Exclusive participation in the rehearsal of Alexandra Pirici’s project
Aggregate, followed by an artist talk
Aggregate, the first solo exhibition of Alexandra Pirici in Germany, is conceived as a living environment: It forms the framework for over 80 performers, who together with the visitors create a swarm movement in space. It is based on embodied memories that negotiate fragments of the common world heritage, fitting into categories such as life forms, sounds from Earth, cultural achievements, scientific techniques and knowledge, but also inanimate objects and the uncategorizable. In a constant stream of bodies, which includes the visitors of the exhibition, selected common memories belonging to different canons and historical stages emerge and disappear through enactment. Aggregate invites us to experience how we define our identity in a collective.
Alexandra Pirici (b. 1982 in Bucharest) lives and works in Bucharest. Most recently, her projects were shown at, a. o., Berlin Biennale (2016); Tate Modern, London, and Tate Liverpool (2016); Off-Biennale Budapest (2015); Manifesta 10, St. Petersburg (2014); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2014); Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2014); Venice Biennale (2013). In 2015, she received the Excellence Award of the National Dance Center, Bucharest. This year Alexandra Pirici takes part in Skulptur Projekte Münster.
Members of n.b.k. are invited to participate in the rehearsal of
Aggregate and to engage in a conversation with the artist afterwards.
Participants: 15 pers. max.,
registration until August 1, 2017

Berlin Art Week: Opening Reception
Berlin Art Week is a highlight on the contemporary art calendar in the German capital. For the sixth time, the Berlin art world will be hosting exhibition openings, fairs, prize award ceremonies, artist films, and numerous special events during the week. The rich variety of this fall program is made possible by the joint collaboration of institutions, galleries, artist, collectors, and project spaces and draws international attention. In 2017, visitors can expect large-scale exhibitions on established artists such as Monica Monica Bonvicini, Danny Lyon, Willem de Rooij, a retrospective on Harun Farocki, and countless artists from various genres. The fairs will be the focus of attention. While Positions Berlin at the Arena will continue to expand, art berlin (abc art berlin contemporary in collaboration with Art Cologne) will be kicking off a new start for Berlin Art Week.

Monica Bonvicini (*1965) studied at Berlin’s University of the Arts from 1986. Since then, apart from periods in Los Angeles, London and Pasadena, she has lived in the German capital. Over the years, the highly acclaimed artist has developed a pithy visual idiom and a multi-media approach. Her works have already been shown at many international venues.
