Activismo Experimental: Artists Involved!

In recent years, art has become increasingly political, again. The societies around the globe and even in Europe and the United States seem to wake up from the rigidity of the paralysing West-East conflict, and its aftermath, when there seemed to be no alternative to economic liberalism. Some artists take amazing risks to do public actions, others try to subvert written or unwritten laws in more subtle ways, however, in many ways, the society has become the material again for artists to experiment with. Furthermore, the cheeky and anarchist stance many artists have developed may have an influence on how the freedom to speech, which seems to be in jeopardy again, will be interpreted and used in the future.

Brandstifter DE Asphaltbibliotheque Berlin 2011
Exhibition with lost and found sheets of paper

The installation "Asphaltbibliotheque Berlin 2011" at Directors Lounge works together with the screening of Brandstifter's documentation of his long term concept "Ein kleines Stück Papier" for Urban Art Research, displaying the gathered remains from Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Lichtenberg, Mitte and Neukölln from the "lost&found art research tour Hannover-Berlin" Easter 2011 as a brief sample of his huge collection that he archives from public space since 1998.

The Poetry of Papers "The Asphaltbibliotheque shows how poetic and many-layered artistic reordering can make an idea that is simple in itself. Brandstifter understands how to charge the profane with the poetic, and in so doing to provide playfully anarchic inspiration to conceive the everyday world as a freely formable work of art." (Martin Büsser, art critic, author, publisher, Testcard/Ventil Verlag)
