Mapping Contemporary Concerns

By Andrzej Raszyk, 10. Juni 2014

Mapping Contemporary Concerns is a methodology that surpasses berlinerpool. It was born from the need to discuss current issues that are present in the berlin art context and to find a response in the art practice of berlinerpool members.

MCC is a means for the berlinerpool archive to bring these current topics to the stage in the form of open discussions by inviting outside professionals and members of our network. The panel meet and discuss a central topic – often aligned or in the framework of other events hosted by the city, triggered by spontaneous visits of significant actors / thinkers / knowledge carriers in the art and cultural fields. The system of keywords is supporting the semantic axis of these visits.

With this format berlinerpool arts network & mobile archive aims to raise the question of whether we can speak of a potential “vocabulary” inherent to Berlin’s art production, in terms of medium, approaches, subjects, materials or sources the makers are dealing with and driven by.

Being part of ARCHIVE IT – talks, this latest format developed by berlinerpool is committed to the sharing, collecting. connecting, exchanging and contextualizing of visions and knowledge (In symmetry of triple nature of berlinerpool as a Database, Network and Platform for project development.)
