Rethinking Location Anytime Anywhere Everything :: until June 19, 2010 :: Sprüth Magers, Oranienburger Straße 18, D-10178 Berlin.
With works by Rosa Barba – Cyprien Gaillard – Andreas Hofer – Koo Jeong-A – David Maljkovic – Trevor Paglen – Christodoulos Panayiotou – Sterling Ruby – Paul Sietsema – Taryn Simon – Armando Andrade Tudela – Andro Wekua. Curated by Johannes Fricke Waldthausen.
Evolving from the work of twelve conceptual artists, filmmakers and photographers presenting alternate interpretations of fictional geographies, imaginary sites and ‘mash-up’ destinations, the exhibition Rethinking Location reconsiders the notion of location. In an era characterized by a rapidly changing perception of time and space due to ever increasing mobility, migration and globalisation, our understanding of what a location is has significantly transformed. Taking these changes for granted, the exhibition investigates how artists consider location and geography as source material for their work.
