The exhibition presents the history of House Buchthal in Berlin-Westend in pictures, plans, and archival documents. In its original form, the home built in 1922/23 was one of the few examples of Expressionist villa architecture in Berlin. 

Not only does this exhibition recount the fascinating story of this house and its complex architectural history. Additionally, it sheds light on its residents and their guests from various eras. With historical photos and plans, as well as images documenting the current renovation process, it poignantly demonstrates the exemplary handling of a significant monument, which in its original form was a fascinating icon of Expressionist architecture.

The world’s broadest question
(Or why we find ourselves at a parting of the ways)​

The question “why?” asks about cause, asks about the causative conditions of realities in the past. In response to a why question, one can immediately pose the next why question – as children do – until the chain of causality leading to the observed event is comprehensible, or one simply chooses to stop asking.

In Partnership with Momentum Berlin and Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.

THRESHOLDS is about a unique moment or timeframe, when borders are crossed, rules are broken. It is about certain situations, when changes happen and something new might come into the world. A theme, that fits to Szczecin - a city on the crossroads between Poland and Germany, finding its new identity.

Genesis is a monographic exhibition of an outstanding conceptualist Ryszard Waśko. It is the first such broad presentation of his art in Poland and abroad.

TRAFO Trafostacja Sztuki presents the international artist, visionary and curator. For the past three decades, he writes, together with his family, a new chapter in the history of art worldwide. His activities, focused around the creative process, testify that any artistic endeavour is an art in itself. He combines creative activity with that of an organizer, activist and curator. It was Waśko who initiated Konstrukcja w Procesie (Construction in Process), the biggest modern art exhibition in the post-war Poland. Held in 1981, the exhibition featured Sol LeWitt, Richard Serra and Richard Long, among others.

April 13 – May 18, 2013

Artist: Christian Jankowski
Curator: Constanze Kleiner

The starting point for the work on THE EYE OF DUBAI was an invitation Christian Jankowski had received from the BBC television network to participate in one of the episodes of the Collaboration Culture series. In this series creative individuals from different cultures get paired up to produce a new work of art.

Following the Collaboration Culture series idea, the BBC connected Jankowski to a Dubai-based curator Rami Farook. The BBC did not accept Jankowski’s initial idea to blindfold the entire BBC crew during their stay in Dubai. Regardless of that, Jankowski along with his own Berlin based film crew arrived in Dubai blindfolded. While acting as a guide to Jankowski and his team, Rami Farook became an emblematic figure of the entire process.
