APOLLO

Until 11th August 2013

With Christin Berg (DE), Benedikte Bjerre (DK), Andreas Bülow Cosmus (DK), Oscar Carlson (SE), Ian Edmonds (CA), Natasja Loutchko (SE), John Skoog (SE), Giovanni Sortino (IT) and Marcello Spada (IT).

An exhibition of contemporary ethnographic and artistic practice by former and current Städelschule students.

In the spring 2013, nine artists spent a month at the Villa Lugaresi in Bellaria, a small town on the Adriatic coast, to re-open "Cinema-Teatro Apollo", a former picture-house. Together with the town of Bellaria, the cinema and villa have undergone several transformations over the last 100 years. In re-opening the cinema, the group attempts to let different changes and times collapse and overlap.

The exhibition in the Weltkulturen Labor proposes a performative approach to displaying research, fieldwork and objects. A publication is produced and bound on site in the Green Room. Each copy has a different page order and creates new juxtapositions and ways of understanding the material. This process is intended to remediate the original fieldwork that took place in Bellaria in the Apollo cinema.
