If you’ve recently visited the Tempelhofer Park you will most likely have noticed the fifteen gazebos scattered across the fields. They are part of the “The World Is Not A Fair” exhibition of the HAU (Hebbel am Ufer), an artistic project with a twist. Their program is one of self-reflected irony, putting the methods of the international Expos into the fresh perspective of subjective art.
Every pavillion is therefore a different “state”, although not a political state but a state of mind and artwork. To get from one spot to the other, the makers of the “The World Is Not A Fair” Expo recommend to grab your bike and ride it out like a parcours. But do hurry up: the exhibition is only on til the 24th of June. The pavillions are open on Thursday and Friday from 4 PM to 10 PM and on Saturday and Sunday from 2 PM to 10 PM. Expect performances of the younger HAU–artists and incredibly thoughtful and political works. I find it incredibly exciting to have that kind of art blend in with one of Berlins most precious free spaces and gives more opportunities to see how much space can actually work into architecture, performances, happenings and the display of craft.
