> DESCRIPTION

 

The title of the exhibition “what is waiting out there” specifies the direction of its view: from within the art realm outward, at reality – a reality which simple explanatory models of the world no longer suffice to describe. Technological developments as well as global economic, political and social crises of the present have caused cracks in our reality, widened the gap between the world we talk about and the world that is really there. 

The works presented in the show reject the tendency – increasingly observable in art – to turn away from reality and toward art-immanent and formal problems. They counter this tendency by insisting on a stringent view of our present and its reality. 

With the selection of drawings and gouaches by the great nineteenth-century Realist Adolph Menzel, on display in the Alte Nationalgalerie|Old National Gallery, the contemporary works are juxtaposed with a historical approach intended to contextualize the direction of view taken by the 6th Berlin Biennale – outward, at what is waiting out there.
