28.04.2021, Artist Talk with Paz Guevara about the duo exhibition BIRDS AND BUOYS at Bärenzwinger Berlin with works by Nadja Abt and Barbara Marcel.
On 28 April 2021 from 6.30 to 8 pm, Bärenzwinger invited you to an online artist talk around the exhibition »Birds and Buoys«. The two participating artists, Nadja Abt and Barbara Marcel, each addressed their individual approach and presented some of the long-standing research that formed the background to their works on display at the Bärenzwinger. Abt and Marcel have independently of each other been working for many years on the transatlantic history of labour and culture in shipping, respectively mining.
Together with curator, researcher and author Paz Guevara and exhibition curator Katja Kynast, they explored the connections between their artistic works and questioned the ways in which they relate to the architecture and history of the Bärenzinger and its immediate neighbourhood including the historic harbour, the Marinehaus (former clubhouse of the Imperial Navy) and the Brazilian Embassy.
