10 Years Too Late
Opening: March 15th, 7-10pm
Address: Ackerstrasse 18, Berlin-Mitte
ABTEILUNG FÜR ALLES ANDERE a project of INSTITUT FÜR ALLES MÖGLICHE
In the course of making work, an artist has discoveries and insights through its creation. Curated by Caetlynn Booth and Tyson Washburn, “10 Years Too Late” is a group show for 10 days in Berlin, presenting current works that speak to the concept through subject matter, process, or insights that would have been useful to the artist 10 years ago, or to the audience. From each of these perspectives, this show asserts that 10 years too late is still right on time.

Reading of AM I WHITE, a play by Adrienne Dawes
English Theatre Berlin – Fidicinstraße 40, U6 Platz der Luftbrücke
When Neo-Nazi terrorist Wesley Connor returns to prison after a failed bomb plot, he is confronted with the two identities that threaten his position within the White Order of Thule most: fatherhood and his own mixed race heritage. Inspired by the true story of Leo Felton and Erica Chase, Am I White travels between linear narrative, recurring dreams and minstrel show nightmare to discover if a singular self exists in the post-modern, “post-racial” United States.

Elizabeth Skadden: Communist Cassette Tape Culture
23/05/2012 18:00- 19:30
In the Communist Bloc, cassette tapes occupied a unique role as the point of connection of an underground music network as forbidden Western music was dubbed to hundreds of tapes for distribution. Through my artistic practice I am researching the networks that existed to distribute these tapes and how subtle physical and audio variations created the personality of the music for the listener.
