow paces and reduced color pallets. Thematically her practice is rooted in displacement, migration, miscegenation and how the body-mind copes with disorientation. The interest in science, researching digital media and the observation of mass and social media are a part of the search for a “map” or method, as she tries to understand how people form their collectives and identities. These concepts and processes converge into single channel videos, installations and photographs.
Arthur Laidlaw - Arthur Laidlaw’s work emphasizes the hubris of ‘Western’ viewers looking onto canonized landscapes. The experience of drawing and photographing ancient architecture in the Middle East, months before the Arab Spring, has profoundly shaped the way he sees the world. Each of Laidlaw’s projects is preoccupied with viewer expectations; his complex renderings of a landscape through dozens of different material layers present a destabilizing image that asks us to question our assumptions of a place. These layers reflect the our own efforts to try and understand a new culture when travelling – followed by our attempts to try and recall the original experience, even as the memories of that place begin to fade and distort.
Marko´s artistic focus is set on interdisciplinary performances, and more recently, the exploration of the installation format and collaborations related to photography and sculpture, always connecting and re-connecting with sonic experiences. His research is motivated by approximations to exuberant aesthetics, human identity, the body, and metaphysical aspects of our existence. A connection to the piano and his interest in live electronics is constantly pushing him to find new sound dimensions involving the use of software and sensors, in an attempt to re-articulate his personal experience and explore the relationships between the instrument and my body.
