For their exhibition “The truth ain’t waterproof” raumohneraum#8 at KUNSTPUNKT BERLIN, the curatorial team AIHM (Alien Is Human to Me) Alexander Weiss and Oliver Schmidt have selected artists who work in different media on current and unusual themes: Bettina Scholz, Paul Ferens, Khadda Madani, Alexander Weiss, Sadie Weis, Lola Gol̈ler, Oliver Schmidt, Timo Behn, Jutta Scheiner, and Stefan Roigk.
In this exhibition, themes and attitudes from unorthodox areas of life and art such as science fiction, computer games, spirituality, humour, total art and posthumanism are taken up to counter the consensus of a common reality with subjective positions. In the process, utopias are partially thematised and dismantled, methods of stratification and crystallisation, but also the sense of mission and credibility of such models satirised and sabotaged.
The artists rely on their direct access to the environment with the methods of aesthetics and the motifs of their own interests. The works oscillate between concrete representationalism and the reference to an abstruseness of content. On display are exhibits from the fields of painting, sculpture, photography, music, projection and installation or performance. We strive to ensure that everything that is not believed remains decorative.
The truth is not waterproof, but semi-permeable and sometimes sticky.
