member of the network since 2012
Team researcher of the Archive and Videoteque September 2013 – 2017
Designer of conceptual & spatial dramaturgies to interact with the Archive 

berlinerpool was a non-for-profit platform for artists, curators, art managers and spaces of Berlin supported by a physical documentation archive of its members, taking the shape of a research center on Berlin-based art. By structuring, saving and contextualizing information, berlinerpool took a mediating position between individuals, making their work and ideas accessible to specific/professional and wider audiences.

With a collaborative approach, berlinerpool explored the interdependencies implicit in the process of making culture at large, bringing people closer by sharing resources, exchanging knowledge, and mapping contemporary concerns. With this aim, berlinerpool’s public program of talks, workshops and project-based residencies responds to the fields of archiving practices, curating, arts management and digital humanities, understanding on-going research as the axis to actively engage and mobilize people, projects and ideas through local and international cooperation.

berlinerpool team: Andrzej Raszyk, Sasha Pronina, Paz Ponce
archive host venues: NON Gallery, Galerie Wedding, berlin sessions residency

* Founded in 2005 by Sancer Vardarman, berlinerpool came into being as an MA Thesis Project for “Art in Context” (UDK), understanding networking as a performative artistic practice.
