Text von Diana Bach 2019 


In the heart of a garden colony in Berlin-Charlottenburg, the exhibition “FACING REALITIES” explores the dispositif of allotment gardening in Germany by more than 30 contemporary positions. A 300sqm gardening plot which belonged to a family of policemen for 35 years serves as the starting point for the exploration of the sociotope of the interaction between identity and common understanding of the colonists. The perspectives on this phenomena could hardly be more diverse: More than 30 Berlin-based German and international artists aged between 19 and 59 explore this microcosm by incorporating the legacy of the former owners of the allotment garden and put them indoor and outdoor in the context of their respective medium – whether it be painting, sculpture, assemblage, photography, moving images, animation, performance or dance art. Thus, a polyphonic commentary on our times arises between the tension field of deconstruction of tradition and construction of significance.
