What is this project all about?
The exhibition titled “One man's garden is another man's
house”, which will take place on May 31 and June 23, 2013 at
7pm at Kugelbahn/ Kolonie Wedding, aims to explore the notion of
appearance and disappearance throughout the surroundings of the
Our performance and exhibition location, Kolonie Wedding, is situated near the Berlin Wall, which today is used as a local recreation area.
The building itself, a sort of pavilion, is located near the animated Osloer Straße. In its early years the building was a bar with a bowling alley in the basement. Now it is a café with its own gallery and venue.
The first part of developing this work will happen through silent walks in and around Kolonie Wedding. Residents of the area will be invited to join us. We will capture our surroundings through field recordings, drawings, photos, video recordings and our memory. We will also interview residents in the area on the abstract subject of appearance and disappearance.
These materials will then become the basis for our performances on May 31 (Vernissage) and on June 23 (Finissage) 2013. During this performance we will bring the stories, sounds, movements and textures inside the Kugelbahn, by using documentation, pencil drawings, chalk, watercolor, movements of the body, field recordings, and live music.
The aim of the performance is to transform the appearance and disappearance of lines, sounds, movements and atmosphere from the location.
At the end of the exhibition period, the Kugelbahn will return to its normal form. Overwriting our traces until everything is how it was or perhaps never was.
The memory of the performance, the visited locations, and the past stays…
After the performance at the Finissage there will be a conversation with the audience on the theme of appearance and reappearance.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
Our aim for this project is to model our work and methodology in
and around Kolonie Wedding as an interdisciplinary performance for
the residents living in that area of Berlin.
The performance will be inspired by the concept of appearance and disappearance, and will be shaped by material found in and around the venue’s surroundings.
Once we have gathered these materials we will rearrange, break, and reinforce the audience’s attention through interactions and improvisations between the members of possible.movement.
In order to achieve this we want to include the participation of any residents who express interest in our project.
The exchange between the performers and the public is of the utmost importance, as it will reflect transformational processes of the venues surroundings, as well as showing different possibilities between the performers and the audience.
Why would you support this project?
To help add to and make people conscious of the nuances in their
environment, and in the process open them up to alternative methods
of performance and improvisation.

Who are the people behind the project?
possible.movement / artistic research
The ensemble possible.movement is a collaboration between the artists Ingolf Watzlaw (visual art), Daniel Vezza (composition), Claudia Garbe (choreography) and Johanne Castillo Bro (documentation).
Our goal is to develop an artistic praxis by researching the interface between graphic, sound, and movement, and present the results in performances and installations.
possible.movement understands art as a varied entity, which is used to enable experience and provoke the audience.
The intention of possible.movement is to let the audience discover new experiences in relation to interplay between sound, space, graphic, and movement.
possible.movement concerns itself with the interface between
choreography, drawing and composition. For the last four years the
group has spent time searching for a language between different art
forms. The context between movement, sound, and graphic, as well as
between composition, improvisation and notation is of primary
interest for the group.
