invited in the context of beyond language, an exchange project between South Africa and Germany, curated by Eva Seufert and Fouad Asfour, in collaboration with the Dead Revolutionaries Club, Johannesburg

After exhibitions, discussions, workshops and readings in Johannesburg, Soweto and Polokwane in winter 2011, for which Berlin based artists Eva Seufert and Ingo Gerken had been in South Africa, the exhibition in Berlin tries to focus on some of the raised questions.
Therefore we are happy to invite the South African artists Bandile Gumbi, Sharlene Khan und Claudia Shneider as well as the artist and curator of the Polokwane Art Museum Amos Letsoalo and the curator of the Hector Pieterson Museum Khwezi Gule.

The title of the exhibition relates to a constitutive misunderstanding in communication, caused by the volatility of meaning, which on the other hand generates the subversive potential of language.
The suggestion for direct speech would be to use language as material and material as language.

On June 30 Khwezi Gule, curator of the Hector Pieterson Museum in Soweto, will talk about the Soweto uprising against the implementation of Afrikaans as school language and the consequences of Bantu Education in South Africa.

atb #30 | M85 – Fragments of a Cluster Bomb

Lukas Einsele

Opening Friday, May 13 from 7pm

Exhibition: May 14  through  June 10,
open only by appointment
+49 – 157 – 783 304 98

M85 are ground-launched bomblets, which can be dispensed from a variety of cluster munitions, including artillery cargo projectiles, mortars and rockets. The two functions of M85 are: to penetrate armour and to create fragmentation for an anti-personnel/anti-materiel effect. M85 are small and of cylindrical shape. M85 are the only bomblet containing a self destruct (SD) mechanism that have been used in combat; in 2003 by the United Kingdom in Iraq, and in 2006 by Israel in Lebanon, 2009 by Georgia against Russland, and presumably in 2011 by Thailand against Cambodia. 
The exhibition »M85 – Fragments of a Cluster Bomb« tries to  reconstruct the trajectory of M85: from a spot where they exploded (or not) back to their origins. Dead or wounded civilians, farmers, paramedics, surgeons, deminers, soldiers, politicians, dealers,  factory workers, engineers… Who are the individuals behind, besides, and in front of M85, and what is their relation to the weapon and to each other?
