Stefan Panhans – Too much change is not enough
January 19 – March 16 2014, prolonged to March 23th
Applying the philosophical theorems of Gilles Deleuze, the works of Panhans offer an impressive investigation into the relationship of image and time, motion and time as well as body and memory. He successfully connects philosophical questions with the psychology of the present.
On the one hand he reveals the identity-establishing and increasingly absurd influences on our thoroughly digitised consumer society, while on the other hand he seems to ask with Deleuze, à propos Henri Bergson (Matière et Mémoire, 1896): “Does this mean that [...] cinema is only the projection, the reproduction of a constant, universal illusion? As though we had always had cinema without realising it?”
"Too much change is not enough" focuses on Panhans videoworks. It is his first institutional solo exhibition in Berlin.

Ola Kolehmainen – Geometric Light
In an Installation by Sauerbruch Hutton
April 05 to May 17, 2014
The Finnish photo artist Ola Kolehmainen (b. 1964, lives and works in Berlin) traces the great architects and monuments of art history in his work. Alvar Aalto, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Gehry, Hutton Sauerbruch or even the cathedral of Siena or the Hagia Sophia serve him as the starting point of reflecting on preeminent buildings and architects as well as their role in art history and in his own works.
