Calling all artists, architects, curators, or theoreticians–– do you have ideas regarding new forms of public monuments that you’d like to share? Here’s your chance.
As one element of the international group exhibition Open Monument at Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien, running from May 3 to Jun. 16, an online platform of your ideas will be open for submissions. This unique exhibition explores multimedia and transformative historic monuments through the platform THINKABOUTSPACE, alongside 10 international artists’ works in the gallery space–– from installation to documentation of architectural design. Even walking tours through Berlin will be conducted by various residents showing their special, hidden places–– their personal monuments.
The online platform THINKABOUTSPACE will include everything from image, text, sound, video, and architectural models referring to possible ideas for a new historic monument. The stipulations are almost none, the possibilities endless. Material gathered for THINKABOUTSPACE will be infused in the exhibition and projected alongside the works of Open Monument. The deadline for submissions is Apr. 20 and contributions can be nominal or anonymous. Send material to email@example.com with the subject line: “proposal for thinkaboutspace”
