In Christian iconography, paradise is usually depicted as a sheltered and flourishing garden in which man and nature are harmoniously united. Today, this archetypal idea seems more distant than ever, as our modern way of life is causing irreparable changes to the climate and nature.

The exhibition “FOOL’S PARADISE” thematises our own forlornness in the face of this situation as well as the human longing for a utopia and alternative reality. The young artists locate themselves “between doubt, ballast and utopia” and use painting, drawing and installation to describe paradise as a place where anything seems possible: “It overwhelms us, makes us foolish, pushes us to our personal limits”. KUNSTPUNKT BERLIN – RAUM FÜR AKTUELLE KUNST and weißensee kunsthochschule berlin cordially invite you to rediscover paradise through the perspectives of these young artists.
