Concrete Utopias

May 1, 2015 – June 13, 2015
Alte Post, Hauptstrasse 29, 10827 Berlin
Realismus Club #001

The exhibition CONCRETE UTOPIAS provides a space for artistic works that explore the area of potentiality between “not-yet-realised” and “but-possible”. The art on display will be showing visions that are predominantly about the Now; offering playful alternatives and new approaches to socio-cultural questions, addressing political power structures in an urban environment and above all defying rules.

White American Flags

Suddenly you see this steel poetry [...]. It puts everything to shame and makes you wonder what else we could have done that was so marvelous and so unpresumptuous. [...] He [John A. Roebling] really aspired to do something gorgeous. So it makes you feel that maybe you, too, could add something that would last and be beautiful.
(Arthur Miller in ”Brooklyn Bridge“ by Ken Burns, 1981)


On the night of July 21st to July 22nd Wermke/Leinkauf hoisted two hand-sewn white American flags on the towers of Brooklyn Bridge.
