The hygiene concept of the events of GG3 contains the current requirements of the Berlin hygiene regulation.
Chair with masks (T.A.)
In the following we will explain our hygiene concept, which we applied for the first time at our anniversary exhibition “Art of Sustainability” on September 4 – October 2, 2020 after the lockdown of our analogous exhibition operation.
Those who feel ill or show symptoms should refrain from participating. Participants from risk areas as defined by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) can only participate if they present a current negative COVID-19 test.
The temporary registration of the guests before entering allows a follow-up. We collect the data on individual registration forms to ensure data protection. If, despite the hygiene concept, an infection is discovered afterwards, all participants will be informed immediately. After four weeks we destroy the analog registration forms.
We limit the number of guests who can stay in the rooms at the same time to seven people plus supervision. Before entering, the guests are given one of the available objects, which they return when leaving.
For our events such as vernissage, performance, workshop, lecture, artist talk, finissage the entrance is only possible after online registration within the registered time window.
There are sufficient disinfectant dispensers available in our rooms and at the entrance. Physical contact, such as a handshake, is avoided. Wearing a mouth-nose protection is mandatory.
The guests should be 1,5m decent to each other.
During lectures the distance between speakers and participants should be at least 2m.
For gallery visits, we have placed green and red arrows on the floor to reduce the amount of movement. Nobody should stay in the small corridor.
Mask duties in the gallery
Visitors to the gallery and lectures must wear masks.
Support on site
The gallery and lecture management makes sure that the hygiene concept and hygiene regulations are observed.
The windows are continuously ventilated crossways. We continuously monitor the CO2 content of the room air. If the CO2 value rises above 1000ppm, the door is opened until the value returns to normal. From 1200 ppm the warning tone is sounded. Please pay attention to the display of the device.
The Corona pandemic demands our attention. But the other existential issue, climate change, is still important. Our main question is, “What do we learn from the current Corona affliction to avoid the climate crisis?” We use the term crisis instead of change, because change sounds too soft and manageable.
Both crises have in common, as one cause, strong global mobility. Another is our lifestyle and our plundering of resources. The threat is different. With Corona it is acute. The state is reacting strongly, following the advice of science. Epidemiologist (german): At Corona we have seen what it looks like when a crisis is taken seriously. In contrast, the climate crisis poses a particular threat to future generations. This threat will soon no longer be kept in check by acute measures. The state is reacting insufficiently and not following the science.
What do we learn from this, what do we change? With Corona, the home office functions as a substitute for travel, and closed shops limit our consumption. This has advantages for coping with the climate crisis as these measures also reduce CO2 emissions.
We do not know what good habits will remain post-Corona to counter the climate crisis. The new bike paths on the streets of Berlin are here to stay. That is not enough though, society must not leave it at that. Scientists are proposing an intergenerational “climate-corona treaty (german)” that is based on reason and the principle of social justice.
We see Corona as a global pandemic which, like the climate crisis, is forcing us to far-reaching changes in behaviour. We no longer want to submit to our fate, we want to shape it!
We show works by 14 international artists with object, sculpture, installation, photo, painting, drawing, printmaking, video, performance, reading.
Since we limit the number of guests, we invite you to participate in the vernissage, lecture and finissage via lifestream from home. You will find the links to click and look in your browser in our program. All in German language.
Since the Corona crisis still requires restrictions, we are adapting the exhibition organization and the program according to our hygiene concept. We are planning analog and online offers here in the program for
Vernissage, performance, workshop, lecture, artist talk and finissage .
The live performance is cancelled due to corona-related travel restrictions. We show the video of the performance here online.
Video 6:04min. Six feet, or 1.82 meters, is the safety measure in these coronavirus times. Mark Fisher writes in Capitalist Realism: “The pandemic of mental anguish that plagues our time cannot be adequately understood, or cured, when viewed as a private problem suffered by damaged individuals.” Can dealing with a situation of this kind by stemming sociality offer us a moment of reflection on it? To date we are divided and ruled by decrees that speak of distances and demands, designed to regulate our daily life in order to allow us a timely escape from this crisis.
We work together to develop solutions to protect ourselves from the coronavirus during the cold season and save energy in the process. Moderated by Tom Albrecht. With introduction to the topic. In German.
We would like to invite you to participate in the lecture with a dialogic lifestream. You can find the link here at 18:45.
Artists talk Fri. Nov. 20., 7 p.m.
Artists of the exhibition talk to guests about their works. Moderated by Alexa Helbig. We would like to invite you to participate in the lecture with dialogic lifestream. You can find the link at 18:45 here.
