West-Berlin / Art / 1980s
“No breather, history is made, it’s moving on” the Fehlfarben sing at the beginning of the 1980s, perhaps with an ironic side look at the “Höher, Weiter, Schneller ‘of the steadily progressing socialism behind the wall (in the GDR). No matter how much clairvoyance one wants to attest to the band; without wishing to do so, they wrote the hymn of the West-Berlin squatters, at the end of the decade everyone when the end of history was reached.
The fact that this has nevertheless turned further (in the spirit of the lyrics) and which historical lines can be drawn from the anti- and then-uplift mood until today is the framework for this exhibition, which deals with conceptual and subcultural tendencies of 1980s art in West -Berlin.
