It's Saturday night and e0n.20 comes to the surroundings of Reinickendorf to humbly support this collective of artists who together make up the festival called the lost art festival.
Since I personally wrote to offer our support I felt a great welcome. This is the first year they are holding this festival, although they had previously done so through a project in 2017.
The previously chosen venue? The Willner Brewery. One of the last places for artists in the centre of Berlin.Back in 2012, the former brewery supported the artistic landscape of Berlin, but unfortunately it ended up in the hands of investors in the real estate market of the new Berlin and had to close down. Before the era of the former cultural monument came to an end, Berlin artists decided to pay one last tribute to the brewery and what it symbolized for the city:a non-stop 48-HOUR ART FESTIVAL.
This year, 2021, after (hopefully) passing a global pandemic and after a long search for a new location, 80 artists curated by Clara Sauer are gathering in one space to convert the premises of the 100-year-old former electricity transformer station. This new cosmos also includes the basement catacombs, which are filled with light and soundscapes, in the form of an art gallery for another 48 hours.
This unprecedented museum, full of dark rooms will enlighten everyone who comes this weekend, offering a great selection of the best ambient lights, performances, installations that create sensations and live soundscapes that resonate in-urban and natural environments, the vision of the artists that make it up shouting again that we do not turn off. We are not alone. We must talk to each other and make the darkness a world of phosphorescence, no faces, no poses, just feeling and walking freely through this 6000m2 labyrinth. We are all of us. We are all in constant transformation.Sharing beings, in the industrial and techno/logical space.
Clara Sauer has been curating immersive exhibitions in Berlin since 2016.We want to contribute that we at e0n.20 really like this concept that stands out in this festival. And I endorse it: while crowded art events often give the impression that it's more about "seeing and being seen", at "The Dark Rooms" visitors are allowed to give themselves completely to the art, at their own pace and with the necessary calmness for everyone.
Take your time. As much time as you need.
The labels participating in this festival are OSTGUT and the interesting label BIPOLAR which we highlight for its multiple collaborations.
Some of the 80 selected artists:
WIEBKE MARIA WACHMANN
All of them participate in this industrial environment, in permanent debate between visual arts and sound creation. New romantics without paper schedules or maps. Underground cinema and other things you should know about this festival with good values.
Tomorrow Sunday will be the last day to take advantage of it.
Thanks to the organization for allowing us to take part in our own way. Camera in hand and letters flying. We would like to explain that when we created e0n.20 there at the beginning of the pandemic we also wanted to give some light to our fellow artists, that's why we called up about 100 artists and here we are. Coming and going in the course of life.
