Performing Berlin

Exhibition | Flight laboratory | Flight Days I | Guided tours | Lectures - 04 March – 08 May 2011

The mistranslation in the double-barreled title is deliberate: one the one hand, the curators Thomas Hauschild and Britta N. Heinrich are interested in the human dream of flight, while on the other hand, they address the technology of human flight as powered by combustion processes.

A tour through time and space – from the Montgolfière to the oldest and highly valuable Shaman’s cloak, from model jet aircraft to the fictitious “Ingold Airlines” – answers are sought to questions such as: has human technology fulfilled all humanity’s dreams? Would it have been possible without primitive but extremely durable technologies for throwing, shooting, riding? What if humanity had to abstain once again from the realization of some technological goals (space travel, cheap passenger air travel), and how would it go about fulfilling the dream of flight in such a case?

    A CinePoem of Berlins trainstation Ostkreuz before the gigantomanic reconstruction 2005-2007.
    The film bespeaks the loss of atmosphere, individuality and social ties, suggests that there is a difficult path to be taken between the trade-offs of necessary change and the preservation of evolved structures. It is an attempt to memorialize in poetic images this decrepit and yet so charming train station at Ostkreuz.
