Instinct.Berlin #5 _ Self destruction Poetry. Berlin, Germany.

Instinct.Berlin #5. Self destruction Poetry. Self destruction: Where to start?
Starting from zero seems like a very peaceful beginning, neutral. A new chapter with a wiser skin. But for that we need destruction, a constructive one, learning from our past self. This exhibition embraces the idea of the struggling artists and celebrates the darkness of their creative process. Here we wish to celebrate, as the heart of the exhibition, what is the misunderstood and questionable dichotomy between madness and brilliance. We look to unfold the ways we can grow due to and despite of our struggles. We don’t have all the answers. But we are participating in the conversation.Instinct.Berlin is an experimental and collective art project focused on discussing ideas of the male/masculinities as a physical, social and political construct in contemporary society as seen from an open spectrum of perspectives.Instinct.Berlin presents a bi-annual art exhibition & a residency program. Instinct.Berlin links artists internationally and brings together young as well as more experienced artists.Curated by Eric LeRouge, Instinct.Berlin#5 features 10 international artists from a variety of disciplines, including photography, drawing, painting, sound, performance and video: More:
