Group Show in Berlin
Nothing´s gonna change my world?
13 August – 5 September 2021
non-profit gallery: gr_und,
Seestr. 49, 13347 Berlin
Daniel Hahn and Johannes Mundinger, from Raum www, have asked 230 artists four questions each, to create a picture of how visual artists have come through the pandemic – so far – and what their predictions are for the future, in relation to art.
The answers form the interactive exhibition, opening on 13 August 2021 at gr_und, Seestr. 49, 13347 Berlin.
Accompanying the exhibition is a catalogue depicting all the answers, with a foreword by Laura Helena Wurth and a greeting by Berlin’s Senator for Culture Klaus Lederer.
270 pages, with cardboard cover, printed by Druckhaus Sportflieger in Berlin.
Supported by Neustart Kultur, the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, BBK Bundesverband.
About two thirds of the artists interviewed live in Berlin. About 130 are female*, about 100 male*. The answers are German or English, depending on the artist.
All artists can be found at www.raumwww.de, a playful online archive that has been collecting exhibitions and cultural projects that had to be cancelled, postponed or closed due to the pandemic since the beginning of the first lockdown in 2020.
In this Dropbox folder you can find further information regarding exhibitoin, catalogue and Raum www. (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xk7twgunl8sh1hy/AAAbh2n2MSlotDiRWVTPB25pa?dl=0)

So the focus is less on artistic works and more on answering the four questions:
1 How much were you affected by the lockdowns and how did you deal with the situation?
2 How has your work situation and working method changed as a result?
3 How do you assess the changes for art and the art world?
4 What impact do you think the pandemic has had on the importance of art for society?

Raum www is an online archive collecting exhibitions and cultural projects that had to be cancelled, postponed or closed due to the pandemic.
It was founded at the beginning of the first lockdown in March 2020, by Berlin based artists Daniel Hahn and Johannes Mundinger:
A hierarchy-free surface that can be scrolled in all directions (comparable to Google Maps), shows a picture of each artist’s work, that can be zoomed in to full screen. A pop-up menu informs about the artist, the work and the exhibition.
The accompanying instagram account features various artists with single posts and updates on openings that can and could take place.
In addition to collecting cancelled exhibitions, Raum www also organise some by itself.
After an exhibition in a park (Auerpark, June 2020), in a gallery in Berlin-Mitte (Galerie Neurotitan, October 2020), in the shop window of a Neukölln project space (HilbertRaum December 2020), a touring exhibition that was raffled off to private households („Hausarbeit“ March to May 2021), Nothing’s gonna change my world? is the fifth exhibition under the virtual roof of Raum www.
