Farbwerte - SchwarzRotGold

From Jan 29-31, 2010, you can see the project Farbwerte – SchwarzRotGold (colour values – blackredgold) in the Malzfabrik. The Fight Club 1 will be used as an extraordinary exhibition space for the second time.

 

The pre-opening takes place on January 28, 2010 as part of the New Year’s reception “ALL YOU CAN MEET” held by the Berlin Kreativnetzwerke (creative networks) and on invitation only. The opening is on Friday, January 29, 2010 and is open to the public. Admission is free. Since this project is primarily privately funded, the initiators do appreciate donations.

 

After the opening, the exhibition is open only on Saturday, January 30, and on Sunday, January 31, from 14h00 to 18h00. Starting Monday, February 1, 2010, the exhibition can be visited by arrangement.

 

The project Farbwerte – SchwarzRotGold was initiated by creative director and project developer Robert Eysoldt in March 2009. It deals with the question of German identity and gathers different positions.

 

60 international designers and artists were given the task of incorporating the black-red-golden flag into works of art. From fashion to illustration, from product design to photography – all means and media are allowed. The only constant: The German flag, sent to the participants, has to be included.

 

In addition, Robert Eysoldt and photographer Frank Rösner have photographed more than 45 people from economics, politics and culture with the German flag.

 

Initiator Robert Eysoldt: “The project „Farbwerte – SchwarzRotGold“ reflects scepticism and enthusiasm and the resulting variety of standpoints and opinions. The diversity of the objects, images and the respective texts cause a creative impulse necessary for reflection and discourse.”

 

To further dynamize the colour value theme, protagonists, artists and designers from the respective local and cultural area will be included in the project before each exhibition. Designers and artists from the exhibition venue will receive the German flag to incorporate it in their artwork before sending it back with a written statement. In addition, they will photograph selected people with the German flag. That way the project stays alive and each exhibition offers new visual and content related impulses with a local twist.

 

The project will be in Shanghai, China starting March 20th, preceding this year’s EXPO.
