Cca Climbing Performance

Vojtěch Fröhlich: “In the space of Academy of Fine Art I made replicas of interiors eguipment like switches, lights, another clock or reproduction of the reproduction of Eugen Delacroix’s “Le Massacre de Scio”. All of these objects I tried to install without notion of public. On the opening, I came to school, wear on special climbing shoes and climbed the created path, while use all of these small interventions and replicas of original objects as a climbing holds. I started at the main entrance of the building and ending point was our studio of intermedia studies located on 3rd floor. The whole path I climbed without touching the ground of academy.”

Solo – Lost at Sea

On January 11, 2007, Andrew McAuley set out on his quest to become the first person to kayak from Australia to New Zealand across one of the wildest and loneliest stretches of ocean on Earth. On February 9, New Zealand maritime authorities received his distress call. Having survived a harrowing and torturous month at sea, conquering monstrous swells and terrifying storms, McAuley lost his life only a day from completing his journey. His body was never recovered, but the camera tapes from his kayak were and they form the basis of this moving and questioning portrait of a complex man, his family, his supporters and his attempt to conquer the ferocious Tasman Sea.


20357, a 3D piece of graffiti by Heiko Zahlmann, has been located in the Karolienen Square since 2009. A bird’s eye view of the piece allows one to recognize the postal code of the neighbourhood. From ground level it serves as a multifunctional and usable sculpture for residents and visitors.

Practically however, the sculpture is not intended for everyone as is made bluntly evident by the anti-skate nobs which were installed on the object. Skaters were deemed too loud, dangerous, annoying and inappropriate. And so the use of metal stoppers by the Municipality Mitte was an attempt to effectively deal with residents complaints. This was however done without the artist’s consultation or consent, and is clearly and directly a damage to the work.

Thus the anti-skate nobs were removed, and the original condition of the sculpture was restored. Skaters however continue to be refused the use of the supposedly freely accessable and public sculpture. The surrounding floor area of the artwork was so rebuilt in order to completely impede any skating.

But maybe not as well as it could…

The Acrobatic Fly

Von Percy Smith aus dem Jahr 1910.

Propped upon the tail-end of a match, a housefly performs astonishing feats, alternately juggling a series of objects – a blade of grass, a cork, a miniature dumbbell… Most extraordinary of all is the sequence in which the fly spins a ball twice its own size, while a second fly perches on top. In the final sequence, the fly repeats some of its earlier tricks while apparently seated on a tiny chair.
