PAUL KUIMET / NINA SCHUIKI – "Space Coordinates"
PAUL KUIMET / NINA SCHUIKI
Opening: Thursday, 11 January 2018, 5–8 pm
Exhibiton: 12 January – 03 March 2018
Curated by Nico Anklam
Space Coordinates presents works by Nina Schuiki and Paul Kuimet that condense as sequences of photography or sculpture in space. These serial results often remain arrested in the form of an infinite loop or seem to circle infinitely onward. Both artists share an interest in these issues: they encounter one another for the first time in the exhibition Space Coordinates.
ANNA K.E. & FLORIAN MEISENBERG – "Late Checkout (West Berlin)"

ANNA K.E. & FLORIAN MEISENBERG
Late Checkout (West Berlin)
Opening: Saturday, 04 November 2017, 6–9 pm
Exhibiton: 07 November – 22 December 2017
WNTRP is proud to present Late Checkout (West Berlin), Anna K.E. and Florian Meisenberg’s first collaborative exhibition in Berlin.
Dolls with a wide smile in a twisted pose lie carelessly thrown down on the floor.
Inspired by Haba retro style toys – “Inventor for inquisitive minds” they have become the choice for liberal American parents. Like the children’s book character "Raggedy Andy“ they seem to come to life when nobody is present.
A metal structure strives upwards like a massive antenna out of the drawings’ frame, wrapped around by sloppy black checkered canvas and sutures of blue vinyl wire. A hint of technocracy gives the innocent doll images something of snapshots of a monitoring camera in a children’s room. Where protection crosses the fine line into panopticism, imposed constraints petrify the unleashed souls and at the same time spark their inflammatory disobedience. (...)
With "L’Été plus vaste que l’Empire…" WNTRP presents a summer groupshow which also takes place at WENTRUP.
Participating artist are Björn Braun, Günther Förg, Mary Heilmann, Gregor Hildebrandt, Barbara Kasten, Friedrich Kunath, John McAllister, Florian Meisenberg, Oliver Osborne, David Renggli, Daniel Richter, Kathleen Ryan, Wilhelm Sasnal, Kathrin Sonntag, He Xiangyu.
Zanele Muholi Somnyama Ngonyama
Opening: 28 April 2017, 6–9 pm
Exhibition: 29 April – 17 June 2017
WNTRP shows Muholi’s current series Somnyama Ngonyama (Zulu for: hail the black lioness), in which she stages herself in multiple identities for the camera. After stops in the Stevenson Gallery in Cape Town and the Luma Foundation in Arles, these works can be seen for the first time in Germany.
For the past two years, Christopher Kline has been working on, O.K., an ongoing project based around the history and lore of the artist’s hometown of Kinderhook, New York. While the project often manifests as installations, artworks or texts, the linchpin has become the creation of an expansive community theatre musical developed slowly, scene by scene, over several years through workshops, performances and even a “TV show”, synthesizing and expanding on Kinderhook’s mythology to construct a fresh overview of local history.
At WNTRP, Kline presents O.K. – The Musical (The Many Ghosts of Martin Van Buren), a scene of puppet theatre from that larger work which depicts the late President Martin Van Buren sitting in his study at his Kinderhook home Lindenwald.
exhibition ends 21 January 2017
HICHAM BERRADA - "Les Fleurs"
September 15, 2016
Hicham Berrada's videos, installations and objects often make the phenomena of nature as their own, or they form processes from natural scientific experiments. Berrada imitates, in the spaces he designs, conditions of nature and then moves them from their original context into the exhibition space.
