Conceptual Poster_Schomburg 01-50, 2017





EN

A two paged poster edition. Double paged. 50 officially sided by Ann Schomburg and 50 officially sided by Sascha Boldt. Beside these authorised fronts, both editions keep the collaborating artwork on the backside, clearly indicated that the other work looses its art status, as it is stepping back to be an irrelevant backside. It is indicated by a line crossing out the wrong piece and an edition sticker by the specific artist of the front side.

Groupshow: Die Bilder der anderen

Warum eigentlich sehen wir weltweit nur die 20 zentralen Kunstpositionen oder ihre Variationen durch fleißige Kunststudierende, Künstler und Künstlerinnen ... wo doch in den Schubladen, Wohnzimmern oder den verlassenen Schweineställen der Republik die spannenden Werke „der Anderen“ liegen, derer, die im Glücksspiel Kunst ausgeschieden oder schlicht übersehen worden sind: unbeachtete Meisterwerke, ignoriert und zum Verstauben verurteilt.
Versteckt sich nicht längst die Kunst mit Seele in den Werken der Autodidakten und Zurückgezogenen?
„Die Bilder der Anderen“ ist ein Anfang, ein erster Schritt in die Wahrheit der Authentizität oder in den Sumpf der Artikulationslosigkeit.

Talk: Games with Frontiers #Decad




Games with Frontiers
A two-day symposium organised by the artist Philip Kojo Metz
in English 

On 29 and 30 October, diverse perspectives surrounding Philip Kojo Metz’s project, The Mimicry Games, will be offered and its broader themes addressed by an interdisciplinary series of presenters including Ann Schomburg, Stefanie Sylla, Ismal Duá, Monika Kalinauskaitė, Sascha Boldt and Zeina Idris.

Taking football as the medium – within the context of the UEFA European Championship – The Mimicry Games approaches the history of European colonization of Africa by forming a visual and physical connection between the sport and this history. Shifting the location of the European Cup to its colonial counterpart on the African continent, the project places African football players in competition against each other, while uniformed in the national team jerseys of their former colonizers. As the 2016 European Cup was held in France, The Mimicry Games were carried out in Senegal, a former French colony, and were internationally and intercontinentally broadcasted and discussed in a series of public viewings and studio talks. Through this widely accessible game that establishes connections on an international scale, the work addresses notions of national identity, processes of cultural exchange, mimesis and the remnants of a colonial past.

Contributions on the first day of the symposium will consider the relationships and interactions between the African and European continents. On the second day, the presentations will expand the scope of the topic, examining possible parallels in other cultures and continents.

Groupshow: community based Decad, Berlin



Join us for the second production in Decad's new storefront.


'Community-Based' presents a series of long-term, socially-engaged projects realised by artists and other cultural workers, specifically located in Berlin. At the opening, the work of six collectives will be presented, and over the course of the following ten weeks, artists and works will progressively be added. A corresponding lecture programme will ensue. In keeping with the exhibition's title, this ongoing collection of materials will rely on community-based research in a move to supplement the already published and well-known works in this genre of community-based art production. At the end of the exhibition's run, all materials will be added to Decad's growing archive on the social place of art.

Immediately prior to the opening reception, the artist Mathilde ter Heijne will speak on her work in Decad's Hinterhaus lecture space. Ter Heijne is one of the primary six artists to be included in 'Community-Based'. Her artist talk will begin at 18:00. The reception is scheduled to run from 19:00 to 22:00

Talk: Ann Schomburg. @@@ You are Dynamite









This is our 5th late night installment of I AM DYNAMITE! - a show that brings the strongest voices of change and positive empowerment to the stage. This month we tackle 
VOTING - DOES YOUR VOTE MATTER? 
ARE WE A DEMOCRACY? What is happening around the world?

Our public speakerss will give you their raw, honest, funny and sometimes tragic art - for your entertainment! 

LINE UP:
Faye Goldsmith (GREAT BRITAIN) is an academic, food blogger and activist who has a focus on refugee and feminist issues. She's setting up a project to tackle sexual violence in Berlin. 

Richard Garbutt (GREAT BRITAIN) is a technologist, writer and comdian. He's currently trying to overturn Brexit one poem at a time and invent an ethical version of Facebook.

Fridey Mickel (USA) is a writer who has been fascinated with political ethics since the age of nine. At 20, she supported UN diplomats in setting up and running various NGOs and political campaigns. With her „Context is Half the Work“ column at the TAZ, she uses interviews with celebrities and other personalities to examine everyday ethics and the moral dance between personal intuition and status quo.

Ann Schomburg (GERMANY) is a Berlin-based artist whose origins started in parliamentary politics, but she decided to switch her career to fine arts, to formulate observations of society in an artistic expression using the real life experience. She uses her own person as an example of real life, where art and life are in a symbiotic relationship. The consistent comparison of the various reactions to the “reality performance” and her art are a relevant focus of research. Schomburg’s interest is to undermine ways using a very own system of logic to reinterpret settled systems.

Rachman Blake (USA) is a New York City storyteller, filmmaker, and world traveler. He's performed in five languages, 15 countries, and at comedy festivals all over the globe. Watch bite-sized behind the scenes films of Rachman's journey on Facebook or Instagram. Http://www.facebook.com/rachmanblakelive Http://Instagram.com/rachmanblake

Groupshow: The Butterflychronicals



With the Artists:

Minor Alexander, Sascha Boldt, Olivia Berckemeyer, Nathalie Grenzhaeuser, Michael Kunze, Kati Liebert, Ann Schomburg, Semra Sevin, Catrine Val

Poster (c) Hardi Brackmann

German:

Der Wunsch nach Individualität ist in einer von Medien dominierten Welt ein grundlegendes Ansinnen. Werte wie Akzeptanz und Toleranz gegenüber der Authentizität des Einzelnen werden einer Abbildungsrealität gegenübergestellt.
Was ist Individualität noch wert, wenn Abbilder Abbilder imitieren? Gibt es so etwas wie authentische Individualität und wo lässt sie sich finden?
In dieser Fragestellung wird ein Blick in die künstlerische Fotografie spannend: Zu sehen wie zeitgenössische KünstlerInnen Identitätssuche darstellen,  ironisieren, mit ihr spielen und den Betrachter in befremdliche Situationen führen.  
Die Galerie Z22 zeigt zehn künstlerische Positionen, die sich mit Selbst- und Fremddarstellung,  Außenwahrnehmung und den Möglichkeiten von privaten und naturgegebenen Schutzräumen beschäftigen. Die KünstlerInnen liefern unterschiedliche Sichtweisen auf medial entworfene Rollenbilder und setzen sich mit dem Thema des Privatraums, wie der des "Zuhauses" oder der Natur als Bühne oder Schutzraum auseinander.
Die ausgestellten Fotografien sind in einer poetischen Komposition arrangiert, die die BesucherInnen auf einen Spaziergang einlädt, die Enthüllung der "Butterfly Chronicles - From the Inside to the Outside" zu betrachten.





Connected to the Month of Photography Schomburg was invited with her work 'Northeim sculptures' a portrait of her hometown based on the storage hidden behind the citizen's gravestones.
