After a succesful and exciting beginning in January, the cycle ARTIST TALK – Artistic Positions in Dialogue continues on 25th and 26th of May. On every 4th weekend of each month, artists or artist collectives from Germany will meet with fellow artists who recently arrived in Berlin, at the international cu ltural centre Ulme35 (Ulme 35 – Raum für Kunst, Kultur & Begegnung). During an informal talk in the salon of the Ulme35 on Friday evening, they will talk about their artistic work, their background and their work environment. In a workshop on Saturday afternoon the invited artists will meet the attendees in a new experimental dialogue field. Together they will develop an artistic format, a joint picture, a performance, a manifesto, a film… The formats will not be pre-defined; we want the artists to surprise us on each occasion.
At the 4th ARTIST TALK we have invited the young Syrian artist Rula Ali and the Berlin based artist Pia Lanzinger. The work of Rula Ali takes a critical view of political, social and cultural issues, using research to build the connection between the materials and the concept, in a way which gives background about the history of this materials connected with the idea itself. Sometimes she does not think about the way in which she wants to express her ideas, like how the artwork will end up (installation, videos, sculpture etc) but what finally comes to her mind. Pia Lanzinger work is mainly grounded in public places. Her intention is to realize discrepances and sites of fracture for exploring experiments in communication. The artist’s ambition is an altered view apon the conditions of everyday living. In doing so new creative spaces are released, which normally are being ignored.
