PROMETHEUS DELIVERED

01.09.2017, Berlin | Haus am Lützowplatz in Berlin shows the first institutional solo exhibition of the Austrian artist Thomas Feuerstein (* 1968). The exhibition PROMETHEUS DELIVERED will open on September 13, 2017, at 7 p.m. The Vienna-based artist is working at the interface of applied and theoretical science and combines epistemes from philosophy, art history and literature with biotechnology, economics and politics to an artistic narrative that raises questions about existential basic parameters and the origin of life.

Daria Martin: A Hunger Artist

23.08.2017, Berlin | As partner of Berlin Art Week 2017, the Ernst Schering Foundation will open the exhibition "A Hunger Artist" by London-based artist Daria Martin on September 13, 2017, 6-9 p.m. Daria Martin's new film is a complex, multi-layered artwork at the intersection of literature, psychology and science that experimentally adapts the modernist masterpiece “A Hunger Artist” by Franz Kafka (1924). Published in Kafka’s last days, the story is an ambiguous allegory about a public performer who fasts for weeks to the adulation of hundreds until he is left to perform for unappreciative spectators, and, ultimately, to barely please only himself, unto death.

Acousmatic Lecture Series

26.06.2017, Berlin | The Acousmatic Lecture Series in Berlin presents a program of unconventional interdisciplinary lectures: Listeners engage solely with the abstract verbal and acoustic information of the speaker’s voice and thus are confronted with the act of listening itself. The series kicks off on July 6, 2017, at 7 p.m., with a talk by Prof. Sabeth Buchmann. Additional lectures take place on July 13 (Prof. Dr. Birgit Schneider), September 14 (Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Rheinberger), October 19 (Dr. Alex Arteaga), all at 7 p.m., and October 5, 2017 (Prof. Dr. Markus Gabriel), 5:30 p.m. at the Errant Sound Project Space.

Anne Imhof at the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia

26.04.2017, Berlin | Anne Imhof designed the German Pavilion for the 57th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennial, “Viva Arte Viva.” She has developed a performance specifically for the space of the German Pavilion, which inquires into how the new technological and economic conditions affect and act on human beings. In her performances, Imhof reflects on how the optimized and capitalized body is (co-)constituted through the media. Imhof thus addresses a key question at the interface of biology, technology, and art, which is also at the heart of many projects of the Ernst Schering Foundation. The German Pavilion is curated by Susanne Pfeffer.

MitMachMusik - One year music lessons for refugees

21.12.2016, Berlin | Since January 2016, the association MitMachMusik has offered music lessons at several collective accommodation centers for refugees in Berlin and Potsdam. Twice a week, professional musicians visit the centers to make music with refugee children and teenagers: small children can participate in singing and dancing groups, while older children and teenagers can play on borrowed instruments. Especially talented children and teenagers can use the instruments for independent practice; they also receive individual lessons once a week in addition to the ensembles. Local children from the neighborhood are also invited to participate in the ensembles and lessons.
