As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth […] he spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he anointed the man’s eyes with the mud and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam”. […] So he went and washed and came back seeing. (John, 9)

Relief projections, videocollages and sculptures – specially created for the exhibition – will be presented in an ambitious mixed media installation for the very first time. The show is the official start of a new production cycle by Ulu Braun.
From April 28th, a large sludge slide will flood the rosalux art space in the Wriezener Strasse (Wedding district, Berlin) and mutate the White Cube into a psychogrammatic cave where the insatiable need to know and understand everything and the blind law of „business as usual“ will be temporarily neutralized.

Ulu Braun (born in 1976) is a German visual artist and filmmaker. His video collages and films are situated along the boundary between contemporary art and film d’auteur. Last shows: Welcome to the Jungle, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; 12×12, Ulu Braun, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin 2015; Vidéo-collages, Prospectif Cinéma, Centre Pompidou, Paris 2016. Awards: Deutscher Kurzfilmpreis in Gold 2013; Berlin Art Prize 2014

 
 

 

 

 

10 years project space rosalux

Performorange, video performance, Vitor Lago Silva, 2004

10 years ago – on 15 March 2007 – rosalux showed videos of the Portuguese artist Vitor Lago Silva (1971-2013).

This was the beginning of our program as a project space, initially in a studio located in a basement, then in a beautiful venue at the corner of the Elisabethkirchstraße in Berlin-Mitte and later, from 2009, in Berlin-Wedding.
Before, rosalux had already been present as a web platform presenting original web art projects by international artists since 1999 – at a time when few still actively used the World Wide Web.

10 years project space rosalux with works by over 250 international artists, 20 of them presented their first solo exhibition in Berlin or Germany.

We are proud of our achievement and would like to thank all the artists, curators and project developers, who have expanded our horizons through their original and diverse formats, approaches and inputs and have encouraged our public and ourselves to think and debate.

We would also like to thank the loyal audience, colleagues and press representatives in Germany and abroad, who have accompanied us in all these years, as well as the many volunteer helpers, interns and consultants.

We look forward to more exciting exhibitions.
