Gallery Weekend Berlin / ArtistWeekend
For the period of Berlin gallery weekend and the first time in its history, the 5000 square meter studio spaces of Lehderstrasse 34 will host an incredibly diverse exhibition of paintings, sculpture, multi media, installation, film and photography, in which artists invite other artists to exhibit in the context of this studio environment, thus returning the viewer to the very place of art’s genesis.
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.
July 22nd 2014, Wermke/Leinkauf hoisted two hand-sewn „White American Flags“ atop the towers of New Yorks iconic Brooklyn Bridge. The intervention was followed by a serious investigation by the NYPD and counter terrorism units as well as a huge media discussion.
