Crossing Borders/ Crossing Boundaries

St. Petersburg, shosse Revolyutsii, 84
Opening Saturday the 14th of May

Alex Kurunis (UK), Brad Downey (US), Clemens Behr (DE), Eltono (FR), Filippo Minelli (IT), Gaia (US), Igor Ponosov (RU), James Bridle (UK), Jazoo Yang (KR), Jonathan Hollingsworth (US), Kirill Kto (RU), Martha Athienza (NL), Mata Ruda (US), Merijn Hos (NL), Nano 4814 (ES), Rob Pinney (UK), Spy (ES), Superproject (NL), Tita Salina (ID), Valerio Vincenzo (NL)

In 2016 SAM opens the season with a new opportune project. At a time in which notions of purity are recurrent, in which ‘refugee’ and crisis’, ‘migrants’ and ‘aliens’ have once again become paired as if natural, CROSSING BORDERS / CROSSING BOUNDARIES will thus explore the fertility and vibrancy of the border in contrast to the sterility and aridity of the boundary. It will explore the crossing of spatial and social borders, the crossing of conceptual and judicial boundaries, the equivalent instability and potentiality of the margins.

SWEAT SHOP is a performance.
SWEAT SHOP is an installation.
SWEAT SHOP is mulitmedial.
SWEAT SHOP is a simulacrum.
SWEAT SHOP is worldwide.
SWEAT SHOP is political.
SWEAT SHOP is philsophical.
SWEAT SHOP is a shop.

The basic idea of SWEAT SHOP is to extrapolate the mutuality of art and money, while commenting on the means of capitalist production in a globalized world, and reflecting on the artistic traditions in the means and ends of production in the eastern and the western philosophy.

For four days during the Berlin Gallery Weekend, when the art world comes to the German capital, a group of contemporary artists of different stylistic backgrounds will work in Berlin-Kreuzberg's free art space SCHAU FENSTER under “sweat shop conditions”. During their six hour shift, all the artist is given is a chair, a tripod, and paint. Each one of them inhabiting the 5 x 4 meter space between the four columns that structure the space.
