Step Out of the Strange Light

n.b.k. Berlin Vol. 13 – Step Out of the Strange Light

Step Out of the Strange Light presents artists who have been awarded the Berlin Senate’s work stipends in the visual arts. At the heart of many of the contributions is an examination of real and imagined places, shaped both by ideological implications and collective practices. Several artists in the exhibition use archives and institutional forms of remembering as a starting point to uncover shortcomings and critically intervene in existing mechanisms of power.A common aspect is the impulse to reveal and question structures that are inscribed in, yet often hidden behind, forms of emergence and transformation of the social condition.

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Step Out of the Strange Light.

The publication can be purchased at local bookshops, via the website of Buchhandlung Walther König, and at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Members of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein can buy the book at n.b.k. for the special price of 15.00 Euro.
