April 22. 2021 – Day for night – Exhibition in Berlin Cinema Vitrines in Mitte
#SaveTheDate – An exhibition in the cinema showcases of Babylon, Kino Central, Kino International and Hackesche Höfe in Berlin Mitte featuring: Caroline Achaintre, Xavier Antin, Pierre-Olivier Arnaud, Heike Bollig, Andreas Bunte, Susanne Bürner, Annika Eriksson, Ludovica Gioscia, Michael Hakimi, Richard Hards, Laura Horelli, Dominique Hurth, Paul McDevitt, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Prince Gholam, Maya Schweizer, Gonçalo Sena, Heidi Specker, Katja Strunz, Sue Tompkins.
22 April, 3 pm through 7 pm
“Day for Night” (“Tag als Nacht” or also “American Night”) is a process in film technology in which night shots are shot in daylight, simulated with filters. Under this title, the 20 invited artists will present a total of 40 posters in the cinema showcases.
The artists are united by an interest in image-making – mental and real – in relation to the film. Some work refers directly to moving image (Andreas Bunte, Laura Horelli, Annika Eriksson, Wendelien van Oldenborgh), others focus on performative approaches emphasized by text and masks (Prinz Gholam, Caroline Achaintre, Susanne Bürner). Finally, some of the works are dedicated to the poster itself and various collage, printing and reproduction techniques (Heike Bollig, Katja Strunz, Ludovica Gioscia, Pierre-Olivier Arnaud).
The exhibition was conceived by the Berlin-based artists Susanne Bürner and Dominique Hurth. It is financed by the sale of artist posters on indiegogo.com “day for night”. It will be on view during Gallery Weekend at the end of April.
