Resist! Die Kunst des Widerstands

RESIST! beleuchtet 500 Jahre antikolonialen Widerstand im Globalen Süden und erzählt über koloniale Unterdrückung und ihre Auswirkungen bis heute. Die Ausstellung ist eine Hommage an die Menschen, die auf unterschiedlichste Art und Weise Widerstand geleistet haben und deren Geschichten bis heute kaum erzählt oder gehört werden. Die Arbeiten von über 40 zeitgenössischen Künstler*innen aus dem Globalen Süden und der Diaspora, die Geschichten von Rebellion und Krieg, Gewalt und Trauma sowie Überleben und Resilienz. Ihre Erzählungen werden ergänzt von historischen Dokumenten und zahlreichen Objekten aus der Sammlung des RJM, stumme Zeugen von Momenten des Widerstands. Innerhalb des Labyrinths eröffnen vier autonom kuratierte Räume weitere Perspektiven. more

Deep Encouter

Deep Encounter is a floating pavilion built for the biennale „sonsbeek20→24: force times distance ⏤ on labour and its sonic ecologies“. It serves as a social gathering space and seeks to give equal consideration to both humans and nature in the park. The floating pavilion exists in nature but outside of its rules. Aside from the fact that it floats, the pavilion takes on a very artificial character. The round polygon shape of the Pavilion, a crystal-like constellation of triangles, is meant to emphasise its man-made qualities—floating starkly just off the shore of Grote Vijver, the park’s biggest pond.

softbones

Love is risk, love is beauty, love is decision, love is a permanent challenge. It’s about discovering, leaving behind, opening up, letting in and caring for. It’s transformative, it’s an adventure and a zone de repos (place to rest).

 

Love is not a stable condition but a fluid relationship, that is recreated each day. It is a possibility.

Der Bau

GP Dana Michel „CUTLASS SPRING“ © Jörg Baumann

How can we enjoy the dramatic arts in the pandemic age? How can we go to the theatre without the fear of infection, without feeling lonely in the audience wearing masks and surrounded by antiseptic surfaces? How can we save the arts from being reduced by health care restrictions?

For the Theatre Künstlerhaus Mousonturm raumlabor developed a new, pandemic-conform space made of clay. The new theatre has 20 family-balconies for the audience and a 360° stage for the artists.

FLOATING e.V.

FLOATING UNIVERSITY e.V. 

 

In 2018, Floating University Berlin was initiated by raumlabor as a temporary inner-city laboratory for collective, experiential learning and transdisciplinary exchange.

The founding year of the Floating University saw a diverse breadth of visitors involved to varying degrees with the activity on site, creating a unique ecosystem. The program consolidated a network of practitioners, who towards the end of 2018 decided to continue the experiment by transitioning from a ‘temporary’ project into an association: Floating University e.V.

Making Futures School

Over the course of two weeks, over 150 participants took part in a diverse curriculum convened by practitioners in the field of spatial practices. Acting as a non-disciplinary learning environment, the School proposes, designs, builds, negotiates, maintains, performs and celebrates an educational and convivial space in and around Haus der Statistik, Berlin. At the same time, it becomes a dynamic actor within a process of urban transformation, serving as a common sphere of action between participants, neighbors and civic society.

Allmänna Badet / Bathing Culture

 

 

We are very happy to announce that the sauna building, part of our Bathing Culture project in the former industrial harbor of Gothenburg, has won the SAVG Architecture Award 2015 (Swedish Association of Architects Gothenburg Region).

 

statement of the jury: The architects of Sweden Västra Götalands architecture prize 2015 has been assigned to the Sauna in Frihamnen (Bathing Culture Göteborg)
Like a stranded container it stands there. A slight unshaped figure with a corrugated surface, in the old basin of Frihamnen. The sauna gives vitality, contributes to new life and a new future. With its zest for life and will to create, the sauna becomes more than just a creative haven it also becomes a vitamin injection for the whole town.

 

The sauna building is also one of 4 nominees for the Kasper Salin-priset 2015 , the National Swedish Architecture Award.

House of Time

 

Situated in an unlikely pocket along a canal in Bruges—one of the few remaining industrial sites in the historical port city—the project reprograms and reactivates this factory area into a sphere of collective imagination, action, and transformation. The project evolves slowly over time: developed in collaboration with local youth, the House of Time enables them to work together to find solutions to social and community problems through discussions, experiments, and the act of living together. The project is part of the Bruges Triennial 2018: Liquid City, for the duration of which the place is open to all.
