“Nature is a petrified magic city.” – Novalis

Our MAGIC CITY is a place and a non-place. It is not the physical city of brick and mortar but rather the urban space of internalized meanings. It is the city as subject and canvas, neither theme park nor stage set, but an exhibition showcasing some of the most original and celebrated artists working on and in the city today. Like the art it features, MAGIC CITY is a zone of unexpected encounters, art as born in interstice and the peripheral, appearing along those rips in the fabric of the ordinary where the extraordinary intrudes its wonderful illogic.

We believe that even the typical city is uncommon, and that the idiosyncrasies that make each city unique are collectively something they all have in common. This is then a celebration of the universal character of cities as well as a love letter to their infinite diversity. The special magic that comes from our cities is germinated in the mad sum of their improbable juxtapositions and impossible contradictions. We have asked these many artists to help us with an eye to the contrasts offered up by heterogeneity because the truth is not always a matter of common consent but is more likely forged in a crucible of difference and spoken in the polyglot.

We hope that the broad scope of expressions and practices evidenced between these artists, the full range of mediums and genres on display, the disjunctive scale here from the monumental to the minimal, and all the different strategies by which artists intervene in our normal experience of things to provoke and query the status quo, allows in its unruly mélange a kind of something-for-everyone show. Cities have been designed to facilitate work, but artists have transformed them into playgrounds for the imagination and ideas. This is the invitation called outside our window by friends and strangers with restless spirits: come out and play.

Telepathic record.Both of them said in unison. “I was thinking the exact same thing. “,,,, “punch bug”…. Followed by silence.I had a dream where I was visited by a race of telepathics who had outlawed negative thoughts. I was charged with releasing an angry thought into the society and condemned to a dangerous neurological procedure.A German friend of mine explained to me that when at a young age he first heard the Bob Marley song “Were Jammin”, he thought bob was singing “Were German””……GERMAN and We hope you like German too. “ My german friend was touched with Bob’s gesture of good faith towards the Germans. I received a phone call from a friend. He had been thinking about Muhammad Ali fighting me all day and didn’t know why. Ali and me were both born in Louisville Kentucky.Target practice … son of a gun.Brad is Brad

On January 28th, we will open the exhibition Belong Anywhere at two locations in Berlin. Following up the opening in the central exhibition space – an AirBnB apartment – the second part of the show will take place at ACUD MACHT NEU along with some drinks and music.

There will be a transfer via Uber-cars from the apartment to ACUD MACHT NEU, that functions at the same time, as space of display for an exhibition piece that has been conceived for especially this setting. The Location of the apartment and the first part of the show, will be announced the day of the opening – for this purpose please RSVP to belonganywhereex@gmail.com.

The exhibition uses AirBnB’s popular tagline Belong anywhere as a starting point, the promise of being at home anywhere in the world, Berlin, Beirut, Beijing: AirBnB users travel to those cities not as mere tourists, they purchase and enact the experience of temporary affiliation to that place. In this notion Anywhere appears as an imaginary space, translocal and globally homogenized.

The works in the exhibition evolve around the trajectories and correlations between the aesthetical strategies of the AirSpace and the effects of displacement triggered by housing policies. Different artistic positions investigate the entanglements of the DIY Bourgoisie with the semantic sphere of private property and classification: This belongs to me and not to you. This one belongs there and not here. The exhibition approaches the coded attributes and operating modes of the social, imaginary space.

Welcome Home.

Opening on January 28th at the AirBnB apartment 6-9pm, at ACUD Studio from 8pm on. Followed by DJ Sets by Marlene Stark and Elliver.

The exhibition is open on January 29th from 12-6 pm at the AirBnB apartment. The exact adress will be send to you at the day oft he opening, please write to: belonganywhereex@gmail.com
