Mirror of Alterity

Refugees and the Fear of the Other. Contemporary art from Middle and Eastern Europe. What has been a scandal in Bratislava – now to see in Berlin!

Europe has become a refuge for the disregarded and persecuted people in the regions of war and conflict all over the world. The whole of Europe? No, a big part of European populations is frightened by strangers and refuses to welcome refugees. The fear of the unknown stirs up emotions and partly evokes xenophobic affects. Especially in Eastern parts of Europe, a majority of the populations balk at the reception of refugees – while their governments make use of this tense atmosphere by strengthening an increasingly populist and authoritarian style of politics.

Rohkunstbau XXII - Between the Worlds

ROHKUNSTBAU XXII takes up a statement made by Kofi Annan, the former General Secretary of the UN: “There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. The title Zwischen den Welten – Between the Worlds relates firstly, at a metaphorical level, to the transitional phase from childhood and youth to adulthood, a period of incubation which seems to be prolonged more and more these days as part of an “infantilisation of society”.

XXI. Rohkunstbau - Apokalypse

From June 21, 2015 till September 6, 2015 Rohkunstbau presents its twenty-first edition. Themed “apocalypse” and set against the historic backdrop of Schloss Roskow in the District of Potsdam-Mittelmark, the exhibition presents eleven artists from eight nations.
