The Watch – Berlin 2022

A trace from the border apparatus during the division of the city, the former GDR watchtower on Schlesischer Busch has a long tradition of cultural and artistic production ever since Reunification. Under the care of Flutgraben e.V. since 2004, the building has hosted several exhibitions, talks, screenings, and residencies.
The Watch consists of a group of artists and cultural producers working on a voluntary basis. Every year this group decides on the thematic content, formats, and programming of the watchtower either through direct invitations or open calls.
The Watch is currently Jean-Ulrick Désert, Franziska Koenig-Paratore, Dominique Hurth, Irina Novarese and Jo Zahn. Coming from the fields of theatre, scenography, visual arts, writing, performance and curating, an interdisciplinary and collaborative practice is at the core of The Watch informed by feminist, queer and non-hegemonic strategies.

about

Like picking up one of the card-based method Oblique Strategies, Over One Hundred Worthwhile Dilemmas, created by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt*, Irina Novarese’s work starts from affinity-encounters on themes in which she navigates, collecting data and composing her own assortment of associations. From this compilation, the research becomes a contour, a physical shape: multimedia Installations composed by drawings, videos, objects, and artist’s books.

Most of the site specific works are influenced by the urban space and the multiple contexts that grow within. In her practice she yearns and looks for other people to exchange Ideas, explore concepts, discover places. Presently some of the works based on reciprocity are deeply related to the relationship between urbanity and the use and creation of language, seen primarily as poetical infrastructure.
Furthermore is participation a basic element for numerous projects through which she aims to create art-communities based on contributions, knowledge, and common interests.

A*BOUT

* since 2011

A*BOUT – ARTIST GROUP
We got to know each other during the MA program “Art in Context” at the UdK Berlin. Our own biographical and parallel interests in artistic forms such as situative installations and process-oriented, project-based work encouraged us to develop participatory and interdisciplinary projects. One of these included the project Hydromemories, which has been presented in four exhibitions in Europe and Venezuela.

MAPPING IT OUT

A map can be described as a two dimensional interpretative representation of an area. Nevertheless the map stands for a reading of existing spaces in which people are moving toward, following routes, necessities and needs, desires and thoughts. MAPPING IT OUT is a participative project. A map of La Havana after the point of view and the experiences of the people: a representation of what for me means reality.

LANDOLOGY. GLIMPSES OF A DIVERSITIES’S POLITIC.

For this series of works I employed a slow and meticulous process of active but nevertheless approximate mapping of a city’s actual existing systems and dynamics. In its core the project surveys urban structures as places that oscillate between desire and repulsion, between basic needs/necessities and the ultra-de-luxe, in which a city’s accelerated ow is perceived as the last place of the social.

WE ARE THE PLAGUE

A dystopic intuition on new geographies, this installation follows a project about water resources and provisions, specifically after the observation of water reservoirs in California, where the waters are protected from the sun rays through black plastic spheres. Not really the ideal representational objects for an ecological environment.

SHADOWBOXING

A project of Bastian Aarler & Irina Novarese

Shadowboxing is an exercise used in training, especially, as the name implies, in boxing. It is used mainly to hone the muscles and reflexes. In shadowboxing, a sole participant throws punches at an imaginary opponent. The name was coined because boxers would practice by using their own shadows or a mirror as a sparring partner. An interesting paradox arrises from the notion of a fight against oneself, as it is impossible to win or lose the match, the only certain result being that one will tire oneself out. Incidentally, in psychology shadowboxing refers to the process of overcoming a negative self-image which, for example, prevents one from achieving success.

AAA THE DESERT SERIES

AAA The Desert Series is a compilation of works, realized between 2012 and 2014, and related to the construction of fictional territories starting from existing ones. Drawings, installations, printed works, collages and artist’s books compose a narration on unbounded landscapes coming out from the relation between micro and macro visual elements.

HOW TO LIE WITH MAPS

HOW TO LIE WITH MAPS is a series of installations made with black aluminum foil stripes, which build nets-like maps. The work is inspired by the same-named book of Marc Monmonier and on the possibility to create a plausible territory from the perception of an existing one.
