Tadashi Kawamata - Berlin Tree Huts
Fri, Oct 9, 2009–Sun, Jan 10, 2010
The Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata creates nests of civil disobedience with his Berlin Tree Huts that spread from the Haus to the trees in the park, while interrogating the architecture of modernity. His "social sculptures" were exhibited at both Documenta 8 and 9, the Venice Biennale and Shanghai. The Gallery-to-go offers a platform for creatively thinking about the exhibitions. Artists' talks and the conference: “Negotiating Difference - Contemporary Chinese Art in the Global Context” (22 - 24.10.) focus on the working conditions for artists and the relationship between the local and global in Chinese contemporary art.
This event is part of the Asia-Pacific Weeks 2009. The Asia-Pacific Weeks are made possible by the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin.
