In between: Bilder, kulturelle Codes und Disziplinen, Verbales und Nonverbales – das Projekt “Pattern & Signs” bewegt sich zwischen vielen Koordinaten. Auch seine Realisierung in Berlin entspricht einem Dazwischen, genauer gesagt: dem Ineinandergreifen der zwei unterschiedlichen Formate Workshop und Ausstellung. Elf internationale Künstlerinnen und Künstler waren eingeladen, sich gemeinsam mit Schülerinnen und Schülern des Menzel-Gymnasiums zum Thema Muster und Zeichen auseinanderzusetzen und gleichzeitig ihre Arbeiten in einer umfangreichen Ausstellung zur Diskussion zu stellen. Thematischer Ausgangspunkt sind Muster, wie sie sich nicht nur in ästhetischen, sondern auch in kulturellen, historischen und sozialen Strukturen abbilden. Diese Vielschichtigkeit des Themas greift das Projekt “Pattern & Signs” auf, indem es interdisziplinäre Zugänge eröffnet und nicht nur im Bereich der bildenden Kunst, sondern ebenso in Musik, Soziologie und Naturwissenschaften auf Spurensuche geht.

Pattern & Signs convey historical, cultural as well as social structures. To be aware of and reflect their correlation is a fundamental prerequisite for the liveliness and quality of human coexistence. The exhibition project “Pattern & Signs” deals with this task. It derives from a cross-generational network of artists coming from Thailand, China, India, Cameroon, Bulgaria, Romania and Germany. The artists live and work between the continents; they act “in transit”. In their works they question their state of being “in between” and reflect on an intercultural dialogue and its aesthetic means of expression against the background of their own cultural roots. Pattern & Signs convey historical, cultural as well as social structures.
