“The End of the Game” Bob Gerson (Part of “One Minute #11)

C.A.R. Video Lounge [Hall 12] presented by Directors Lounge: ONE MINUTE VOLUME #11

A moving image programme curated by Kerry Baldry.

Kerry Baldry is an artist filmmaker and curator. Over the last 14 years she has also been compiling and organising screenings of artists moving image titled One Minute. An eclectic mix of work made within the duration of one mInute by artists at varying stages of their careers. These compilations have been screened worldwide and a part of The British Film Institute national archive.

“Since 2007 Kerry regularly curate these programmes, compiling a tremendously varied collection of sixty second films for each. Kerry seems to have an intuitive grasp of how to curate numerous short pieces into engaging and coherent self-contained programmes. By ‘intuitive’ I mean that while they never follow any contrived curatorial agenda, beyond their duration, in spite of their variety and diversity nothing ever seems forced or obvious on one hand, random or haphazard on the other. The other remarkable aspect of the programmes is the artists involved, many of whom have contributed work to all or most of the volumes, and many of whom are friends and colleagues of mine, indeed I have contributed films to a number of previous volumes. In this sense the One Minutes also represent a community of artists, and a self-determining one; this is a labor of love, put together without funding or the expectation of payment, but like all the best cultural endeavors because doing the work itself is worth it.” Steven Ball, artist and curator

A&O Gallery Booth, [Hall 5 | 7 ]

Gallery A & O was opened in West Berlin in 1989, after two years of guerrilla activities. After reunification, the gallery moved to the center of East Berlin. In the new space, a former cowshed, the focus of the exhibition shifted from media to site-specific installations. The gallery closed in 1997. A & O continued to curate and exhibit in temporary spaces and partner projects.

Since 2005, our main public platform has been the Berlin-based Directors Lounge contemporary art and media

Since 2022, we have been propagating a creative, ethical approach to artificial intelligence, developing artistic concepts against the disappearance of the real and facilitating an open discourse on the design of a completely new future.

WK, founded by artists for artists:  Walden Kunstausstellungen realizes exhibitions of international contemporary art with the main focus on tendencies in Berlin, and with a view to international developments. WK is a non-commercial project space and therefore independent. Since the project was founded, over 250 exhibitions have taken place, unconventional positions in contemporary discourse. WK represents an expanded concept of art. Space is material, can be understood as something malleable. Walden is a sculpture.
