Join us on 09th November from 09am - 10pm in our Berlin ThoughtWorks office (Zimmerstraße 23, 10969, Berlin, directly next to Checkpoint Charlie) for an interactive video/photo based artwork that explores this generational interconnection of time and space as it relates to the fracturing of Germany by the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1963 and the nations eventual reintegration after 1989 when the barrier was demolished. The work from the canadian artist Graham Smith focuses on both the global experience of the passage of "meta time" as defined by 30 year generational periods as well as the more immediate, personal movement of the physical body through space that defines the human experience of time "real space".
"Übergang" is designed to convey a rich, complex impression of the enormous physical and geopolitical transformations the area around the wall has undergone and is going through, allowing people the ability to literally walk in and out of time periods by using their body as an input device. The piece aims to create an exhibition environment that is alive for viewers, reacting to the movement of the people exploring it, taking the static images from the past and transforming them into a complex vista of the currently unnamed era that is still being defined.
The entrance is free.
We’re looking forward to welcoming you on the 9th.
