Haus am Waldsee: now at Bikini Berlin
Budapester Strasse 46, 10787 Berlin

In the period from July 20, 2017, to June 15, 2018, Haus am Waldsee will remain visible as a museum shop at Bikini Berlin. During the refurbishment and extension of the exhibition house in Zehlendorf we will present shop window exhibitions, artist talks and book launches, while selling catalogues, books and small art objects, on the roof terrace at Zoologischer Garten.

We begin by introducing the musician and visual artist Christiane Seiffert, who shows postcard-sized photographs until September 9. For more than 30 years the Berlin-based Seiffert has collected picture postcards – into which she pours her body and soul. She re-enacts architecture, plants and paintings in expressive poses, employing fabrics, toys and other materials readily available at home. Only at the point of perfect conformity of feelings and objects does she operate the shutter release. Seiffert attempts to interpret and translate the core statement of a postcard into a performative body image. Presented here as diptychs, the works, just like those by Cindy Sherman or Erwin Wurm, are firmly based on a subtle, self-deprecating humour.
