BERLIN.- Rundgang 50Hertz is an exhibition series curated by the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin that promotes new perspectives in contemporary art. Over a period of three years, in cooperation with the transmission systems operator 50Hertz, the Nationalgalerie will present projects by recent graduates from art academies in Berlin, Hamburg and Leipzig. Their work is being presented to the public this summer in a flexible pavilion designed by Florian Stirnemann (raumlabor berlin) at the corporate headquarters of 50Hertz, located in direct proximity to the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin.

In 2018, for the second edition of Rundgang 50Hertz, this year’s jury, comprised of Franka Hörnschemeyer (artist), Katharina Herrmann (50Hertz – Chief Human Resources Officer), Joachim Jäger (Head of the Neue Nationalgalerie) and Gabriele Knapstein (Head of the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin), chose three artists from a longlist of 20: Ana Belén Cantoni, Judith Dorothea Gerke and Timo Hinze, whose work is being presented in a new version of the pavilion.

Ana Bélen Cantoni (b. 1983 in Lima, Peru) graduated from the weißensee kunsthochschule berlin. Her works plumb the depths of space. She arranges thin, ephemeral plasterboards into abstract “edifices” that evoke both urban and natural associations. Her plaster objects sprawl across the floor, laying a fragile claim to physical space as well as challenging the viewer’s attentiveness as every careless movement sets off a process of erosion, transforming the original composition.

Judith Dorothea Gerke (b. 1991 in Riverside, California) graduated in sculpture from the Berlin University of the Arts. In her photo installations she examines the theme of surfaces as areas of contact. Taking closeups of corporeal and technical materials, she combines anew the resulting photographs with real, three-dimensional objects. Although her ceramic objects and interest in the human body situate her in the classical field of sculpture, Gerke succeeds in blurring conventional genre boundaries by applying the aesthetics of selfie culture and photography, making them a central visual medium. Her sculptural installations merge with their surroundings and what is being portrayed.

Timo Hinze (b. 1985 in Hamburg), a graduate of the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig, focuses on the interior decoration and design of work environments. He visits trade fairs, trawls the internet and the streets of Berlin, and collects visual designs that reference the reorganisation of work environments and urban development. In photographs, slideshows and clay objects he combines his research into a vision of the future, where choosing the right product guarantees success, motivational workplace slogans promote self-optimisation and architectural vistas on construction fences promise a stylish private life.

The exhibition has been curated by Matilda Felix, Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin. The curator will give a guided tour on Thursday, 26 July 2018, at 4.30 pm.

An accompanying publication will be published with essays by Sarah Alberti, Leonie Pfennig and Andreas Prinzing, edited by Matilda Felix for the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, with numerous illustrations, German / English, ca. 70 pages.
