LUFT - fair is in the air

GG3 @ fair is in the air LUFT

GG3 @ fair is in the air. At our booth we show works of our artists Tom Albrecht, Maria Korporal, Mariel Gottwick and Stephan Groß.

Eighteen initiatives from The Hague, Limerick, Stockholm, Riga, Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Berlin will present their spaces and organizations as well as selected artworks at their booths to showcase their activities and launch new collaborations.

ARNE (Artist-Run Network Europe) aims to strengthen the self-organized artistic sector in Europe, focusing on local and international collaboration, and to provide a simple information framework for artists and art students, in particular through a collaborative online platform, the Artist-Run Resource Centre (ARRC).

Not only in the artist-run sector, but in art in general, the public often feels excluded from the art world, and specifically the activities of artist-run “underground” spaces can be seen as niche and inaccessible. In a multi-layered format, the project bridges the gap between European cultures, professions, and artists at different stages of their careers. It promotes international cooperation and mutual respect, and highlights the importance of the artist-driven movement with its freedom for experimental and innovative ideas.

CRISISFEST

Christmas happiness (C TA) Christmas in crisis

Christmas Happiness (C GG3)

People are feeling the climate crisis more and more, the war, the rising energy prices. That’s when it’s important to celebrate Christmas anyway. How do we do that, what do we change?

1.12.-15.12 2022
A cooperative exhibition of Group Global 3000 with WerkStadt Neukölln.

FIVE TO TWELVE

Exhibition 6.11.- 4.12.2022

We five artists* of the Group Global 3000 show our artistic positions on the sustainability of society. This time not in Kreuzberg, but in green Hellersdorf: Tom Albrecht, Mariel Gottwick, Stephan Groß, Alexa Helbig-Tewes, Maria Korporal

“Since 2013, the artist initiative Group Global 3000 has been presenting exhibitions that address pressing issues of environmental sustainability. Under the title “5vor12” the group is now a guest in the project space mp43. Using a variety of artistic media, she seeks an expression of the urgency to respond to the fundamental upheavals that have long been noticeably damaging life on our planet, but soon threaten to escalate fully. Five positions reflect the trepidation, but also the opportunities, of what feels like five minutes left to act.

In a survey, Tom Albrecht calls on the visitors to put their behavior in the face of the crisis into a schema with which the desire and reality of action are to be modeled. To this end, the “Transformation” object draws attention to the necessity of the energy turnaround and at the same time serves as a tribute to the technical inventiveness of mankind.

Mariel Gottwick’s installation “… and if they burn, I can’t help it.” shows insects in a light object and in photographs. In a juxtaposition of a distanced and a close-up perspective, our complex fellow creatures are rehabilitated from their status as vanishing points of discontent projections. They deserve respect not only because they help save life on Earth, but because they are a fascinating part of it.

Stephan Groß is also concerned with the duty of care for all living things. His experimental film “BIS NICHTS MEHR ÜBRIG IST” shows a systematic breakdown in words and sounds until there is literally nothing left. Five words and Five sounds subjected to an alarming successive clear-cutting as a paraphrase of overexploitation, exploitation, extinction and disappearance.

Alexa Helbig’s large-scale mixed media work “The Full Catastrophe” depicts an expressive abstract scene around a dead animal. The titular expression, originally a movie quote, entered common parlance and today also serves as a vehicle for the idea of relentless contemplation and acceptance of even the worst crises as a coping strategy.

Maria Korporal’s interactive multimedia installation “Emergency Call Center”, which consists of several videos in different formats, deals with extreme climatological events. A central element of the work is a telephone that can be listened to and answered, prompting people to respond to the Earth’s distress call.

What the works have in common is the question: Can it be that we can only win the race against time if we pause and give more space to reflection?

Stephan Groß”
