Program for Members Summer – Fall 2019


July 18, 2019, 5 pm 
Studio visit Tomás Saraceno


The Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno (*1973 in Tucumán) combines architecture, natural sciences, astrophysics and technology in his work, which he conceives as a form of ongoing research. He creates floating sculptures, interactive installations, and develops collaborative projects that propose new and sustainable ways to inhabit and perceive the environment. Central in his oeuvre are works that explore the social structures of spiders and the filigree spiderwebs. Saraceno teaches in institutions worldwide and was head of the Institute for Architecture-related Art (IAK) at the Technical University of Braunschweig from 2014 to 2016. In 2009 he was awarded the prestigious Alexander Calder Prize. Most recently, his works have been shwon at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2018); The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2012); Academy of Arts Berlin (2010); Venice Biennial (2009), amongst others.
Since 2012, the impressive studio of Saraceno is located Berlin. We will visit this exciting place together, where we will gain insights into the artistic practice of Tomás Saracenos complex and multifaceted work.

Candice Breitz at n.b.k. – Exhibition tour and talk


From September 12 to October 25, 2019, the Neue Berliner Kunstverein is showing a solo exhibition with Candice Breitz (*1972 in Johannesburg). The South African artist is especially known for her video installations. The conditions for empathy with our fellow human beings in a media-saturated global culture, questions of nationality, gender and religion as well as the growing influence of mainstream media play an important role in Breitz's oeuvre. Her work received the Prix International d'Art Contemporain of the Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco (2007) and her works habe been shown in solo exhibitions at Boston Museum of Fine Arts (2018); Venice Biennial (2017); KOW Berlin (2017); Stuttgart Art Museum (2016); South African National Gallery, Cape Town (2012); Kunsthaus Bregenz (2010), amongst others.
On the occasion of her solo exhibition at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Candice Breitz will give a tour exclusively for members of the n.b.k. and engage in conversation with the participants.

November 2019 – DATE TBC
Studio Visit John Bock


In his works, John Bock (*1965 in Gribbohm) brings together live actions, drawings, sculptures, installations, film sets, and film projections to create a Gesamtkunstwerk. His work is built on a darkly tinted humor, which expresses itself not least on a linguistic level by means of neologisms, repetitions, onomatopoeia, and surprising language combinations. Bock‘s main concern is the dissolution of boundaries in art, whether as to the abolition of genre boundaries and of static work concepts or as to the relationship between recipient and artist. In 2019, John Bock has developed a new project for Neuer Berliner Kunstverein that intermeshes elements of installation, film, and performance in four different spaces. Solo exhibitions include (selection): The Contemporary Austin (2017); La Panacée, Montpellier (2017); Berlinische Galerie, Berlin (2017); Museum of the Moving Image, New York (2016); Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn (2013); REDCAT, Los Angeles (2008).
We will visit the studio of the artist and talk with him about his work and his artistic practice.

In German language, for more information please see German version of this page.

Participants: 15 persons max.
Venue: announced after registration
