After four postponements caused by the pandemic, an unusual art show in Berlin puts the obstacle at the center of the work.

The exhibition “Corona Culture - What the fuck is happening ?!” has transformed the cellar vaults and vaults of the Alte Münze in the center of the capital into a 4000 square meter art area.

Berlin - The works of more than 100 artists from around 30 nations are revealed like walking through a dilapidated labyrinth.

According to their own statements, the curating duo Kala & Krüger wanted to “create space for collective experiences” with the exhibition.

In a corona-related “time of profound socio-cultural change”, a “living safe space for art and culture” emerges.

The exhibition runs through phases in five sections that can also be linked to the development of the pandemic, such as information overload, standstill, normalization.

The artists work with accessible stages, music, performances, many videos, installations, light sculptures or acoustic works.

The topic is always how the pandemic affects values, relationships or longings.

Marie Jayne Chanel has mounted halved chairs on a wall with “Waiting Room - 2”.

The sculpture “Mind Turbine” by Isabelle Tellié, Tinka Vey and Yule Post reacts to the push of a button, transforming the cellar vault with a satellite-like sculpture made of metal, light and sound with changing reflections.

In the multimedia installation “Pleasant Palce” by Jos Porath and Marie Zwinzscher, a doll-like woman has created a separate paradise of plants and furniture in a glass construction.

From an equally isolated room, she can be animated to small actions on a monitor using emotionally charged terms.

Jonas Urbat and Bruno Montañez give a huge basement room with the light-sound installation “Who are you when silence and noise become one another” the ambience of one of those famous Berlin clubs that had to remain closed during the long Corona months.
