On the 26th and the 27th of October, the curators of the Berlin Bärenzwinger are hosting a conference, bringing together various artistic, academic and political perspectives. The aim is to critically discuss and assess the past, present and future of this historically and culturally significant building.

Two years after the death of its last inhabitant, the Bärenzwinger has been transformed into a temporary exhibition venue for contemporary art, and as such has enjoyed ever growing attention. The curatorial concept centers on inviting artists to respond to the building’s rich architectural and discursive history.

During the first day (26.10.), the focus is on the current exhibition program with its three parts “Traces of the Animal(istic)”, “Architectures of Segregation” and “Projections of Indistinguishability”. On the second day (27.10.) we aim to open the discussion to more general questions concerning the conditions, possibilities and challenges that define temporary cultural uses.

The Symposium will be held in German language.
