CARCAJADAS. Lachen zum Empowerment

We are glad to present the event “CARCAJADAS. Lachen zum Empowerment” under the motto “laughter as an empowerment tool”, which will take place on the 17th of November, at 18h30, at Hotel Gat Point Charlie.

It will be an evening of performances with:
Silent Rocco – pantomime, StudioIN – video-essay, Valeria Schwarz – performance installation (DE), Berlin ES Impro – theatrical improvisation (ES/DE), Paul Salamone & friends Liliana Velásquez, Ben MacLean, Jonas Imam – Standup comedy (EN/DE/ES).

Laughter involves movement, changing one’s state, a journey that the body cannot avoid once it has begun. While we laugh, we detach ourselves from any spiritual and mundane burden: the body that laughs experiments the freedom within it. Laughter is contagious, it expands itself and spreads to other bodies in which solidifies the eco of what made them laugh at first. Moreover, it is a tool with which we can shape something of our inner world and of the world surrounding us.

With “CARCAJADAS. Lachen zum Empowerment” we aim to spread awareness about the capability laugh has to empower each other, to find freedom in a moment, to create links with those who are surrounding us, whether we know them or not. And we will do so by laughing!

*“CARCAJADAS. Lachen zum Empowerment” is a project developed by Studio IN (Carla Isern, Cristina Navarro) with the collaboration of the Embassy of Spain in Berlin and Hotel Gat Point Charlie.

Tr(a)ümmerfrauen – art exhibition

Tr(a)ümmerfrauen exhibition
Concha Argüeso, Lucila Bristow y Maru Carranza
Vernissage: Friday, 21 September at 19h
Gat Point Charlie, Mauerstrasse 81-82
10117 Berlin

We are glad to invite you to the Vernissage of Tr(a)ümmerfrauen exhibition with Concha Argüeso, Lucila Bristow y Maru Carranza at Gat Point Charlie.

The title arises from the figure of the Trümmerfrauen (literally translated as rubble women) and the word in German „Träume“, which means dream.

Trümmerfrauen is the name for women who, in the aftermath of World War II, helped clear the debris and reconstructed the bombed cities of Germany and Austria.

With this idea, the exhibition shows the works of three Spanish artists, in their different styles, means and energy on their dreams. Migrant women who have been living in Berlin for more than 15 years and whose identities and practices are taking part of the ongoing multicultural formation of the city.

Curated by Ana Sanchez de Vivar and Lucila Bristow

Please confirm your attendance to the Vernissage via email to sales.berlin@gatrooms.com before 19.09.2018.

About Concha Argüeso

Abstraction is for Concha Argüeso a metamorphosis of objectivity through a physical and emotional creative process. Visible are the constant repetitive gestures with brush, pen and drippy candle wax. They follow the artist’s current perception, who works slowly and concentrated until the work of art gains its own meaning. In her works the essence of a form is carved out. Their forms seem to breathe slowly and, in the pulse of passing time, bring the observer to the essence of being. Concha Argüeso succeeds, in different spatial situations and with different materials, taking a substantial look at the things that spread in front of us, both poetically and questioningly.

About Lucila Bristow

Lucia Bristow works with different media like illustration, photography, silkscreen, collage and head pieces. She takes advantage of the informative forces of the images. That is the reason why she is concerned about the cultural aspects and meanings transforming them into symbols.
Bristow converts the original photographic models and elements into minimalistic and colorful digital illustrations, in which the viewer is nearly forced to discover details in order to appreciate the metaphoric interpretations inside each image.
Themes like nature, social issues and pop culture are the basis of her work.

About Maru Carranza

Maru is a mixed media artist, illustrator, photographer and filmmaker, with an extensive background developing videos, animations, and web content for clients in art, architecture and fashion.
She arrived at her practice with an aesthetic sense in the art of challenge the perception of tenderness, solitude, nostalgia, seduction and desire.
Her artworks often show the privacy of the loneliness in relationships between women and places. Architectural and film backgrounds strongly influenced her approach to spatial concerns, surrounding and reflecting her self-image. Lately she focuses more on textile art, inspired by traditional crafts and fashion. She also works on commissioned projects and hosts embroidery, quilting, textile printing and weaving workshops in her studio in Berlin, Germany.



Exhibition: Frequency’s Synchronies

Our exhibition at Gat Point Charlie, organized by Karne Kunst, is called “Frequency’s synchronies” by Spanish illustrator Sandra Fiz and Venezuelan DJ Claudio Pérez-Füves, aka Drrk’s Secnd.

The vernissage was on Friday, August 17th at 7pm at the hotel. “The work of the artists consists of an audio-visual project which explores the different stages of a relationship through songs reflected in images. Feelings like falling in love, the sensation of being reborn, conflict, or even hatred, are some of the emotions that are illustrated in a song and on a paper. An exhibition that especially music lovers of rock, post punk, or psychedelic among other genres, will really appreciate” (Karne Kunst).

This exhibition was curated by Marcela Villanueva and produced by Karne Kunst.

Artists’ CV:
Sandra Fiz, artist based in Berlin since September 2017, completed her training as an illustrator at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Madrid and the IED of the same city. Her work has been exhibited in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Russia and China.
