Examining the edge, peripheries in the mind and in the city Exhibition

25.6. – 30.8.2018
Opening: 24.6., from 6 pm

Students from the class Experimental Film and Media Art, University of the Arts Berlin, will be living and creating on the edge, both in thoughts and the periphery. The exhibition will conclude with a film and performance evening event.

‘Living on the edge’: when we think of spaces we tend to think of the space within. We leave the edges — the peripheries — where instability festers and sprawls out, for the rebellious or the adventurous. In cities, living at the periphery signifies both being an insider or city-dweller, but also being an outsider; not fitting inside for economic, social, or other reasons, and therefore resigned to the edge or the opposite — explicitly chosen to live there. Suburbia, or the Suburban Sublime. For the mind, the edge represents the grey matter — the cortex — where the higher mental processing takes place. This mental space is susceptible to being molded dynamically by inner thoughts and external stimuli. To think about the peripheries, both in the tangible and intangible, is to explore the intersection between mind and space. Students from the class of Prof Nina Fischer, Experimental Film and Media Art, University of the Arts Berlin, will be living and creating on the edge, both in thoughts and the periphery. The exhibition will conclude with a film and performance evening event: at June 28, from 6-9 pm: „Habitability Salon“.

Habitability Salon – How to inhabit peripheral spaces Live performances, artist talks and film program

Date: 28.06. 2018, 6-9 pm
Place: Schloss Biesdorf

How do you become aware of your surroundings? How do you become aware of the space you inhabit? During the week-long exploration of habitability, we investigated our awareness of space. This took us through an examination of space as a landscape of performance – of becoming aware as we move or as others move, as the earth moves. We questioned how spaces transform into habitable spaces, into periphery spaces, into disappeared spaces. We have transversed the dynamic relationship between mind and space. How our active perceptual engagement plays a role in transforming the spaces we inhabit and transforming ourselves. Come join the space of exploration at the Habitability Salon.

Students from the class of Prof Nina Fischer, Experimental Film and Media Art, University of the Arts Berlin, will present their experiences of living on the edge through a series of live performances, artist talks, and films. Addressing future forms of habitability in the virtual as well as in the real world.
