Drag Kings, Phantoms, Mirrors, Hands
(one hundred years of dis/appearances)

SixtyEight Art Institute in Copenhagen

/// November 24 2017 - January 27 2018 ///

Bini Adamczak, Kader Attia, Kerstin Honeit
and Michala Paludan.
A sketch for conversations proposed by Suza Husse.

Drag Kings, Phantoms, Mirrors, Hands (one hundred years of dis/appearances) is a constellation that resonates some of the historical entanglements and queer potentials that flicker in 1917 2017 and between. What follows is a bumpy line of thought towards what can be thought of as a sketch for conversations, not a concept, but hopefully something that gives you a feeling of the field of relations that we can enter together.

It begins on November 24 and 25 at SixtyEight Art Institute in Copenhagen, and is nurtured by the recent works of artists and writers Bini Adamczak, Kader Attia, Kerstin Honeit and Michala Paludan. Drag Kings, Phantoms, Mirrors, Hands (one hundred years of dis/appearances) is a sketch for conversations with the spectres of the (queer, communist, colonial, feminist, imperial) histories these works carry; for tellings and re-imaginings that emerge from unforeseen relations drawn between documents of feminist history in Arbejdermuseet (the workers’ museum) in Copenhagen and the disappeared Palast der Republik in Berlin, between the Prussian castle being re-built in its very place and the phenomenon of phantom limbs in the human psyche, between the mirrors used to repair the imagination while keeping injuries and absences present, and the glitter of camp cowboys dancing to the demolition of imperial castles, between the Drag Kings of the Russian revolution and the emergence of Jamaican Dub music, between the decentralization of speech in feminist organizing and the embodiment of ghosts in the architectures of our times.

Hoping that you will join the listening, talking, thinking, mourning and laughing.

Die neue Unruhe in der Geschlechterlandschaft Film.
Drei Diskussionen zu Strategien.

/// November 9 2017 ///

Die Veranstaltung beleuchtet die Geschlechter-Ungerechtigkeiten hinter der Kamera, bei der Filmproduktion und die einschränkenden Genderrollen vor der Kamera innerhalb der Narration. In beiden Bereichen hat sich in den letzten Jahren eine aktivistische, kritische Diskurslandschaft entwickelt, sowohl bei Filmkonsument_innen als auch bei den Filmemacher_innen, die alternative Produktionsweisen gegen die üblichen Machtstrukturen im Filmbetrieb etablieren.

In drei Veranstaltungen soll den Studierenden die Möglichkeit gegeben werden durch persönliche Einblicke und konkrete Statistiken ihren Blick auf Film zu sensibilisieren. Durch die vortragenden Gäste werden konkret Hinweise auf bestehenden aktivistische Initiativen (z.B. Pro Quote Regie) und unterstützende Angebote (z.B. INTO THE WILD mentoring programm) gegeben und zusammen mit dem Publikum bei den Diskussionen Alternativen entworfen werden.

EXHIBITION REVIEW Berlinische Galerie

/// September 2017, Issue 107 ///

In her article 'Lippenbekenntnisse', Fiona McGovern writes in this quarter's edition of 'Texte zur Kunst' about Kerstin Honeit's exhibition in the video room of the Berlinische Galerie - Museum of Modern Art.

This issue's description:
"Identity politics" has always been beleaguered territory. Yet recently the debate around “identity" has intensified and (with Trump) even developed new fronts. This issue examines the present state of identity politics in the West, finding the commodification of identity in mass culture (as in the art market) to be a leading influence. We also recognize a divide between, on the one hand, non-dominant communities cohering around identity so as to become visible together; and on the other hand, individuals aiming to stand out as special or "unique" by dint of membership in various non-dominant groups. Such ambiguity, in the face of current leadership (see issue cover) lends only all the more urgency, we feel, for a serious engagement with “identity” vis-a-vis “politics” now.

Kerstin Honeit / Exhibition in Public Space

The video my castle your castle investigates the construction site of the Berliner Stadtschloss (the Berlin Castle), a Prussian baroque palace currently being rebuilt on the site of the “Palace of the Republic,” the now-demolished seat of the GDR’s parliament.
While significantly damaged during World War II, the Berliner Stadtschloss survived and was only finally torn down in 1950, following a decision of GDR authorities. Artist Kerstin Honeit looks at this loaded site as a place where national hegemonies supposedly transform into identity-generating architectures, and so appear as spaces which can be conquered and restaged.

Special Mention for my castle your castle
at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen

The experimental documentary short my castle your castle was awarded the 'Special Mention' by the jury of the German Competition 2017 at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.

Jury Statement:
'Based on the debate surrounding the reconstruction of the Berlin City Palace, the film addresses the question of how meaningful historicisation in urban planning is. The result is a surreal and at the same time haunting tableau.'

Mit ihrem Residence-Vorhaben, der Recherche für die geplante Videoarbeit mi castillo tu castillo , widmet sich Kerstin Honeit vor dem Hintergrund aktueller Wiederbelebungen nationalstaatlicher Mythen einer Großbaustelle deutscher Geschichte: der umstrittenen Rekonstruktion des Berliner Stadtschlosses auf dem Fundament des Palastes der Republik der DDR.

Ausgehend von der Großbaustelle als Bühne für unterschiedlichste soziale und materielle Konstruktionen von Repräsentation, inszeniert Honeit einen Kaffeekranz mit drei Generationen von Arbeiter*innen; damalige Akteur*innen vom Bau des Palastes der Republik, Akteur*innen von dessen Rückbau, sowie aktiven Akteur*innen des Wiederaufbaus des Preußen-Schlosses. Die Rohbau-Kulisse Stadtschloss und ein singender Cowboy bilden dabei den Rahmen für eine Aufführung von Abriss und Aufbau von Mythen.

‚I turn over th pictures of my voice in my head‘
Sprache als Akt der Befreiung in feministischen Avantgardefilmen und Videos

VALIE EXPORT, Sabine Marte, Anne Charlotte Robertson, Eija - Liisa Ahtila, Kerstin Honeit

Neben der speziellen Filmsprache im Avantgardefilm, die bewusst mit den herkömmlichen Sehgewohnheiten und Erwartungshaltungen konfrontiert, kommt gerade im feministischen Avantgardefilm der Sprache, dem Sprechen als kt der Befreiung eine besondere Bedeutung zu. Sei es ganz elementar das Finden der eigenen Sprache, die Reflexion über das Sprechen an sich wie in VALIE EXPORTS Videoarbeit I turn over the picturesof my voice in my head oder auch das Sprechen im Sinne des Ausbrechens aus dem Symbolischem der patriarchalen Kultur als Psychothriller-Poetry-Slam in Sabine Mates b-star untötbar. Oder aber ins Extrem getrieben: wie in Anne-Charlotte Robertsons Performance-Film Apologies, in dem das weiblich konnotierte Entschuldigen zu einem (befreienden) Redeschwall führt. Beispiel einer Sprach(nicht)Findung ist ein eindringlicher Voice-over-Monologe in Eija-Liisa Ahtilas Film Love is a treasure, dessen Ausgangspunkt Interviews mit psychotischen Frauen ist.

In der Collage Ich muss mit Ihnen sprechen reflektiert Kerstin Honeit Sprachermächtigung und gleichzeitig Normierung in von der immer gleichen Synchronsprecherin gedubbten Sätze schwarzer Schauspielerinnen.

Still: Ich muss mit Ihnen sprechen (2015)



Shifting the shape to resist. Resisting the shifting shapes.

Programmed by Madeleine Bernstorff

In Japanese mythology, shapeshifters are ghosts and demons which are able to transform into something different in a particularly skillful way. Sometimes, they do it so virtuously that they turn it into a shapeshifting competition – like the vixen and the raccoon dog who cleverly transforms into a fresh baked scone with sweet filling and thereby wins against the vixen-turned-princess who cannot withstand the temptation to taste that scone. And there is another story about the giant mushroom monster that wanted to be a proper and glorious monster but instead lives in a house all by himself full of melancholy and eventually is overpowered with hot Miso soup. But the shapeshifters also appear in the form of politicians who turned into reptiles – all conspiracy with quite an amount of kitsch. They are – and they are not.

The spirits of the ghosts come back as morphing revenants referring to pending matters, ruptures, fears and also possibly superior invocations. The stream of commodities in a night full of wafts of mist, of “diffuse consensed milk” (René Pollesch). “It is not certain anymore that a subject is not an object.” (Achille Mbembe). Post-disciplinary flexibilisation comes along with short exerted attention rates that speak out in the exuberant Gif-production in (anti-)social media for instance. Click and it starts to fidget – repeatable without limits. Unstable, crisis-burdened conditions are accompanied by tugging requirements of creativity. We should face the disciplining fear to be made redundant which undermines our self-respect with even more self-confidence.

The film and video makers are competing to not only subvert themselves (is that possible after all?) but something supposedly factual. To explore, terminate and x-ray conventional functions and realities holding their ground through power with their form findings: shift, abandon, enhance. To express what has not been told yet and what cannot be made tangible by language alone, this is where the films come in line. They shape something out of a material that has not been put into a form before.

Two programmes: these films feature something about the world and they say: Look closely. And don’t fidget too much “in the performances that are life or power” (Pollesch). There are things that can be changed. And they are set in motion if you can see it.

Honorary Mention for Talking Business
at Monitoring / Kasseler Dokfest

The 3 channel Installation Talking Business was awarded by the jury of the Monitoring exhibition 2015 at the Kasseler Dokumentarfilm und Videofest:

'In Talking Business, Kerstin Honeit explicitly yet elegantly breaks through the hidden mechanisms of media presentation. Role playing is made obvious, re-staged, interpreted and recycled in form of artistic self-references. Icons are dressed down and cycled back into the whys and wherefores of everyday life. What do we mean when we speak the language of media - and who is speaking?'


Monitoring / Kasseler Dokfest

///10 - 15 November 2015, Kassel ///

Monitoring provides a space for film and video-based installations and other time-based media works of recent years that require presentation formats beyond the classic cinema screen. This year (2015), the jury has selected sixteen works out of 266 international submissions: including works by artists from Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA. The submissions followed an open call, without pre-set topics or restrictions concerning content or technical media. The works were chosen upon their ability to enfold in a spatial setting and the contemporary relevance of their topics. All works in the exhibition are nominated for the Golden Cube award for the best media installation, which is endowed with 3,500 €.

The Monitoring-exhibition is shown in the following places: Kasseler Kunstverein, KulturBahnhof (Südflügel & Stellwerk) and Galerie Coucou.

Kerstin Honeit Inside/Out - Viewing Berlin

///3 November 2015, Berlin ///

Image Movement is delighted to host an evening with Kerstin Honeit.

As a native Berliner the city forms a crucial backdrop for the staging of Kerstin Honeit’s practice in video work, performances and installations. Here she investigates intersections between representation and reception, real and fictional space and the body and its construction.

For the screening at Image Movement, Honeit will present four of her recent video pieces where the city of Berlin builds the framework for site specific interventions such as the animalistic activism of 'Pigs in Progress' (Oberhausen German competition, 2014) or the reunion of the TV-heroines Alexis and Krystle Carrington from the 80's series and camp classic Dynasty in Berlin-Zehlendorf ('Talking Business' Monitoring, Kasseler Dokumentarfilm und Videofest, 2015).

Admission is free.

/// 18. October 2015, Berlin ///

For the 8th time, we are presenting film projects and grant-holders who have received funding from the Female Artists' Program of the Berlin Senate Chancellery for Cultural Affairs over the last two years. Festival success stories stand alongside projects still at a conceptual stage, for this event is a screening and a public discussion of work in one.

Titles such as MOVEMENT, FICTIONS AND FUTURES #1, or TALKING BUSINESS sketch out the range of questions the projects pose not just on reality but also on the medium of film. Other titles such as WITHOUT BORDER or DEIN HERZ (AT) link the abstract to concrete biographies and everyday situations.

We open the series with RAINBOW'S GRAVITY by Kerstin Schroedinger and Mareike Bernien, an investigation of Agfa Color New Film which was manufactured in National Socialist Germany. Taking the film's three different layers of emulsion as its discursive thread, the work takes an in-depth look at the escapist landscape of color of the period and interrogates the material pre-requisites, ideological incorporations, and continuities of the Agfa color palette. The images projected in the former factory space do not just construct themselves, but also eyes for whom historicization has become a habit, attempting to make visible what color does not show.

Additional projects will be presented by Shira Wachsmann, Anu Pennanen, Yalda Afsah?/?Ginan Seidl, Irene Schüller, Anja Dornieden, Juliane Ebner, Yvon Chabrowski, Minze Tummescheit, Kerstin Honeit, Kolja Barbara Kunt, Petra Lottje, Angelika Levi, Isabell Spengler, Catharina Göldner, Vika Kirchenbauer.

/// August 28 – October 10 2015, cubus-m, Berlin ///

Still: Talking Business (2015)

In the work Talking Business, Kerstin Honeit continues her research on the phenomenon of the disembodied voice and applies herself especially to the reproduction and doubling that underlies the process of dubbing. Working in collaboration with the voice actors Ursula Heyer and Gisela Fritsch, a film script was developed based on the substantial amount of material they collected together.

It was these two voice artists who 30 years ago gave the fictional characters Krystle Carrington and Alexis Carrington Colby from the TV soap opera Dynasty their German voices. While the TV actresses achieved a great deal of media attention and fame, the two voice artists stayed relatively unknown. Their voices constructed a new hybrid identity of series characters who started to take on their own life with the growing popularity of the soap opera, mixing the Hollywood narrative with the lives of the voice actors themselves.

Honeit dissolves the familiar unity of sound and picture, voice and body in her 3-channel video work. The two voice actors appear in front of the camera as themselves while at the same time challenging the film characters by personifying a double role. Through asynchronous elements and fluid transitions between the roles of film character, actor and voice actor, Honeit orchestrates a multiple-voiced work that continues to question and redefine the issue of 'who is talking'.

Still: Talking Business, 2014, Kerstin Honeit

With the exhibition History is a Warm Gun, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in 2015 resumes the series of exhibitions by fellows of the Fine Arts Scholarship of the Berlin Senate. The art deals with life as such – directly and over again, reflecting experiences and responding on its own level of reflection. And yet, life in its diversity and unpredictability ensures that art always presents new questions and issues – History is a Warm Gun is an exhibition, expressing the experience of reality by artists, whose center of life and work is in Berlin, and who in 2014 were granted the Fine Arts Scholarship of the Berlin Senate. The exhibition maps out various perspectives on history by today’s generation of artists. In a playful manner, the title refers to the Beatles song Happiness is a Warm Gun and emphasizes the empowerment of the participating artists to develop, also contrary to established historiography, own historical narratives. History is a Warm Gun captures a current trend in art production and accompanies the selection of the artists in a seismographic way. The exhibition outlines a wide range of questions that are picked up by a younger generation of artists and that are dedicated to the mutual contemplation of past and present with recourse to historical and personal events. In doing so, it is discussed how and which history and stories are relevant and how they are communicated in paintings, sculptures, installations and films. How do artists, who live in Berlin, deal with their country of birth or the country in which they live, and how does an interest in one’s own biography express itself? Hitherto neglected historical events are interrelated with current and personal events and are repeatedly put in the focus of production. The artists took advantage of the scholarship in order to reflect their artistic practice and working methods, to conduct extensive research and to explore the influences of previous generations on their own artist generation. With references to history, ethnology or biology they discuss in videos, photographs, paintings, sculptures, installations, and performances diverse social, cultural and political issues.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication as part of the n.b.k. book series “Berlin”, published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne, with a foreword by Tim Renner and Marius Babias, as well as texts by Jan Brandt, Britta Schmitz and Silke Wittig.

For the first time, with VIDEONALE.15, the Open Call for the Videonale competition featured a theme. With “The Call of the Wild”, Videonale asked what potential the concept of “the Wild” holds for the description and examination of the alien in the sense of unknown or till now unfamiliar fields of activity, image production or conceptual thinking. From the more than 1,200 submissions from 76 countries, 38 positions from 19 countries have been selected.

“What we are looking for with “Call of the Wild” is the exploration of the unstable territories in which the way to deal with new social, political, cultural and aesthetic constellations is being discussed and for which there is currently no adequate vocabulary at our disposal. In the VIDEONALE.15 exhibition, 38 international artistic positions have each found their own way to pose questions on this theme and give us food for thought: They cover a wide range, from the observation of the shifts and realignments within society, to the question about how the flaring up of worldwide trouble spots can affect personal circumstances on a small , and the political situation on a large scale; the question about how to handle the increasingly obvious blanket monitoring of our data- and communication channels and its effects is examined, as are the new aesthetic and artistic forms of using the surface of a digitally generated world”, says Tasja Langenbach, artistic director of VIDEONALE.15.

The Hooks» explores the phenomenon and the mechanics of Hooklines*. While pop songs are ephemeral and while the preferences of the listeners change, the hookline, once it has settled into the circuits of memory, continues to exist subconsciously. As if it took its listeners captive, the melody writes itself into one’s memory for ever.
In his performances, Damian Rebgetz researches personal and cultural memories that arose from his work with hooklines and pop songs of the 1980s. Together with the composer Paul Hankinson, the dancer Anna-Luise Recke and the artist Emma Cattell he unfolds a complex fabric in which various black boxes are opened and put into connection with each other. Remixed pop songs of the 1980s become incantations of a «post-disco-topical» melancholy. «The Hooks» is a visual song cycle for vocals and piano and asks the question: To be hooked or not to be hooked.

'The Hooks' Photo: Dorothea Tuch

Who doesn't know it, that song from last summer, that sound that brings comfort to the lonely moments, the constantly recurring soundtrack of one's own memories or a melody that seems to embrace the whole of life? That's exactly what constitutes a successful hookline in a song. “The Hooks,” the second HAU co-production with Damian Rebgetz, examines the phenomenon of hooklines and how they work. In this performance he investigates the personal and cultural memories that arise from the hooklines and pop songs. Working with the composer Paul Hankinson, the dancer Anna-Luise Recke and the artist Emma Cattell, he unfolds a complex web in which different Black Boxes are opened and linked up to. Newly adapted pop songs from the 1980s become evocations of a “post-discotopian” melancholy. “The Hooks” is a visual song cycle for voice and piano that asks the question: To be hooked or not to be hooked?

What is it to inherit? What is inheritance? Who inherits?
Who leaves it for you?
Why you?

What if you don’t want to inherit? What if you don’t have room?
What do you do with all that stuff?
How do you carry it with you, from place to place, year to year?
What stories belong to it?
What if you don’t want to be reminded?
How do you hold on to it all?
How do you display it?
How do you describe it? Who to?
Are you describing it, or is it describing you?

Where is the boundary, between you and the things, the things and you? Or between her who gave or left you the thing in the first place, and the stories that are stuck to it, as well as those that fell away. Are histories dependent upon objects, or objects upon histories? What is the boundary between me and you, this thing and that part of your story? Is it my story, your story, their story or our story? What if we refuse it? Can we say no? Where are we without it? What do you do with it after you’re done?

What is inheritance?
What is it to inherit?
Why is there inheritance?
Why is there no inheritance?
Why are we bothering to re-write the story if it is not ours anyway?

What if we make it up?

Elly Clarke, The George Richmond Portrait Project (2008-ongoing)

Elly Clarke has been tracing portraits by her great-great-great grandfather George Richmond RA (1809-1896) to private homes across the UK (and occasionally beyond) for more than five years, photographing the portraits and the living descendants of those her ancestor portrayed in situ, and conducting audio interviews about what they know both of their ancestors and the portraits.

Kerstin Honeit, Becoming 10, (2007-10)

In the photo installation 'Becoming 10' Kerstin Honeit performs her ‘un-met’ 9 half siblings from the former East and West of Berlin. Based only on the information of age, name, address Honeit stages herself in their real environments and apartment blocks in imagined poses, using the gesture of drag.

Lisa Jugert, History Vision Machines, (2010)

History Vision Machines turns the machine that records everything back on itself. Various camera models are presented both as subject and recording device. Matched with a mirror and a location fitting to each model, the series encourages a consideration of the manner in which our personal and political, individual and collective histories have been presented, and the influence of technology upon this.

A group exhibition and program on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the sister city partnership of
Wiesbaden and Berlin-Kreuzberg.

2014 is the 50th anniversary of the sister city partnership of Wiesbaden with Berlin-Kreuzberg (since 2001 Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg). One of the first inner-German sister city pairs, the relationship can be seen as an expression of solidarity historically bound by the experience of the Berlin Airlifts, in which Wiesbaden-based US planes dropped supplies on the city.

Superficially, the two sisters could not be more different:

On the one hand we have Wiesbaden, with its Kurhaus Casino, historic downtown, and large population of millionaires; and on the other we have the infamous Kreuzberg, which since 1968, during the time of student unrest, has been a place of societal and social upheaval. Squatting, anarchy, poverty, political agitation and parallel societies are associated with Kreuzberg, as well as cultural diversity, creativity, art, urban middle class and gentrification.

From 12.9 to 14.12.2014, the Nassauischer Kunstverein (NKV) will celebrate the anniversary of these two "antipodes" with an exhibition and program: For this two-city exhibition, "squatting" and gentrification are used as conceptual starting points, and abstracted into inverted symbolic forms by Kreuzberg and Berlin artists in Wiesbaden. The 19th century mansion on the "boulevard" of Wiesbaden that serves as NKV’s home will be “occupied.” Though the exhibition is traditionally curated, its run time turns the gallery into a dynamic space as participating artists create a dialogue with their work (through performance, video, graphic design, architecture, historical position, popular culture, etc.). They are “squatters,” manipulating the space with no influence from the Kunstverein “landlords,” other than logistics and organization. The gallery then becomes a dynamic space that changes in the same chaotic fashion as a city.

The theme of the exhibition is the phenomenon of gentrification, an acute social problem of today with great visibility, especially in Kreuzberg, as evidenced by the large amount of media coverage on the subject. A look at the history of Wiesbaden, however shows that gentrification is not merely an issue of the 21st century that has taken place in the hip neighborhoods of the capital: Kaiser Wilhelm II greatly influenced the city-building of Wiesbaden, and his regular visits to the "Nice of the North" brought numerous nobles, artists and wealthy entrepreneurs into the city where they permanently settled. The multiplying number of inhabitants and the influence of Prussia brought about the construction of buildings such as Kurhaus Wiesbaden with its casino and the Hessian State Theatre on Wilhelmstrasse, whose architectures characterizes the city today.

Is Wiesbaden the 20th century prototype to the process of gentrification?

Another question worth exploring is art’s role in gentrification. Artists and cultural workers wholesale low-income profession- are often paradoxically viewed as the alleged perpetrators of socio-economic restructuring, since their presence quarter can be attractive. Since 2006, for example the former Güterbahnhofs West has become an artists district. The exhibition will also aim to explore and challenge this school of thought that blames artists and dissidents for larger societal problems. While they want to offer new and critical perspective on the subject, the program of lectures and discussions take theoretical base into account.

1001 Reality. Sequels for an unfinished novel

by Eran Schaerf at Berlin Documentary Forum 3

Radio play and live broadcast /// Berlin HKW

1001 Reality. Sequels for an unfinished novel

Eran Schaerf with Pauline Boudry, Elfriede Jelinek, Leonhard Koppelmann, Stephanie Metzger, Eva Meyer,
Uriel Orlow, Andrea Thal and Tim Zulauf

In 1938, simulated news reports in Orson Welles’ radio play The War of the Worlds convinced many listeners that Martians were invading the earth. The episode sparked public outrage and brought into relief widely held assumptions about the truth claims of certain media: radio plays are considered staged fiction, while news reports traffic in documentation.

But how stable are these categories? What can a radio play document when it combines journalistic, essayistic, and biographical forms of narration? Which form of narration documents an existing society and which brings about a new one? Artist Eran Schaerf’s 1001 Reality. Sequels for an unfinished novel investigates such questions through a radio broadcast produced on location at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt and transmitted live on Bayern2.

It draws its source material from the philosopher Jacqueline Kahanoff’s unfinished novel Tamra, an account of a forbidden romance between a Muslim boy and its eponymous protagonist, a young woman of Jewish origin. Born in India and holding a British passport, Tamra lands as a teenager in colonial Cairo of the 1930s, where she experiences conflict with the members and ideology of her European­educated, privileged class. Schaerf, finding echoes of the novel’s themes in Kahanoff’s nonfiction writing—particularly her philosophy of Levantinism—uses the format of the radio play to continue the narrative of Tamra, querying the relevance of the Levantine model for postcolonial Europe.

Additional performers: Kerstin Honeit, Lara Körte, Karolin Meunier, Samuel Streiff

Pigs in Progress links two opposing phenomena within urban development: the current gentrification process in Berlin, where long-term tenants are displaced from the city centre to maximise real-estate profits; and the experience that house owners in the wealthier suburbs face with wild boars moving into their gardens. Swinish behaviour all- round!

Armchair – Attention – Life Signal
a intermedia project by Eran Schaerf

Zurich /// April 9, 2014, 6 pm ///

FM Scenario

On 09. April 2014 Eran Schaerf’s exhibition FM-Scenario: Armchair - Attention - Life Signal will open at Les Complices* in Zürich. This intermedial project uses the Internet as a place of production in order to generate content for further media, such as radio broadcast, exhibition and publication.

“The exhibition ‘Concerning the Plurality of Time’ opened to the public in the Israeli Museum of Period Rooms last weekend. The exhibition includes more than 200 armchairs and stools offered to the museum after an armchair in the museum’s French Salon was destroyed. Among other exhibits on display are a stool stolen anonymously from Security Services headquarters, as well as designs for armchairs to be produced. Baron Rothschild’s declaration that the destroyed armchair is replaceable triggered a deluge of donations. The museum’s readiness to consider an armchair from any period as a replacement for the missing piece drew criticism from the Academy of History.” (Excerpt from montage by Bastian_996)

An audio montage compiled in the FM-Scenario online studio at www.fm-scenario.net serves Eran Schaerf as a script for the exhibition at Les Complices*. The exhibition consists of a conference setting that is used for the production of the exhibition. In this setting, four performers repeatedly execute three actions. The aim of these actions is to bring, by chance and in different rhythms, a sign – name, term, number, object – into play. If two identical signs are brought into play synchonously, then the game begins anew. The addressee of the performance is a camera. The performers take turns assuming the role of the cameraperson. A second camera accompanies the performance, yet acts independent of the script.

In FM-Scenario: Armchair - Attention - Life Signal variations of possible live-image-sound combinations can be experienced. A procedure that exemplifies Eran Schaerf’s praxis within FM-Scenario. The project shows the components of a mass-medial production of reality in which the combinatorics of texts and images constantly allows the occurrence of new narratives.

The exhibition is the fifth of six exhibitions of the project “FM-Scenario – The Listener’s Voice” by Eran Schaerf.

On the 11th of April 2014 at 9:03 p.m., several compilations by users of the online studio will be broadcast by Bayerischer Rundfunk on Bayern2 as part of the program hör!spiel!art.mix. Following the broadcast, the program can be downloaded as a podcast at www.hoerspielpool.de, where podcasts of all preceding broadcasts of previous compilations as well as background broadcasts can be found.

Publication 'Tegel: Propositions and Speculations' / Still: 'How to say goodbye?', 2012

Over a period of eighteen months, a selected group of international artists and writers focused their attention on Tegel airport, they observed how it is used, they engaged in new activities and imagined how the building might function in the future. This book and DVD is the outcome of what might be described as an open-ended enquiry and, as such, embodies new perspectives and approaches to the problem of urban renewal, regeneration, social organisation, mobility and the legacy of modernist architecture. This approach to site is central to imagining how art practice can slow down, re-orientate and redefine the successive cycle of masterplans and regeneration schemes so that we can begin to consider what is at stake in the spaces that we occupy.

Peter Adey, Sean Ashton, Michelle Atherton, Diane Bauer, Amanda Beech, Federica Bueti, Maja Ciric, Jamie Crewe, Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson, Bryan Eccleshall, Elke Falat, Stella Flatten, Hondartza Fraga, Rachel Garfield, Margarita Gluzberg, Julian Gough, Robert Gschwantner, Giorgio Cappozzo, Jane Harris, Gill Hobson, Janet Hodgson, Dale Holmes, Kerstin Honeit, Ben Hope, Stephan Hüsch, Jaspar Joseph-Lester, Karl Heinz Jeron, Renata Kaminska, Natasja Keller, Sharon Kivland, Jon Klein, Liane Lang, Jeff Luckey, TC McCormack, Ashley Metz, Karina Nimmerfall, Irene Pätzug, Amy Patton, Susanne Prinz, Boris Riedel, Miguel Santos, Gary Simmonds, Robert Partridge, Águeda Simó, Joachim Stein, Ricarda Vidal, Julie Westerman.

Pigs in Progress: Kerstin Honeit

mit einem Gastbeitrag / Live-Zuschaltung der Mieter_innen-Initiative Kotti & Co

Suppe & Bar: 19 Uhr
Veranstaltung: 20 Uhr

Vor dem Hintergrund aktueller Gentrifizierungsprozesse in Berlin inszeniert die Videoarbeit Pigs in Progress und der performative Prolog von Kerstin Honeit eine Neuordnung zwischen Körper und Stimme: So sind beispielsweise auf der Audiospur der Arbeit Statements von
Berliner Mieter_innen zu hören, die gegen ihre Vertreibung aus der für die Immobilien-spekulation lukrativen Innenstadt protestieren. Diese Stimmen sind jedoch dem Körper auf
der Bildebene genauso wenig zuzuordnen wie die Erfahrungsberichte der Bewohner_innen der Suburbs, in denen Wildschweine sich Grund und Boden “zurück erobern” und in den Stadtraum vordringen.

Anders als die oft im Zusammenhang mit „race, class, und gender“ homogenisierend wirkende mediale Strategie des Lip-Synchings oder Filmdubbings, legt es Kerstin Honeits Performance durch die Akzentuierung der Diskrepanzen zwischen Ton- und Bildebene darauf an, Spiel- und Handlungsräume für Fragen nach Aneignung, Zuschreibung und Eigentum zu eröffnen.

Mit dem performativem Prolog, der auch eine Live-Zuschaltung der Mieter_innen-Initiative
Kotti & Co aus Berlin Kreuzberg beinhaltet und dem Screening, setzt Kerstin Honeit hier ihre Auseinandersetzung mit der medialen Verkörperung von Stimme fort und nimmt lipsynch-enderweise zwischen einer Rotte Wildschweine platz.

“fm-scenario – The Listener's Voice” is an inter-media project by Eran Schaerf, in which the Internet is used as the site of production so as to generate further media, such as radio broadcasts, exhibitions and publications.
The starting point of this inter-media project is comprised of Eran Schaerf’s news radio games of the fictive radio program “The Voice of the Listener” (2002). Based on an archive made available by Eran Schaerf, with audio modules the curator Margit Rosen creates a montage that serves Schaerf as a script for a performance-for-the-camera. Resembling the practice of news agencies, the reports from the fm-scenario montage are shown in images and simultaneously transmitted to the ZKM exhibition space. They are then presented by performers in performances-for-the-camera within a scenic exhibition structure.

'FM Scenario -broadcasting language, undercover operation, station announcement, error' Dortmund 2013

“fm-scenario – The Listener’s Voice” is an intermedial project by Eran Schaerf which uses the internet as a place of production in order to generate content for further media—concretely: radio broadcast, exhibition, and publication. Eran Schaerf’s newscast radio plays, particularly The Listener’s Voice (2002), a fictive radio station that receives calls from listeners, constitute the intermedial project’s starting point.

On February 15, 2013, the second of the project’s five currently planned exhibitions will open at Hartware MedienKunstVerein in Dortmund. Each exhibition has its own structure and its own narrative. Drawing from the archive that is accessable at the online studio at fm-scenario.net, a curator compiles a montage which serves Schaerf as a script for a performance for the camera. This performance takes place in the exhibition space. Analogous to production in news agencies, the exhibition space is coded as a place of image production.

New Performance Piece by Eran Schaerf
/// 1 – 30 September 2012 ///

with Karolin Meunier, Kerstin Honeit, Stefan Pente, William Wheeler

Eran Schaerf’s project examines the constitution of the mass media and the space produced by it. The project offers users an Internet archive (fm-scenario.net) containing audio modules such as listener calls, features, and news, where they can compile stories. One such compilation will form the initial scenario for Schaerf’s installation. Located in the interpreter booths of the main conference room, an architecture which reflects translation processes, the borders between fact and fiction, sender and receiver, user and author, become blurred questioning the production of space by means of language.

Exhibition as part of Between Walls and Windows. Architektur und Ideologie.

Still: Pigs in Progress (2012), Kerstin Honeit

Turtle Lab Open Days occupy the interim space between studio and exhibition, private and public, casual and serious, work in development and "finished products". Their objective is to bring together a group of artists from in and around Turtle Lab and thus enter a "cross-media" symposium sporting a mixture of individual works and word-exchange possibly triggered by what is on display.
Turtlelab Berlin is a studio space at Schwedterstr. 262, currently shared by Henrike Daum, Andy Graydon, Michael Höpfner, Yuki Jungesblut and Anna Martinetz.

The theme for the first installment of Turtlelab Open Days is "Visiting the Zoo" or more specifically it is a set of associations triggered by the word Zoo. So on display are (obviously) unusual animals and creatures but also records of explorations, categorisations and ponderings. It is not so much the exhaustive treatment of the subject matter that is the aim of the show but rather to engage in the joy of discovery, curiosity and open discussion.

Infinite Jest is the title of a novel of now cult status by US author David Foster Wallace. Wallace’s suicide in 2008 was the focus of much attention in international literary circles. “Infinite Jest” was published in 1996 in the US, with a German translation by Ulrich Blumenbach following much later, in 2009. The novel describes a fictional pleasure-driven consumer society – which is increasingly afflicted by depression and individual isolation.
At an elite tennis academy, young people are pushed to the limit; and at a rehabilitation center, a motley crew comes together of people who have failed due to crime, drugs and depression. Their performance-driven mentality clashes with the fear of failure; yet failure is already the everyday reality.

“Infinite Jest” is also the title of the movie in the novel that so engrosses the members of its audience that they watch it over and over again, forgetting to eat, drink, sleep or go to the bathroom – and eventually die. Seen as the metaphorical superstructure of the novel, the movie also describes how the subject disappears due to a suggestive force in the pictures. At the same time, Wallace chases this very subject through the 1500 pages of his novel – one last great search for the self.

Tegel - Fights of Fancy at Kino Babylon Berlin

Kino Babylon (Saal 2+3) /// 02.06.2012 /// 6.30–11.30 pm

Video Postcard (2012), Still: Kerstin Honeit / Alison J.Carr

TEGEL: FLIGHTS OF FANCY is a video programme that responds to the planned closure of Berlin’s Tegel Airport. The project is organised by Jaspar Joseph-Lester, Susanne Prinz and Julie Westerman and builds on a series of events, exhibitions and publications that have been realised through cross- cultural collaboration between artists based in the UK and Germany. The event will be hosted by Verein zur Fo?rderung von Kunst und Kultur am Rosa- Luxemburg-Platz.

The closure of Tegel airport marks an important change in the way air travel is organised and experienced. The design of this airport is of a time when flight was associated with glamour, fantasy, technological progress, romantic chance encounters and fictional disasters. The building consists of a large concrete hexagonal structure circumnavigated by a corridor, punctuated with brightly coloured check-in desks. Viewing platforms and executive lounges populate the circumference of the building, inviting the traveller to enjoy a navigable thoroughfare instead of the shed-like enclosure with limited seating. There are commissioned art works, restaurants and bars, cafe?s and shops. The de?cor follows the distinctive bright colour schemes of its age all the way through to the plastic sinks and hand dryer in the restrooms.

Tegel Airport is closing and while there are rumours about the next incarnation of this elegant building, what it might become in the future remains uncertain. The 36 films selected for TEGEL: FLIGHTS OF FANCY speculate on both how the airport might be occupied in the future and what it symbolized in the past, they explore how air travel is hard wired into the imagination: the cinematic (disaster, romance and action movie all in one), and consider concepts of cultural
mobility, exchange and internationalism.

LECTURE by Antke Engel at IFFF Dortmund / Köln 2012

Disobedient Obfuscation /// 18.04.2012

Video Letters: BODY (2011) , Still: Kerstin Honeit

By means of film and video material – including material from Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Danica Dakic, Kerstin Honeit, Nguyen Tan Hoang – the lecture examines the issue of how far queerness is first and foremost aligned to the protagonists or to the narration. How else does it otherwise come into the picture? And to what extent can one talk about queer aesthetic strategies?

SHOWTIME goes Sheffield

OPENING EVENT: 01.03.2012 /// 29.02.2012 - 11.03.2012

Allie Carr and Kerstin Honeit were brought together by LoBe, Berlin, taking part in a residency together in June 2011 and a subsequent exhibition, ‘Showtime’ in December 2011. As they prepared to work together they began to exchange ‘video letters’, which they continue to do. Their only rule is that they must respond to the video letter they receive.

Two ongoing dialogues have emerged out of this practice: ‘Video Letters: Voice’ and ‘Video Letters: Body’. Over the course of these conversations a shared visual language has evolved in which the commonalities and differences of their respective practices are teased out in an intimate way. As the artists technically and visually quote one another, conceptual and geographic distances are bridged. However, because of the conversational back and forth structure, the two artist’s identities remain recognisably distinct.

The exhibition at Sheffield Institute of Arts will see the ‘Video Letters’ reconfigured for the new context. The video work will be supported by stills from the conversations installed as photographs on the walls of the gallery. The mezzanine will be used to show an accumulative project of Honeit’s: ‘Position #1’, a video work in which a static woman standing in front of a closed garage, whilst pedestrian and road traffic moves around her.

Honeit has created ‘Position #1’ in Berlin and Chicago and will add a new Sheffield instalment to create a three-channel piece on projectors.

Allie Carr & Kerstin Honeit at Galerie LoBe London / Berlin, Berlin

Alison J Carr and Kerstin Honeit began working together at LoBe in June 2011. Their collaboration involves an ongoing exchange of ‘video letters’. These conversations commenced with dancing to Lady Gaga and descriptions of bodily affliction producingtwo ongoing dialogues: ‘Video Letters: Body’ and ‘Video Letters: Voice’. As the conversations continue we see the artists perform for each other: dancing to music, intervening in gallery spaces, asking other people to help them explore themes like the gaze. The only rule the artists adhere to, is that they must respond to the video letter they receive with a follow up video. A shared visual language is evolving as the artists both technically and visually quote one another, mimicking the way in which a verbal conversation uses repetition to register understanding. The conversation explores public and private spaces, intimate performances and investigative encounters.

Postcard of 'Other Places' Show (Photo: Tema Stauffer)

Other Places, guest curated by Tema Stauffer, brings together different generations of international artists whose photographs contribute to a dialogue about individuals and communities—past and present—existing in social and political margins based on sexuality and sexual identity. A selection of work by five artists from the United States, Mexico and Germany serves as a foundation for examination of each of their larger series and continuing practices.

ARTIST TALK: 20.07.2011 @ Galerie Suvi Lehtinen

“Keep connected, you are never alone, never alone with a mobile phone in your pocket.”1

Over the last decade, particularly since the mass take-up of the mobile phone, the ever-
increasing mobility - of people, goods, information and images - has radically altered the
way we perceive, interpret, navigate and even describe the world. Notions of presence
and absence, solitude and togetherness and even of geography are changing, as our
personally tailored collections of contacts, communities, photos and politics are with us
24/7. The way we travel around the places we live in, and how we interact with others
whilst we’re there, has a great impact on the way we understand not only where we are
but also who we are. Communication and movement are, and always have been, closely
linked, dictating the scope of our influence. But today, in a world where one tweeted
photo can be seen across five continents within seconds, that influence can reach areas
and cultures of which we have no concept.

Here, six projects present six different approaches to the project of mobility. From
Simon Clark’s epic cycle journey around the UK delivering postcards he picked up from
the Galapagos Islands direct into people’s hands to plan b’s live redrawing of their GPS
traces gathered over their past year in Berlin direct onto the gallery wall; from Enda
O’Donoghue paintings created from low-res mobile phone photos found on the internet
to Kerstin Honeit’s multi-city performance-experiments where she instructs women to
stand on the same area of pavement for fifteen minutes - and finally from Fedora
Romita’s audio recordings of the U-Bahn network of Berlin as a means of getting to
know the city she just moved to, to my own five minute video showing an unexpected
moment of stillness on the German autobahn - these are personal portraits of
navigation. But, between them, they touch on wider issues that affect us all as we
negotiate our way around the world C including gender, power, surveillance and the
relationship between physical and virtual materiality.

Elly Clarke is an artist & curator based in Berlin and Birmingham, UK.

A series of artist talks and related events will take place during the run of this exhibition
and a specially commissioned set of limitedCedition prints by each of the artists released
at the opening. Please check the gallery website for further details and updates.
