2022 ∣ Berlin
As part of the new Backjumps project THE ART OF MEMORIAL: DEATH AND EPHEMERAL IN GRAFFITI CULTURE i made this canvas. It was exhibit at the Backjumps Corner in Transgressive. Every Name was made with a single breath. While breathing out.
TRANSGRESSIVE is dedicated to diverse artistic positions of international Berlin-based cutlural producers, who are are characterized by a cross-border approach to the arts and the city.
All participants have in common a self-determined and subversive approach to urban space. From graffiti to cruising and queer spaces within the city, and from temporary architectures to forms of social activism, many of the works shown here find their origin in often unauthorized and sometimes even illegal urban practices.
The participating artists from the visual and performing arts, architecture, and urban research will present a wide variety of anti-disciplinary artistic practices – in media as diverse as painting, collage, sculpture, installation, film, photography, and performance. In their creative process, they all enter into close connections with the city, allowing the city to appear as the point of departure of their works.
