The Gates of Perception / Die Tore der Wahrnehmung
As a conclusion to his DIY residency in Berlin, Bernard Bolter presented his new series of mixed media paintings of the historical Gates of Berlin.
A contemporary American artist, Bernard is working primarily between the mediums of paint and photography. He is a Cityscape artist; from growing up skating in the streets to traveling international streets, cities have been his inspiration and material.
‘To be human, is in itself an art, as seen through the creative problem solving everyone uses to survive. Art can be so specific and specialized that we’re not even sure sometimes if anybody is making any new art. It can be such a mystery that no matter what time period you were to have lived in, there was always somebody saying that it’s all been done before. I work to contribute somewhere in the middle of this spectrum, with a nod to what has been built upon in the past with a sense of the universal.’ http://bernardbolter.com

Artists Annekatrin Buhl, Angelika Dierkes, Andrea Höhne, Christine Kurka, Ulrike Ludwig, Andreas Machate, Konstanze Müller-Kitti, Judith Pfannenmüller, Anna Rittweger and Susanne Schmidt illuminate mutiple aspects of this relationship in this compelling photographic series. Chaotic and unstructured; fairytale-like and mysterious; romantic and nostalgic – the continual mystery of the woods is unveiled.
Wald – eine unverständliche Leidenschaft
Die Projekt-Fotoklasse “Wald – eine unverständliche Leidenschaft” unter der Leitung von Ulrike Ludwig hat sich mit dem besonderen Verhältnis zum Wald auseinandergesetzt, das man den Deutschen gemeinhin nachsagt. Ganz unterschiedliche Aspekte haben Annekatrin Buhl , Angelika Dierkes, Andrea Höhne, Chrsitine Kurka, Andreas Machate, Konstanze Müller-Kitti, Jutdith Pfannenmüller und Susanne Schmidt in ihren Bildserien umgesetzt. Mal ist es das Chaotische und Unstrukturierte, dann auch wieder das Märchenhafte und Unheimliche oder Romantische, das in den Bildern zur Sprache kommt.
A group of the exiled and outcast have assembled in Berlin to reclaim their voice. Descendents of witches, heretics, persecuted people – we are here to tell our side of the story.
Those who live independently of authority are considered a threat to the established order. The figure of the witch, for example, is that of a woman who is dangerous for her associations with evil, that is, for her hidden knowledge, her rejection of Puritanism, her autonomy in patriarchal society. Today, some social conditions remain the same, women are still discounted and disbelieved. The tides are now changing. It is time for those who have been silent and silenced to speak and be heard. For if you do not define yourself, you will be swallowed by the definitions of others.
