There Is Fiction in the Space Between presents eleven outstanding positions of the international art scene in Berlin. Using a variety of media, styles and approaches, the artists address current social issues. The works by William Engelen, Fehras Publishing Practices, Nina Fischer & Maroan el Sani, Jean-Pascal Flavien, Eva Grubinger, Hanne Lippard, Antonia Low, Dafna Maimon & Ethan Hayes-Chute, Emeka Ogboh, Peles Empire and Sophie Reinhold cover a wide range of topics and artistic practices. The works introduced here are representative of the working methods of the artists and reflect current debates in the art field. They stand out due to their critical view of the present and examine, for example, architecture, specific places and collective experiences. With research-based projects historical references are made usable for the present and social conditions are depicted. The works presented reflect various aesthetic uses of form as well as transformative processes and provide insights into the diverse art production in Berlin.
