MediaScape 2008


While the city or the urban area is regarded as the area of development, fast progress, and in addition the absent-minded, superficial and disconcentrated perception, the area of the “landscape” is in contrast the place of peace, collection and leisure. In the countryside outside the city the perception of space and time win other values.The landscape encourages for curving: the view, the hearing, the smell and the thoughts win perspective, which the area of the landscape opens. This leads also to a slowing down and a sensory perception, to a concentration, which is another as those of the city.The area outside of the city or outside of the life sphere of humans generally is not characterized by civilization, but by natural conditions: Apparently ordinary: the brook, the tree, the meadow appear in new light, the murmuring water, the noise of the wind kidnap urban humans into another reality. In the countryside there is still a horizon. Here prevails a liberty of view over the restricted city view. The city has structure, pictogram forests, a silhouette perhaps, but no horizon. In the landscape however the horizon is always there and lures into the distance. The horizon is everywhere, has 360° and more. Novigrad is a town, but circled by an immense countryside and great perspectives of the Adriatic Sea.The connection of this reality with the possibilities of current art work, the bridging between nature and civilization and between technology and art is the starting point of Media-Scape 2008.

liebe freunde und kollegen,

wir haben im juli 2011 ein ladengeschäft und eine darüberliegende 3 zimmer wohnung (zusammen ca. 220 qm) im afrikanischen viertel im berliner wedding gekauft, um ein neues galerie/residenz projekt am 16. dezember 2011 zu starten. der kauf ist jetzt glatt über die bühne gegangen und die immobilie gehört jetzt uns und ist lastenfrei.

im zuge unserer recherchen jedoch sind wir auf einige andere interessante objekte zu gestoßen.

um es kurz zu machen: wir suchen investoren, die sowohl an moderater rendite, aber auch an der rettung von bezahlbaren wohn-, arbeits-, und austellungsmöglichkeiten im zentrumsnahen berlin interessiert sind.
wir bekommen da eine ganz illustre gesellschaft zusammen, die in einer gemeinnützigen GmbH mit angeschlossener finanzierungsagentur für kunst zusammengefasst werden soll, mit dem ziel im wedding einen lebendigen kunststandort zu erhalten, bevor die haie alles unter sich aufteilen.

dear friends and colleagues,

we have bought in july 2011 a shop plus the 3-room appartment above the shop (approx. 700 square feet) in the “african quarter” in berlin-wedding to start a new gallery/residency project on december 16th 2011.

during our recherche we have found some other interesting objects.

to shorten it up: we are looking for investors, interested as well in moderate return and as well in an action to rescue affordable living-, work- and exhibitionspace in a central part of berlin.
we will gather an illustrous bunch of people, which should form a limited firm including an agency for art financing in order to keep and stimulate a lively art quarter before the sharks have eaten it all.
