Mapping Contemporary Concerns


MCC #3 “architectures” of…
sound | memory | belonging | utopia | color
Curated talk on keywords: architecture, synesthesia, photography, memory, painting, participatory art, environment, perception/senses, sound art, installation

After sommer pause, berlinerpool’s program of talks re-launches for its autumn edition. For the next term, mapping contemporary concerns (MCC) focuses on architecture.

In our glossary of terms, architecture belongs to the “Material & Sources” section. Therefore, we are interested in the functional, technical, social, environmental, aesthetic and conceptual considerations reflected by the use of architecture through the orchestration of form, space and ambience as raw materials.

MCC #3 invites you to join a Wednesday synesthetic ride through a variety of first-person projects stretching the notion of architecture in its hybridizations with sound, memory, belonging, utopia, color (and a very long etcetera).

Topics and guests for the panel:

Architecture of sound
Jarii van Gohl (Sound SLKTR)  – Soundkalendar

Architecture of memory
Norbert Wiesneth – Kaliningrad series

Architecture of belonging
Daniel AlmgrenRecén – Near that place

Architecture of utopia
Joanne Pouzenc & Philine Schneider (Collage Lab) – Post + Capitalist City

Architecture of color
Kyung-Lae Oak – Colors of Berlin (Project realized during residency at ZK/U Berlin)




About Mapping Contemporary Concerns:

Mapping Contemporary Concerns is a methodology that surpasses berlinerpool. It was born from the need to discuss current issues that are present in the berlin art context and to find a response in the art practice of berlinerpool members.

MCC is a means for the berlinerpool archive to bring these current topics to the stage in the form of open discussions by inviting outside professionals and members of our network. The panel meet and discuss a central topic – often aligned or in the framework of other events hosted by the city, triggered by spontaneous visits of significant actors / thinkers / knowledge carriers in the art and cultural fields. The system of keywords is supporting the semantic axis of these visits.

With this format berlinerpool arts network & mobile archive aims to raise the question of whether we can speak of a potential “vocabulary” inherent to Berlin’s art production, in terms of medium, approaches, subjects, materials or sources the makers are dealing with and driven by.

Being part of ARCHIVE IT – talks, this latest format developed by berlinerpool is committed to the sharing, collecting. connecting, exchanging and contextualizing of visions and knowledge (In symmetry of triple nature of berlinerpool as a Database, Network and Platform for project development.)

Conceptualized and curated by Paz Ponce for berlinerpool arts network | mobile archive
