We are pleased to invite you to a group exhi­bi­tion Nav­i­gat­ing Berlin. Per­spec­tives on Car­tog­ra­phy pre­sent­ed by CLB Berlin.


The 3‑part exhi­bi­tion series, curat­ed by Lisa Gor­don at CLB Berlin, exam­ines the city through its car­to­graph­ic rep­re­sen­ta­tion, focus­ing on the maps’ his­tor­i­cal nar­ra­tives, aes­thet­ic depic­tions and the socio-polit­i­cal dimen­sions they illus­trate or even influ­ence. On show will be a nev­er before pub­licly shown pri­vate col­lec­tion of his­tor­i­cal maps and plans of the city Berlin, which reach from the 18th cen­tu­ry to the present. In each chap­ter of this tril­o­gy, the focus lays on a dif­fer­ent aspect of the car­to­graph­ic pre­sen­ta­tion, so that the view of Berlin changes again and again. In addi­tion, con­tem­po­rary artists present new works, with which they pick up on indi­vid­ual top­ics of the exhi­bi­tion and cre­ate a present-day dia­logue with the archive.


The series will start with Snap­shots & Tran­si­tions pre­sent­ing works by Olaf Küh­ne­mann and the artist col­lec­tive DISSS by Daisuke Ishi­da, fac­ul­ty mem­ber at SoundS, fea­tur­ing works by stu­dents Jonathan Bruns, Nico Dale­man, Yun-Chu Liang, Oskar J. May­böck, Enric Myskovskaya, Samuel Perea-Díaz and Fran­cis Sosta.
