On the upper floor of the palace, Kirsten Johannsen, Bärbel Schlüter and Birgit Szepanski show installations, objects and photographs of urban explorations. In some places, the exhibition draws attention to the perception of the city. In their respective working methods, the artists take up urban observations for site-related works: their atmospheres, their aesthetic spaces of experience, and their history(s).

All 21 artists of this exhibition have or had their place of work in Marzahn-Hellersdorf for a while. Some works thematize the traces of this place, of the studio - others question the artistic work itself. Is arriving a goal, a longing, or a state that must always be redefined? Arriving in this exhibition also means arriving at Schloss Biesdorf, a new Berlin gallery. Works by: Charlotte Duale, Stephan von Arx, Robert Kipping, Thomas Bratzke, Maurice de Martin, Lukas Oertel, Thomas Wagner, Christian Schellenberger, Sascha Hundorff (with Anna Herms and Steve Paul Steven Paul), Wadim Hermann, Enikö Marton, Carola Rümper, Thomas Prochnow, An Seebach, Christiane Stegat, Daniel Wolter, Tobias Löffler, Irene Pätzug, Anne Michaux, Caroline Wagner, Ramon Muggli (curated by Karin Scheel)

A graphic folder work from Kunstarchiv Beeskow
The new exhibition presented by Kunstarchiv Beeskow is dedicated to the graphic artist Dieter Tucholke (1934-2001) who intensively and critically addressed German history from an East German perspective. The focus is on his graphic sequence "Negativbilder" [negative images] about Prussian history that he created in 1980-81 and which is one of his most famous works.
The artist is focused on the weaknesses and vices of the Prussian kings, since he deeply distrusted their so-called virtues. With an imagery that still fascinates today, Tucholke assembled the portraits from symbols and objects, which are accompanied by short mocking texts.
