Odele E. Zhang Exhibition: Mysterious animal(s) coming to Berlin

30th July at 18:00 @ GlogauAir

Odele E. Zhang

Odele is an international artist drawn to place animals where they shouldn’t roam free; and is always curious in having the audience interpret. Often, interpretations of the image reflect their own psyche and isms.

After the Penguins diving off cliffs in Boston, cow hide caressing Fat Horse in Cleveland, then Wild Boar stomping down a city street alley or was it a bookshelf @RockBund Shanghai show and the Blue Surgeonfish chilling in a Church or was it an arcade @hollywood road Hong Kong show, which animals are going to appear with Odele in BERLIN?!

Come Wednesday July 30th at 6pm (goes on to 10pm) @GlogauAiR to uncover the Mystery and make your mark with your worldly "CONCEPTUAL" Interpretations, or F**K conceptual SH*T, and say what you REALLY FEEL.

Don’t miss out on the fun: (Details and RSVP at:


The Color of Innocence

4th to 8th of August 2014. From 12:00h to 18:00h at GlogauAIR


The workshop consists of:

Movie Projection: The Color of Innocence by Empara Rosselló.
Live performance by Empara Rosselló.
Workshop: SMER - Systems of movement and interpretation by Empara Rosselló.
(All participants will also have the chance to take part in the next Empara Roselló's film Bizarre).

The Color of Innocence

Empara Rosselló defines her fiction documentary film as "Upground cinema".

Continuing with her career, that also reflects on exchanges between cultures, The Color of Innocence is a vital proposal that shows the cultural exchanges between two cities : Koudougou ( Burkina Faso , Africa ) and Barcelona.

Barcelona is shown as a European and Mediterranean example, full of cultural wealth, talented artists, full of enigmas but also shortcomings.
After going over Barcelona, we move to sub-Saharan Africa with its landscapes and its people, full of color, rhythm and talent but also, with many imperfections.

Mirroring ourselves in them is used in her documentary as an strategy to share our cultural, economic and social riches, in order to create a better world where everybody could learnt how to not make the same old mistakes.

With the collaboration of José María Nunes, Xavier Padullés Ricard Salvat, Semolina Tomic, Quim Solé, Albert Vidal and others.

About the instructor: Empara Rosselló (Barcelona) is and intermedia artist, performer, dancer, actress and producer, focused on theatrical language which uses in teaching as well as in her own artistic creation. More about her at her web and vimeo (profile) // vimeo (Workshop Video)

She creates associations of ideas and surreal paradoxes to contrast them with a quiet meditation. Others characteristics that define Empara's work are post- conceptualism and post- feminism understood as humanism from the point of view of the daily life of women in all its contradictions and virtues with a great sense of irony. As well as in her performances and films, she gets to break the intangible poetic force of primitive shamans. A telluric force that invokes our unconscious trapped in neoliberal society.

Xavier Padullés. Doctor in Philosopy and Professor of the Institute of the Theatre of Barcelona.

Price: 70 €.

Case Sparse

A window on the Case Sparse Residence is opened at GlogauAIR, Berlin.

Case Sparse / Tra l’Etere e la Terra is a project asking the artists in their residence to face with the Malonno Region (Brescia, Italy), by producing site-specific artworks all along selected public paths; within three years this artworks will be part of the main core of an art-nature park.

The artists are asked to send periodically by web the evidence of their creative process to a urban art space. Here, every day but in random times, a window (a video Skype Call) will be opened on GlogauAIR's showcase where all the process will be shown.

Ackerstrasse, 18 / Berlin Mitte


DOUBLES is a bimonthly experiment in which current residents of the Institut für Alles Mögliche are getting paired off with residents from GlogauAIR. Starting out with a first get-together-brunch in Kreuzberg all artists are welcome to get to know each other and partner up in teams of two artists per team. After working independently over the course of one month, exchanging ideas and working out a collective presentation the two teams get to share the last weekend of the month at the Abteilung für Alles Andere in Berlin-Mitte for a two-day-showcase

Premio Combat 2014: Andrea Grotto

This year the two months artist-in-residence program at Berlin’s Glogauair offered by PREMIO COMBAT PRIZE of Livorno (Italy) went to the under 35 painter Andrea Grotto, who won this special prize with his artwork "Esci fuori!". The jurors explained that like a book in which all the characters have been omitted, the artist tries to gain a story, describing only the auxiliar elements and its symbols. The pictorial narrative genesis, already structured, needs new stories and life-giving experiences, that only a metropolis like Berlin can guarantee.

Andrea Grotto was born in Schio (Italy) in 1989. In 2012 he graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Venice, city where he still lives and works. During 2013 he was involved in group exhibitions at Fondazione Bevilacqua la Masa of Venice.
