Opening on Saturday 1 July 2017 6 pm-9 pm
This exhibition – a cooperation between artists from weißensee kunsthochschule berlin and art history students from Humboldt-University – explores new ways of curating. Out of their democratic exchange arises the formal structure of the exhibition, where every artist is given 4,16 sqm to show her/his artwork. The title HECKE refers to the interplay between two gardens seemingly separated by a hedge, yet actually thriving on the exchange that is taking place at this lively and dynamic border. Over the past six months we have been growing this metaphorical hedge – at times more wild, at others more cultivated.
