Rosenstraße 1, 10178 Berlin
Open 18 - 19 March 2023, 12-6pm
A Berlin hotel room as a place of supposed privacy and anonymity in public space becomes the exhibition venue for the group show SUPERIOR COMFORT.
What is public what is private, what is personal what is impersonal? The conceptual starting point of SUPERIOR COMFORT is the exhibition venue itself: a hotel room in the Classik Hotel Alexander Plaza in Berlin-Mitte, rented specifically for the group show. Here, the works of the seven emerging Berlin based artists are exposed to a space that contemplates the transitional phase from public to private and, in the appearance of a personal retreat, reveals the impression of the greatest possible anonymity. The exhibition considers the hotel room as a transit space, a no-man's land in which themes are reflected in their continuous change and mutability. In the transience of its changing visitors, works by Volo Bevza, Jonas Brinker, Samuel Haitz, Youvalle Levy, Antonia Nannt, Maximilian Schröder and Emilia Urbanek are provisionally installed in the context of the room. All artists deal with retreat and the public sphere, with routines and introspection.
