Instinct#12 An AIDS Walkthrough
April 6th–16th 2023

"An AIDS Walkthrough" is an exhibition that brings together Berlin-based contemporary artists and international art practitioners and researchers to facilitate an intergenerational dialogue on the impacts of HIV/AIDS on society. This two-week-long art show will take place in April 2023 at Village, a queer community and cultural center located in Berlin. The exhibition seeks to address important questions, such as how to pass on and honor the memory of a traumatic period in our history, how to show hope for the end of the pandemic with treatments that work, and how to ensure that we do not forget that the fight is not over, especially for our friends who live in countries where prevention and treatment are non-existent. To articulate a dialogue between artists and visitors, the exhibition is divided into three groups that explore the various dimensions of the disease. The first group, "Before 1996," features works that examine the devastating impact of AIDS on the LGBTQ+ community and the inadequate response of the healthcare system to the crisis. The second group, "1996 to the present," showcases works that celebrate the advances in medical treatments and the significant improvements in the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS. The third group, "Today," focuses on the current challenges and opportunities in the ongoing fight against HIV/AIDS and highlights the need for continued research, funding, and political will to make HIV treatment and prevention accessible to all who need it.

Judy Dunaway (b. 1964, Mississippi)

Opening: May 5, 2022 at 7 PM
Duration: May 6 – September 12 

“Ocaña. Der Engel, der in der Qual singt” is the first exhibition in Germany about Andalusian artist José Pérez Ocaña (1947-1983). The show focuses on his stay in Berlin, when he presented the documentary “Ocaña, Retrat Intermitent” (“Ocaña, Intermittent Portrait”) at the 1979 film festival. Ocaña created unapologetic queer art during the Spanish political transition of the 1970s. With his colorful paintings, cross-dressing performances and activism, he is an example of overcoming and an inspiration for future generations.

The exhibition is curated by Samuel Perea-Díaz und Pepe Sánchez-Molero.
With friendly support from the Embassy of Spain in Germany.

With the return to exhibitions live and in person, SoundsAbout contemplates the reappearance of a present presence. In the sudden actuality of this moment, we explore the perspectives and relations provided by regained temporalities, intimate relations and shared gazes. At this time a peculiar nostalgia emerges, a desire for something outside of our comprehension, something we cannot grasp or perhaps never existed. Presence is tempered in equal parts hindsight and anticipation. With this series of four sounding installations, we seek to speak in the tension of the present tense, to invest in the possibility of being re-bound to each other, to objects, materials, sonorities, moments, ideas, and spaces. How will this time be remembered, and how long will it last? We already miss the now.

“Rhythmic Encounters: A Sonic Manifesto on Urban Space and Architecture” (2021)
Architektūros fondas and The Lithuanian Union of Architects

The book ‘Regeneration [and its discontents]’ is a continuation and expansion of the discussion series of the same name. During the series (curated by Tautvydas Urbelis, Noah Brehmer and Miglė Babickaitė) the concept of ‘regeneration’ became a tool to explore multifaceted interaction between city, culture, art and politics. Resisting the temptation to reduce the city’s complexity into the binary opposition of ‘us’ vs ‘them’, specialists from different disciplines introduced strategies for activating positive urban and architectural development through art, aesthetics and sound. The talks and accompanying events showed that ‘regeneration’ escapes boundaries of one discipline and is a promising lens to think about different urban futures.Inspired and guided by these efforts, the book ‘Regeneration [and its Discontents]’ expanded some of the key ideas of the talk series and looked towards the potential futures of speculative and real urban environments. The image of weeds breaking through concrete articulates the physicalisation of the will to transform in alien environments; to become new, to regenerate. ‘Regeneration [and its discontents]’ are all the collections of the intricate root systems that permeate the modern city, interacting with the material and immaterial (infa)structures. On different scales and from different angles, 6 authors embark on their own journeys through the city.

*Edited by Tautvydas Urbelis and Dovydas Laurinaitis with contributions by Chiara Dorbolò, Hybrid Space Lab (prof. Elizabeth Sikiaridi and prof. Frans Vogelaar), Jay Springett, Jaspar Joseph-Lester, Samuel Perea-Diaz and Banu Çiçek Tülü, and Viktorija Šiaulytė.
