Studio 13

Let‘s talk about work (and life). How to work - now and in the future. by Giulia Palladini, Marie-José Ourtilane, Eva Meyer-Keller, Erik Göngrich

A series of talks with guests and their guests.

Studio 13 offers people in Berlin who are working in and around the area of contemporary performing arts a space to exchange ideas and opinions on artistic methods and major working areas. The working approach of an artist is illuminated and contextualised by his conversation partner in four successive conversations.
The curators Silke Bake and Jacopo Lanteri invite one artist to enter into a conversation with a person of his choice. This person then invites a third person, who in turn finds a guest to continue the thread of conversations. The first conversation starts from an artist’s own current area of working interest: this might take the form of an interview. After roughly half an hour the second person turns to the third guest and the dialogue develops further – all the way to a dialogue between the third and fourth person. The circle closes when the final person takes up the conversation thread once more with the first guest.

Erik Göngrich

Erik Göngrich currently he lives and works in Berlin and abroad since 1991. Göngrich is an artist working in the public domain using various methods of collaborations, exhibitions, guided tours, building and cooking sessions. Erik Göngrich is an Artist who works in the public domain. His work is about creating a place of exchange that could be an exhibition, a guided tour or a pavilion with a functioning kitchen for the neighborhood. The projects are based on a long research time to develop specific works for the place and to find collaborators for the actions. The work is about history, trust, political space, modern architecture, cooking and sculpture. Whatever exhibition, installation, publication or pavilion in public it all starts with the interest in the given situation: “I believe in the found objects as todays contemporary sculptures in public and I think in this highly complex time we live in we need more and more collaborators that are developing the artistic action with us.” If you ask me the basic question: What do you do as an artist? I like to respond: I love to do walks, books, marmalade, silk-screen-prints, pavilions, ceramics, activation drawings, performances, fotos and cakes.” His artistic approach and working strategies can be traced back from his publications; “What is Really Necessary to Add to Reality?” (1997) where he dwells upon the basic question of the ultimate necessity for an artistic intervention. With “Picnic City”(2001) he is investigating the minimum requirements for realising a public intervention. His publication “Starving for Embarrassing Architecture” (2005) outputs the belief that the solutions for architectural and urban developments lie in the ordinary banal and not in the high class modernism. “Alles andre ist drin!” (2005) comes back to the fact that in found and existing situations and objects everything (history and future) is visible. “The Beginning of the Misunderstanding” (2011) is an archival book that examines the misunderstandings that took hold in the public consciousness alongside the international modern and functional architecture. What are our notions of urbanity today and to what extent do they reflect our urban reality? He takes a sculptural view of the informal qualities of the public sphere and is an active archivist of the transformations of public space – some of which he effected, others of which he discovered.  www.goengrich.de
