HOLDING WHAT CAN’T BE HELD

Group exhibition – Boise, Idaho * September 2019

The Feeling Body invites artists on a Snake River Alliance sponsored tour of the nuclear radioactive clean-up sites at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), located in Idaho’s Arco desert on the aboriginal lands of the Shoshone-Bannock tribes. After experiencing the site, artists meet periodically and engage in a workshop setting, encouraging unexpected collaborations while deepening individual experiences of this complex site. Holding What Can’t Be Held hopes to evoke new ways of seeing the nuclear waste in our backyard.

HIER&JETZT: CONNECTIONS

HIER & JETZT: Connections is an exchange and residency program for artists in exile.

We collaborate and exchange ideas on a collegial and informal basis and thus create a platform for art, learning and communication. We define exile as the involuntary loss of one’s social context and working environment in the country of origin for an uncertain period of time. Our structure supports the arrival and artistic production of those who recently came to Berlin. With help of our cross-cultural network we organize workshops, artist talks, film screenings, open studios and exhibitions – and sometimes we just have a coffee on the premises of B.L.O. Ateliers. We invite experts and the public to share new social footholds and artistic incentives with people from, among others, Syria, Iran, Iraq and Turkey.

The initiative was launched in 2017 by artists of B.L.O. Ateliers in Berlin-Lichtenberg and is funded by Bezirksamt Lichtenberg, Amt für Weiterbildung und Kultur
Artistic direction: Mika Clemens, Christa Fülbier, Irina Novarese.
