A JOURNEY TO THE EVROS / A TRIP TO THE MERIC

Friday, 26.6.2015, at 8pm
at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm guided storytelling tours

bi’baxchange #05 invites  Birgit Auf der Lauer und Caspar Pauli with their current project to the project space bi’bak.
In a storytelling tour the artists guide us through the installation and present things from different countries and their invisible stories. On a trip along the border river Evros (Meric in Turkish) between Greece and Turkey,  in the summer of 2014 with the group Kaba Hat they gathered objects, plants and garbage in order to remember the stories, places and fates of the European border region.

Birgit Auf der Lauer and Caspar Pauli  are working together since 2010. They are interested in the artistic representation of historical, aesthetic and political levels of urban and rural areas. After detailed research, they work with different forms of expression such as installation, drawing and performance. For their work they receive regular promotions and awards. Together with the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum in Berlin they run the Kanuclub zur Erforschung der Stadt.

KABA HAT are a group of 9 artists from Istanbul. They try to find ways for collaborative artistic production as well as proposing ways of exhibiting outside the gallery space. Their work deals with issues such as urban politics, travelling/tourism and economies of art industry. It can take many forms, from public video screenings, to performances or publication.
