La curaduría de la 11ª Bienal de Arte Contemporáneo de Berlín está a cargo de María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado y Agustín Pérez Rubio (vea las biografías). Como equipo intergeneracional con identificación femenina y sudamericana conciben esta edición de la Bienal de Berlín a partir de una serie de experiencias vividas que evolucionan como un proceso. Comienza con tres momentos secuenciales, exp. 1, exp. 2, y exp. 3 (experiencias), entre septiembre de 2019 y mayo de 2020, que intentan aprender de y construir relaciones sostenibles, no sólo con los artistas y proyectos participantes, sino también, y lo que es más importante, con la ciudad y la gente de Berlín. El programa incluye exposiciones, performances, residencias de artistas, conferencias, presentaciones y talleres. En el verano 2020, la Bienal de Berlín reunirá todas las experiencias en cuatro sedes.

Statement curatorial

“We began by asking how to celebrate the complicated beauty of life as the world burns around us. Baring ourselves through the stories that carry us, asking what can be, what is being mobilized today. For the epilogue, these lived experiences merge, cumulate, and fall out with one another; sometimes even leaving each other behind like abandoned buildings. This nearing moment is not only about old skeletons dear to us, but more importantly about listening to the songs of the living bodies that make up our cities. It is about grasping how these moving bodies inhabit and transform the places people call home—not the precarious shelters and walls built to defend the inadmissible present, but those exchanges and support structures of shared fragility that sustain people. How do we care for those worlds that separate us and at the same time bring us together, preparing us for new collisions, for turbulences yet to come? Up against the dismantling anxieties and crises brought on by fear and hate, the violence that surrounds us, that we are part of. Solidarities of vulnerabilities in struggle push forward multiple unrehearsed uprisings of beautiful rage.”

(María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, Agustín Pérez Rubio)

The 11th Berlin Biennale space at ExRotaprint—a tenant-run project initiated by artists, bringing together work, art, and community—has been a space for the 11th Berlin Biennale’s diverse experiences since September 2019.

ExRotaprint is a model for urban development that rules out financial profit through ownership and establishes a heterogeneous, open environment for all parts of the community. The former site of the Rotaprint AG printing press manufacturing plant with its buildings dating from the 1950s is located in Berlin’s Wedding neighborhood. In 2004 visual artists Daniela Brahm and Les Schliesser formulated a concept for on-site tenants to take over the property. The goal was to develop the location to serve a heterogeneous mix of uses for “Arbeit, Kunst, Soziales” [work, art, community] and to achieve affordable rent for all. Since 2007, the tenant-founded, non-profit ExRotaprint gGmbH has been dedicated to the restoration and development of the 10,000-square-meter property. Today, ExRotaprint hosts over one hundred social initiatives, businesses, and spaces for independent artists and others working in the creative sector.

In 1965, with the help of the former West Berlin Senate, the DAAD [German Academic Exchange Service] took over the “artists-in-residence program” initiated two years earlier by the Ford Foundation. Under the new title “Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD” [DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program], it became a renowned support program for international artists, writers, and musicians, and later also for filmmakers. In 1978, the daadgalerie opened as a new exhibition venue in former West Berlin. The location was intended to bring together the diverse activities of the artists’ program and offer international guests a platform within the West German cultural scene. Since 2017, the daadgalerie has been located at Oranienstraße 161 in Kreuzberg in “Haus Stiller.” The residential and commercial building was designed in 1910 by the Jewish-Hungarian architect Oskar Kaufmann. Interdisciplinary exhibitions and events by current and former guests of the program are shown on two floors. A dialogue with the local art scene and other institutions in the city is the primary focus.

In 1881, the Gropius Bau opened as a museum and school of decorative arts. In view of its eventful history and the variety of institutions that have been active here over the years, the Gropius Bau is organized as an open framework for addressing a broad variety of artistic practices and modes of thinking. Since Stephanie Rosenthal took over as director in 2018, the program has focused on opening up the institution as a location for artistic creation and exchange. The active collaboration with contemporary artists aims at revealing creative processes, presenting new perspectives, and reflecting the possibilities of the institution. A central reference point for the program is also the nuanced examination of the building’s geographical location, history, and present-day status, including questions of land, borders, trauma, care, and repair.

Since its inception in the early 1990s, KW Institute for Contemporary Art has devoted itself to the central questions of our times through the production, presentation, and dissemination of contemporary art. The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, which was launched soon after, emerged from a pressing desire for an extensive dialogue with the international discourse around contemporary art. In addition to other venues across the city, the Berlin Biennale has regularly used KW’s exhibition spaces since 1998. Numerous outstanding artists and internationally renowned curators have since realized important new works and exhibition projects there, establishing the two institutions located under the roof of KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V. as vibrant venues for progressive artistic practices, both within the Berlin art scene and internationally.

Tres experiencias procesuales

El espacio de la 11a Bienal de Berlín en ExRotaprint —un proyecto dirigido por inquilinos, iniciado por artistas, que combina trabajo, arte y comunidad— sirve como un espacio para que estas diversas experiencias se desplieguen, cada una incluyendo exposiciones, proyectos de artistas y talleres a largo plazo, activaciones de archivos artísticos y pedagógicos, performances, charlas, lecturas de poesía, residencias artísticas y otras intervenciones en el lugar.
