ifa Gallery Berlin | 01.03.2019 – 16.03.2019
Exhibition | RESONANCES (rez.ən.ənsez) is a space for research and encounter at ifa Gallery Berlin. Within an open research installation in the context of the exhibition programme “Untie to Tie” the experts involved will discuss, activate and share their different approaches, strategies and practices. Visitors are welcome to reflect upon their own knowledge(s), to listen and to engage with the space and the wide variety of materials.
Resonances evolves in conversation with the practitioners and participants, providing an insight into a multiplicity of narratives and articulations of knowledge(s) that have been gathered, produced and generously shared among one another. It engages with artistic/curatorial strategies of dissent and serves as well as a reflection on the processes behind visible forms of exhibition making. The idea is to activate a mode of exchange, and to open a space for discussion, dissonant discourses and practices of “un_learning”, Assuming that shifting the base of our knowledge(s) leads to shifting our way of being in the world, Resonances gives rise to multiple questions that are not new but still far from being answered: What conditions are needed to shift the status quo of the imperialist and capitalist structures that support white supremacy and patriarchy and what common practice(s) do we need? Which new modes of operating, occupying and epistemic disobedience can be activated within (and outside) the colonial power matrix? How can we aim for more horizontality being situated within mostly vertical structures of power?
