After the Butcher - Leistungsbasisshow
Leistungsbasisshow (eine berlinische Artistik)
Performance by Christoph Bannat and Axel Gerber
A scenic reading on the development of based in Berlin:
What does art have to do with Leistung (Efficiency)?
Who belongs to the basis?
Who or what is based in Berlin?
What does Klaus Wowereit have to do with all that?
The artist initiative After the Butcher describes itself as a “project space provided by artists for artists,” offering young and lesser known artists an opportunity and a platform to present their work. Franziska Böhmer and Thomas Kilpper have been pursuing this mission since 2006, having since hosted 29 exhibitions at their Spittastrasse location, a former butcher shop in the district of Lichtenberg in Berlin.
Invited by based in Berlin to develop an artistic concept for the entire third floor of KW Institute for Contemporary Art, After the Butcher collaborated with various artist groups to develop a possible program. The exhibition space will remain largely empty, and serve as a stage for a series of temporary installations or interventions by six groups of artists.
