The ZK/U ZK/U seeks to develop projects, co-produce knowledge and share values created through exchanges. ZK/U does not offer a fixed set of ideas and principles for its fellows. Rather, individual projects and needs shape what could be described as a continuous formation. Instead of letting the ‘final product’ constrain the possible routes that a practice might take, ZK/U focuses on the processes that come from, and feed into, the particular contexts of the fellows’ practice, whether they be locally-defined situations or international discourses. THE ORGANIZATION BEHIND ZK/U: KUNSTREPUBLIK The ZK/U concept and practice were initiated by the artist collective and non-profit organization KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V.. The association managed to become the owner of the former railway depot and holds a 40 year lease on the ground. KUNSTrePUBLIK‘s concepts and projects are equally focused on local involvement and global exchange. Coming from non-institutional backgrounds, the founders aspire to continue exploring ways of collaborating, researching and creating, that go beyond the lines of existing structures and preconceptions. As part of their artistic practice, KUNSTrePUBLIK considers the development of ZK/U a long-term process that will evolve through the contributions and critical feedback expressed by its participants, partners and a diverse audience. KUNSTrePUBLIK is […]

The Curatorial Collective for Public Art (CCPA) develops curatorial formats for the production, mediation and representation of art in public space, public art and urban interventions. As an agency for site-specific, transdisciplinary, critical and transitory public art, it approaches curatorial practice as a collective endeavor on the intersection of concept, organization and design. Through long-term collaborations and in reciprocal processes with artists, CCPA experiments with innovative curatorial frameworks for artworks in public space – be it a festival for urban interventions, an artistic funfair or an exhibition of ephemeral public art. CCPA was established in 2020 and consists of Yael Sherill, Lianne Mol, Julia Kawka and José Délano. The collective combines the members’ collective interests and expertise in curatorial practice, exhibition and stage design, cultural mediation, research, dramaturgy and project management in the field of site-specific theater, transdisciplinary art in public space and socially engaged practices. CCPA is an independent, nomadic collective without a fixed space, working across a variety of localities and collaborating with institutional partners and project spaces.

We are a creative and political collective that has grown out of the solidarity and sister*hood – and the difficulties – we have experienced in the industry. We want to destigmatise stripping and sex work as a whole, to start a dialogue about sex work in which people can learn about our work and lives, and, last but not least, to share the art of stripping. The sex industry presents many problems. Our collective want to provide a space where strippers’ voices can be heard and where we can share our love for sensual movement without being at the mercy of strip club rules and discrimination. We are advocates of the decriminalization of sex work globally. We condemn gender and racial discrimination in the sex industry. We want to challenge oppressive structures. We, the BSC, bring you original performance, pole skills, and sheer sexuality on a silver platter, with a political edge. Forget everything you thought you knew about strippers.

BERLIN-WEEEKLY was founded in June 2010 as an art project space by Stefanie Seidl. The 4,5, meter high room is a double-glazed former gateway for horse-drawn carriages in the historic Jewish Scheunenviertel in Berlin Mitte. The showcase space, which is illuminated until late at night, can be regarded as a kind of public stage on which the artists can stage an installation, representative of their work. The potential of the public showcase is to reach a wide, diverse audience. As a result of its one-sided orientation to the street BERLIN-WEEEKLY thus functions as an artistic intervention in public space. The exhibitions do not change weekly (as the name suggests and was initially planned), but every month. Though the installations are clearly visible from the outside until late at night, the room itself is always closed except for the regular openings and for special events and presentations. The interested viewer can get more information on the website with photos and brief informations about the respective installations and a direct link to the artist’s webpage. BERLIN WEEKLY is aimed primarily at artists who work predominantly sculptural and spatial. The artists have complete freedom regarding the concept, content and realization of their installation, […]
