The Podbielski Contemporary gallery of Berlin, Germany, celebrates its fifth anniversary with a group exhibition on “Utopias”. On view through April 16, 2016.
“Utopias” means an imaginary and ideal country in Utopia (1516) by Sir Thomas More, from Greek ou – not, no + topos – place. To celebrate its fifth anniversary, Podbielski Contemporary has selected works that best illustrate the theme of “Utopias”.
Andréas Lang’s ‘Jungle’ enhances the magic of boundless, threatening nature as it once was perceived. Beatrice Minda narrates an Iran (once Persia) that seems to have vanished from our imagination. Agnese Purgatorio’s ‘Della Clandestinita’ metaphorically addresses the first wave of desperate immigrants from Albania to Puglia in the 90s.
More works are contributed by Shadi Ghadirian, Francesco Jodice, Thomas Jorion, Yussof Knauss, Ohad Matalon, Leandro Quintero, Heiko Räpple, Dubravka Vidović and WON Seoung Won.
