Blockadia Tiefsee, Kunstverein Freiburg

20 Jan–5 Mar 2017

We are Blockadia*Tiefsee. We are a temporarily collective, a meandering group of artists and curators. We meet each other, collect, discuss and present materials, ideas, words, images, objects. The hub of our conversations is the engagement with all that surrounds us influenced by new technologies, economic and ecological powers and transformations. We ask for possibilities of self-organization, the voluntary disposition and independent accountability of frugality, solidarity and empathy – and practice the implementation in material, substance, object, space and installation. Every meeting causes new processes and methods to change our code of practice and creations. Some part of this was showcased in the project space Tiefsee (Deep Ocean) in Offenbach and is documented on our website.

The exhibition presents the works of Mia Bencun, Martin Dörr, Jaewon Kim, Johannes Lenzgeiger, Petra Metzner, Wagehe Raufi, Sarah Schweizer, Dennis Siering, Jakob Stoeger, Anna-Lisa Theisen, Linda Weiß, Lynn Weyrich. Zu den weiteren Mitgliedern des Kollektivs zählen Fred Besier, Nadja Büttner, Lea Klemisch, Magali Laurent, Ulrike Markus, Robert Schittko, Stefan Thürck, Moritz Urban. The project was initiated by Susanne M. Winterling and is accompagnied by Antonia Lotz.

The exhibition is supported by:
