Recap: Backjumps "Christmas special" 2013

Kunstraum Kreuzberg, december 2013 from outside..
Backjumps "Christmas-Special" was represented in Berlin, from 13.-15. 12. 2013. @ Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien. The Exibition was curated by Adrian Nabi.
Displaying the works of: Akay & Brad Downey, Amok & Kacao77, Arunski & Poet, Markus Butkereit, Dave the Chimp, Markus Mai, Mode2, Phos4, The Wa, Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf and Daniel Weißbach. At the following pictures I just try to discribe what i saw, i had no talks with the artists about their intention or background within their works, so my comment is equivalent.

on the rightside were 2 canvases hanging..

A couple of drawings/studies? in different styles on paper...

 Markus Butkereit presented a remoted-operated motor-pump machine and a Shortfilm documenting the process of a bleeding housefront, that is struggling with the external circumstances...

4 works/drawings done together by Amok & Kacao77, which fitted good, i think, because of their strong distinctions stylewise/visuell and the try, to create harmony or commonalities in between via the contrast ...

The wall of Arunski & Poet, showing a couple of collabo works of their vision of a transport (out of 3 different "Monotypie-Bombings" serie's) and the try of total controll of a series of acts, within the transport. that is documented in a shortclip.

in the center you see the small "tag-pack" box. Folded paper, where the removed color-pigments are packed from the transports.

Phos4 presented 4 new canvases, showing that his heart is still beating for stylewriting..

Matthias Wermke & Mischa Leinkauf  displayed a shortmovie..which i didnt had the time to really watch the whole film. But remember these names from Berlin, or better their shortmovies.  Symbolic, these guys interpretated or captured, for me the spirit of "getting up" in a complete new context.

the Backjumps Christmas collectors items "Krabbeltisch" 2013... 

The Wa presented a installation called "The Nest" (seen below) together with these pictures, Where the "doves" have the material taken from..

Dave the Chimp presented  a couple of great examples of unique and funny carneval mask designs,  seen weared on two picture frames..


Dave the chimp...

and Dave the chimp presented an (un)lucky (art)dip. where you could choose, for 10eurones a "surprise" package... 

Daniel Weißbach showed a serie of 3 canvases that looked first like glazed tile's, straight taken from the subway station, but on the second look you discover an ongoing anomaly within the gap's.  Another work from Daniel Weißbach was a manipulated piece of bricks hanging on the wall.
