Ursula Döbereiner is a fine artist who investigates the relationship between image and the medium of drawing, drawing and space in a variety of ways. Through drawing, she probes into the construction of public and private space and the means by which images are received through various media. Her point of departure is to inquire into how collective social notions and individual private desires, fears, and yearnings are manifested in media images, advertisements, surfaces, architecture, and decisions in urban planning. The core of her work lies in the reciprocal contingency between the material represented and the means of representation as well as in a critical reflection on the medium of drawing.

Rüdiger Lange worked for ten years in the context of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program. In 1997 he took over the artistic direction for the Volksbühne’s PAVILLON at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. There, he realized exhibitions and projects, always with focus on artistic process in (semi-)public spaces.

At the same time he was responsible for PARABOLICA SPACES – a complex of buildings in Berlin-Mitte temporarily used as cultural venue until 2001. Another important project was the development of an extensive cultural agenda in the former Heeresbäckerei in Berlin-Kreuzberg. From 2002 to 2005 Lange figured out a various program of artistic productions operating under the label heeresbaeckerei-kultur. Additionally, he ran a club for advanced elctronic music. Both projects were performed in close cooperation with the particular real estate developer.

As co-founder of the Art Fair PREVIEW BERLIN he created a platform for emerging galleries. PREVIEW BERLIN is dedicated to the promotion of young positions. It explores new formats for mediation in the art market.

Rüdiger Lange has curated numerous solo and group exhibitions in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, South Korea, Canada, the US and Great Britain, such as BERLIN – LONDON 2001 in the ICA Institute for Contemporary Art London. As owner and artistic director of GALERIE LOOP – RAUM FÜR AKTUELLE KUNST he offers a continous exhibition program since 1997. Currently he presents Standard International – #1 Post Spatial Surfaces / #2 Post Spatial Devices at Geisberg Berlin.

Working with film as a participatory tool, Stine Marie Jacobsen designs educational projects that deal with ethics, identity, control, fear and trust and aim to raise solidarity and civic engagement through community involvement. With a BFA from CalArts, a MFA from The Royal Danish Art Academy and recently a peace and conflict resolution certificate from Chula University, she is based in Berlin.

Some of her notable solo shows have been at Galerie Wedding, 2016, Berlin, Germany, Overgaden institute of contemporary art, 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark, District Kunst- und Kulturförderung, 2014, Berlin, Galway Arts Center, 2014, Galway, Ireland, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, 2012, Berlin. Selected group shows consist of Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast, Momentum Biennale 2013, Moss, Norway, Either Or Nikolaj Kunsthal, 2013, Copenhagen, Idyll Turku Biennale, Turku, Finland, The 10th OPEN International Performance Festival, 2009, Beijing.

In 2012 Jacobsen was a resident at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Residencias Artisticas, National University Bogotá and Air Antwerpen. In 2014, she started collaborating with District Berlin and social organisation Gangway and was jury selected for Berlin Art Week. In 2015, she was awarded an Innovators Grant, a two months research and study in art creativity and education by Node Curatorial Studies, where she now also teaches a course called ‘Socially engaged Art Projects’. In 2016, she launched www.artistsexercises.org – a collective sharing and donation platform, which facilitates new ways of teaching for other educators. Same year she was awarded a peace Fellowship by the Rotary Foundation and nominated for the Berlin Art Prize.

Jacobsen develops learning tools in order to create community and to expand the use of art. Besides following a Rancierian approach turning ‘teachers’ into ‘students’ and vice versa and participants to collaborators, her educational methods are attention, intimacy and improvisation and to value participants’ integrity.

The Berlin based artist duo Various & Gould works in close collaboration since 2005. After studying at the Berlin-Weissensee School of Art, the artists graduated under the tutelage of Prof Alex Jordan in 2010.

Various & Gould’s creation is based on the simple but striking formula 1+1=3. Whilst methods of screen-printing and collage are their speciality, their art can also emerge in a public performance or an installation as they like crossing borders and do not stick to a certain medium. Mutual passions including their love of paper, enthusiasm for accidental beauty in everyday life and art in urban space form the core of their artistic practice.

Various & Gould often deal with socially prominent themes such as work, migration, gender, death, religion or the financial crisis in a playful, intuitive manner. Influenced by (political) poster graphics, Dada and Pop Art, vivid colors combined with typography and encrypted messages are the characteristics of their work.
