Aktionsraum 2 (action space2), Ebersberger Kunstverein

 Ebersberger Kunstverein 
 25th of September (opening) - 4th of September 2020
Galerie “Alte Brennerei” im Klosterbauhof 6,  85560 Ebersberg (near Munich) Bavaria, Germany
At the opening evening on 25th September there will be video programm in which three video work of mine will be screened “ Whither goest thou “, “koud slova” and “conecta – no conecta”
On the 2nd and 3rd of October 2020 I will conduct two live performances “peel off (Ablösen) in collaboration with Tanja Wilking (Munich) and the solo performance Isolate (Isolation)
In 1969, Eva Madelung (patron), Peter Nemetschek (artist / photographer) and Alfred Gulden (writer / filmmaker) established the legendary Aktionsraum 1 (action space 1) as an avant-garde collective in Munich, in which conventional work and presentation forms in the art industry should be avoided. The aim was to enable the new performative, institutional and societal-critical efforts in arts to make a public appearance. This action space 1 also functioned as an experimental field, in which the audience was included and art was conveyed in the form of lectures and discussions.
In memory of that ground breaking campaign, curator Peter Kees invented  Aktionsraum 2 (action space 2)
Whether digitization, a changing world of work, rapidly growing capitalism or increasing social problems, the economic, social and societal consequences of the pandemic also have to be negotiated and much more.
There is space for action, discourse, art, lecture, discussion, performance, film. That is why action space 2 sees itself as a field of experimentation in which current topics can be negotiated artistically or not artistically.

More from Kodekü (Collision of the the Arts)

Kodekü - (Kollision der Künste) - Collision of the Arts, Bischofswerda, Germany , 03.09.-13.09.20

I was taking part in this 10-day art project in which artists from various disciplines and international origins come together, live and work in

There is currently a lot of discussion about how it is possible to revitalize rural regions. An important point here is the question of how the creative scene can be drawn into the small town and networked with one another. In order to counteract the politically precarious situation in the east of Saxony, Germany the cultural revitalization of small cities is an essential concern. This is exactly where our project starts. Between 03.09.2020 and 13.09.2020 I created two side specific installations . >Dialogue< which is a in room installation at the KAS, Altes Kino and >Tor< a Land Art installations in the Schillerpark.

Furthermore I gave a variation of performance isolate on 06.09.20 and a performance workshop on 10.09.20 at KAS for school children. Finally followed by the connected-not connected" performance at Schillerpark. This performance was in collaboration with Ulrich Thiem who escorted the performance with his cello. The Land Art installation >Tor< was integrated in the performance

“Curated” by Social Networks

Curated” by Social Networks


An project by Beam Collective, Tel Aviv, Israel in protest of censorship of Human Body in Social Networks,


29th of August 2020 – 03th of October 2020

Five works of mine which were censored "curated" on social media platforms such as Facebook and You Tube are include in the project/exhibition 

For the last decade, different Social Networks became the main platforms for artists to promote and sell their works, yet, a huge group of the artists is ostracized and denied access to those platforms. 
The policies are absurd and reflect views that are better suited to the XIX than XXI century. The artworks removed by the Social Networks are the images that hang freely in the museums and galleries and presented in numerous exhibitions and shows without any controversy. “Neo Victorianism” conservative movements attempt to redefine the line between pornography and art with desire to define any image of human body as pornographic.
