C. R. McBerny is a new annual collaborative project held each year in Berlin, New York City and Manchester, which explores how contemporary painting, performance and writing might produce overtly emotional and demonstrative forms of discourse between intimate communities of artists and writers.

For the first edition, discrete objects and texts have been produced with a relaxed, informal, easy aestheticism in mind, one conducive to the warm non-institutional semi-domestic nature of each venue.

During 2018, performances, lectures, workshops and concerts will be included in C. R. McBerny’s activities, while a publication will be launched in December, co-produced by Hacienda Books (Zurich) / Slimvolume (London), and distributed worldwide by Cornerhouse Publications (Manchester).

A Matter Of Printing


A Matter Of Printing (for SMC)

23 March – 29 April 2018

A Matter Of Printing (for SMC) is a journey into the process and exercise of developing the concept of multiples as a democratic element of distribution of the work of art. With this approach the attempt to elaborate a political challenge through the strong and, somehow, limited possibilities of the unique artwork is placed. The multiple naturally comes as a possibility for a different way of communicating, often used in the past as a carrier of new ideas and often subversive or humorous intent.

The core of the exhibition are multiples published by the Edizioni Francesco Conz, a project the Italian collector – a mysterious impresario who strongly supported the artists of his time and that died in 2010 – started in the 70’s and continued until the 2000s. The Edizioni Conz will share the space with some of our favourite living artists and poets.

The exhibition will open on the 23rd of March at Supportico Lopez in Kurfürstenstrasse 14b. During the week-end of 27-29 of April, the exhibition will have a public program, Mass X, curated by The Performance Agency in the gallery’s courtyard.

“I had no pleasure in collecting ‘rich stuff’, already packed. I was looking for a more refined answer to my approach to art and the creative process behind it”
Francesco Conz

(Serpentine Streamers)

3rd floor

Opening: 9 February 18, 7 pm


As part of the accompanying program for the exhibition Stepping Stairs by Judith Hopf an own space is dedicated to the Luftschlangen (Serpentine Streamers) works by artist Annette Wehrmann (1961–2010) at the third floor at KW Institute for Contemporary Art. The presentation comprises replica of her Luftschlangen as well as audio recordings of her reading-performances. In the 1990s, Wehrmann implemented her Luftschlangen within self-organized artists’ spaces, where she read her texts—typed on paper streamer—along the windings and loops of the material. The texts unite everyday observations with philosophical and aesthetic inquiries. In her performances, Wehrmann created visual poetry in space, under the consideration of art in the social context. The artist realized her anarchical works by using ephemeral and cheap materials. She encountered socio-political questions with utopian, feminist, and even fantastic counter proposals.

9 March 18, 7 pm
The installation of Annette Wehrmann’s Serpentine Streamers closes with a reading of her writing by Judith Hopf combined with a screening of selected films by Wehrmann.

Made possible with the support of Ort des Gegen e. V./ Estate Annette Wehrmann

Starship @ Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg

Halle fuer Kunst cordially invites to


December 11, 2017 – December 17, 2017
Halle fuer Kunst Lüneburg
Reichenbachstrasse 2, 21335 Lüneburg


In the week from December 11 to 16, 2017, the Berlin art magazine Starship will be a guest at the Halle fuer Kunst Lüneburg, where they will work on a new issue to be published in January 2018. The last issues of Starship were also edited and produced in cooperation with institutions in a similarly open way upon the invitation of the Kunsthal Aarhus and the gallery Supportico Lopez in Berlin.

Starship, a magazine that has been published in Berlin since 1998, is not unusual in regard to its form and manner of editing, but it is nevertheless unique. It was established by artists and has been published by artists for close to 20 years. Such a long period of publication is not the rule for a self-financed art magazine. This is made possible by Starship’s institutional independence and a number of characteristic strategies and cooperation projects, including changing formats, exhibitions, an own publishing house and distribution, as well as a flexible publication frequency.
All works by the artists shown in Starship are original contributions for Starship. The production of the magazine therefore resembles that of an exhibition. Each new issue starts on a wall on which the artist’s contributions are set up in varying constellations for the period of two months. During this time, they are hung and re-hung, discussed and further developed with the artists. The theme of each issue of Starship evolves out of these discussions.
A basic element of Starship are the columnists. Columnists are writers and artists responsible for one part of Starship – their columns – in each issue. The long and varied list of columnists to date includes Amelie von Wulffen, Judith Hopf, Karl Holmqvist, Jakob Kolding, Mark von Schlegell, Tenzing Barshee, Hans-Christian Dany, Chris Kraus, Mercedes Bunz, Vera Tollmann, Stephanie Fezer, Florian Zeyfang, Christopher Mueller, and many others.

Since 2014, Starship has been edited by Gerry Bibby, Nikola Dietrich, Martin Ebner, Ariane Müller, and Henrik Olesen.

Martin Ebner and Ariane Müller will present the magazine, talk about the artists contributing to the next issue and play music on Friday, December 15, 2017, from 6 to 9pm.
Starship working at Kunsthalle Lüneburg is a public endeavour. We would like to invite you to take a look at how Starship is produced, browse through old issues and read new texts.
