HAU Weltausstellung — The World Is Not A Fair

by Stefan · 20.06.2012 · Events, Places · 2 comments

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.

Find more inform­a­tion on the offi­cial Tem­pel­hofer Freiheit web­site and make sure to go by the event before it’s too late!
