WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
Curated by Ellen Blumenstein with a contribution by Filipa Ramos
Venue: KW Basis, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, Germany
OPENING: Tuesday, 15.9.15, 18–22 h
In WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, 20 Berlin-based and international artists look at spatial fictions that exemplify our idea of the “good” life. The works originate from the phantasm of the jungle, which we set against our standardized way of life as a place of pristine rampancy. From various perspectives, the participating artists relate themselves to the human wishful fantasies and fears linked to concrete or imaginary spaces – and find images and forms of their own for the gaping and productive chasms they find there.
