That’s so Berlin | Minerva Art Exhibition

1st -2nd December 2018,

Vernissage: Friday 1st December, 7pm-

Opening Hours: Saturday 2nd, 10am-7pm

In this biannual art exhibition, students of the international traveling university share the art they have created during the school semester. This is a hall of mirrors that shows how students reflect on their international experience, how those different cities shape them and how they, in turn, shape the cities they are in. The works deal with what concerns the students as travelers and as people learning to exist in the world: human contact and intimacy, creating a home in ever-changing landscapes, and being open to new experiences and ideas.

Minerva Schools at KGI is an innovative liberal arts university where students from all around the world study in 7 major international cities. The curriculum is experience-based, wheresmall seminar sessions and self-learning substitute the traditional lecture structure.

In this special solo show at PremArts, Dafne Della Dafne presents a collection of her latest song compositions and sound works, with accompanying video material, tracking her artistic interpretation of socio-economic and cultural conditions. In a landscape inhabited by changed climates, precarious living and gentrification, late capitalism’s gloom and doom is analysed in Dafne Della Dafne’s creative lab, Salon Daflon, and transformed into contemplative ruminations on how to survive and thrive in modern times.

There will be a live half-hour performance by the artist every evening.

Free entry, donations welcome.

Die Tore der Wahrnehmung / The Gates of Perception / 1865 – 2018

Bernard Bolter (San Francisco . 1974)

October 19th – October 28th, 2018
open daily 13:00 – 17:00 and by appointment

Vernissage | Thursday, October 18th | 19:00 – 22:00

In the final installment of this series, Bernard has deconstructed the final paintings in a journey that reflects the relation of the gates to present day Berlin. The original customs wall, while broken in half as Berlin was divided in two for many years, takes form again in the topography of the city as it rebuilds itself. The specific gates are still present in the names of subway stations and city squares, but only in an abstracted form. The final paintings in this series have deconstructed the process of combining the mediums of photography and painting into abstracted compositions that place the photographs less and less in a conventional viewpoint.

The Gates of Perception is a series of paintings that combine one photograph transferred to canvas and acrylic paint. The series portrays the gates of the Berlin Customs Wall, which existed from 1737 to 1860, with a combination of historical and present day photographs, spanning the city of Berlin from the end of the 19th century to the present day. The gates of the Customs Wall were named after the cities one would travel to when leaving Berlin, in a very outward looking way, and to this day still define the city.


Bernard Bolter is a contemporary American artist who works primarily between the mediums of paint and photography. Having grown up skateboarding in the streets to seeing the world by rolling through international streets, Cityscapes have been his inspiration and material throughout.

Raised in the City, Bernard began as and continues to be a San Francisco artist. His work and person is inherently international, having attended art school in the Netherlands, co-founded a non-profit traveling arts organization in Brooklyn, and collaborated on projects in China.

He currently works out of San Francisco and Berlin, filling in the betweens.

Featuring 13 chromogenic prints including one diptych , True South offers a glimpse into the artist’s extensive travels. True south, defined as the direction towards the southern end of the axis about which the earth rotates, is more poetically described by the artist as “the direction towards the other side…and the eternity of an instant” as well as a “state of mind.” The photographic images in this exhibition evoke Ten Hoever ‘s innate ability to discover and capture on film a hidden secret or story within a place he dwells. This gift comes from his patience and openness to experience on a deeper level the people and atmosphere of the places he encounters. For Ten Hoever, travel is not defined by the destination but rather the journey that he allows to unfold. Whether in Taos, Cartagena, Pueblo Garzon, the Cyclades or Cape de Creus, the artist approaches the land and its inhabitants with a striking sensitivity rare in today’s world.
