30 years Hohenschönhausen

30 portraits from a new city

28. August - 22. December 2015


Next to the Museum Lichtenberg’s presentation about the now 30-years-long history of the city quarter Höhenschönhausen and its formation, also the studio im HOCHHAUS deals with this and other large-scale housing estates (Großsiedlungen). The second exhibition also delivers insight into future structure and philosophy of the new spaces.

The previous exhibition by Holger Biermann is being compacted in one room with new insight and outlook on the history of Neu-Hohenschönhausen.

Newly added is an installation by Max Sudhues, who focuses on architecture, model, and man by simple means.

Max Sudhues lays his interest on combination of photographies, video-, slide-, and overhead projections with daily material in often site specific installations. The exploration of spatial and environmental possibilities, of human (and-man made) inner and outer worlds, of allegories of nature that can change from poetic to threatening at lightning speed, and the vague, hardly to circumstantiate field between dream and nightmare are in the center of Max Sudhues’ work.

Furthermore studio im HOCHHAUS will from now on use a fourth room for the presentation of videos. The starting programme is a compilation of artist videos that were created from 2002 until 2007 in the Berlin Gropiusstadt in the framework of Pilotprojekt Gropiusstadt by Birgit Anna Schumacher and Uwe Jonas. The so diverse impressions of a large-scale housing estate (Großsiedlung) inWest-Berlin , which celebrated its 50-years-jubilee in 2012, want to initiate to think about the topic of large-scale housing estate (Großsiedlungen).

With videos by: Wolfgang Aichner, Martin Brand, Andreas Bunte, Annette Gödde/Arnold von Wedemeyer, Nicoline van Harskamp, Rolf Kirsch, Köbberling/Kaltwasser, Daniel Silver, ststs, Albert Weis a.o.
