A short film about the Berlin Olympic Village Project
In September 2015, myself and artists Margaret Cahill, Wolf Bertram Becker and Peter Lewis, were invited to visit the site of the 1936 Berlin Olympic Village by its current owner, DKB Stiftung für Gesellschaftliches Engagement Berlin, and Palis Advisory GmbH Berlin, who initiated and organised the project.
We have spent the past year producing work in response to the site, and Berlin 1936 is the first UK exhibition of the Project.
The first showing of the work took place in Berlin at DKB Deutsche Kreditbank’s headquarters during July and August 2016 and was transferred to the Gymnasium at the Village itself for Germany’s ‘Day of the Open Monument’ in September 2016.
This expanded UK edition of the Project includes painting, printmaking, collage, video and 3D pieces and features previously unseen and specially produced new work.
You are cordially invited to the Manchester Launch of In Camera at the
International Anthony Burgess Study Foundation in Manchester.
