LEIKO IKEMURA - ... AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE WIND IS TURNING
Paintings, drawings, sculptures, poems
The Japanese artist Leiko Ikemura was twenty-one years old when she left the country of her birth. She studied art and literature in Europe. From Spain she moved first to Switzerland and from there on to Germany. Her international career began in Cologne. For a professorship in painting she later moved to Berlin, where she lives and works today.
Now, after a phase of critical distance, Ikemura opens up in her poetically sensitive picture, in her sculptures as well as her poems to the deeper aspects of an existence that roots in Japan and is at home everywhere and nowhere. The exhibition focuses on her most recent works from the 2000s. Being a stranger between cultures is reflected on many levels. More

J.MAYER.H - STRUKTURALIEN
ARCHITECTURE AS URBAN SCULPTURE
As a matter of course J.MAYER.H navigates the analogue as well as the digital world. For him architecture is neither a mere algorithm nor the exclusive output of an author. Rather, it is a reflection in the present on the relations between body, space, technology and communication.
Repeatedly, this revolves around the questions as to how architecture can operate in surroundings flooded by streams of information and how it can render visible, and render legible to the user, the permanent transformation of the digital present precisely on account of its own immobility.
Career, background and highlights of J.MAYER.H’s building activities are being presented in their full range in Berlin for the first time. More
