The exhibition Archipel (Archipelago) is the first solo show of Berlin architect Arno Brandlhuber (born in 1964) at an art institution. Brandlhuber has transformed the exhibition space at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein into an insular urban landscape made of concrete (with various additional substances) using elements from previous exhibitions: Karin Sander’s drillings (2011) serve as openings for the pouring concrete and Olafur Elliason’s Forever Lamp (2011) from the exhibition The Future Archive (2012) provides the lighting. The concrete in the exhibition space grows into an abstract urban landscape of Berlin consisting of several linked units that can be entered by the visitor. The mirrored walls amplify the spatial effect of insularity. By reusing and re-inscribing extant elements, a collage of various time-space interventions is created according to the principle of architectural restructuring. In addition, the soundtrack of an advertisement from Philippe Starck’s architecture and design project Yoo Berlin can be heard. Neuer Berliner Kunstverein and Arno Brandlhuber began their collaboration in 2011: in an election campaign poster (RGB 165/96/36 CMYK 14/40/80/20) for the local Berlin elections (available as an n.b.k. Edition), Brandlhuber demanded alternatives from policy makers to construction plans and the linked social order.
