Burger Collection to Open its Quadrilogy of Exhibitions and Events in Berlin
Steven Shearer, Poems VI-2.

BERLIN.- The Burger Collection opens its quadrilogy of exhibitions and events in Berlin in 2009. Conflicting Tales: Subjectivity (Quadrilogy, Part 1) is the inaugural exhibition of a four-part project of temporary exhibitions in four different cities worldwide to be held in the upcoming years. Conflicting Tales: Subjectivity (Quadrilogy, Part 1) interweaves the physical presence of works by more than 35 artists including two outdoor projects with an editorially ambitious catalogue and events such as roundtables, artist talks and a workshop.

Scenes of conflict and antagonism, scenes of disagreement and discord are motifs for the opening exhibition. With this premise, the exhibition engages with subjectivity, not an interior view, but an engagement with the field of tension that opens between the individual and society. Consciousness is posited as a problematic: how does the individual deal with societal ideas, rules, and models? Through what decisions does the individual arrive at the position that he or she ultimately takes vis-à-vis the others? In Conflicting Tales: Subjectivity (Quadrilogy, Part 1), art is not subjected to sociology, but becomes meaningful to the extent that it allows the viewer to observe how subjectivity is formed, influenced, challenged, and perhaps generated within aesthetic processes or phenomena.

The exhibition will be supplemented by a public program, including workshops, roundtables, artist talks and guided tours through the collection in cooperation with the Freie Universtät Berlin, the Universität der Künste UdK, Berlin and the De Appel Curatorial Programme Amsterdam.

In the upcoming parts of the quadrilogy, the Burger Collection will approach the collection from different discursive perspectives dealing with the aesthetic key terms of narration, history, and language.
