With our program for 2018, entitled A Radical City, A trans focuses with greater precision on radical forms of expression and appearance in social and spatial contexts. It is hoped that a return to the roots (Latin: radix), to the originary, to the experience of extremes, will contribute to an expansion of horizons and a transformation of existing orientations toward life.
Generally speaking, radicality can be seen as a catalyst for change. And a retrospective view of such transformations can make radicalism appear inevitable, even conservative.
In this series, the invited protagonists will reflect upon and redefine certain historical and utopian topics. Interrogated in the process in ways that go beyond individual disciplines, and through a variety of artistic approaches and working methods, will be a range of stereotypes, dogmas, and assumptions.
A trans strives to offer a platform to researchers into consciousness and for a multiplicity of approaches to the investigation of experimental tendencies that incorporate contemporary urban practices and identities.
The aim of A trans is therefore to foster the “radical” reorganization of existing beliefs and concepts leading toward artistic-architectural approaches that transcends individual disciplinary boundaries.
In the exhibition Right or Wrong Corner the artists Mareike Lee (*1979 Toronto, Canada) and Tomoyuki Ueno (*1982 in Kobe, Japan), both living and working in Berlin, meet at Kunstpunkt to sound out the moving through the world with artistic tools. Where are the points of meeting and intersection with freedom, where are the pathways going somewhere, the role of randomness and decisions, the (artistic) act in personal and political way.
