SURVIVE! – Who and what is taking shape here?
Alongside museums, galleries, and other kinds exhibition spaces, art project spaces and initiatives are an important factor in Berlin’s art scene and they have a unique artistic mission. Real estate and capital markets are putting pressure on the scene, so that project space initiators struggle to defend their spaces and survive. Their independence allows for a certain kind of distance from the market pressure of commercial galleries. But herein lies a dilemma: How to survive and retain the power to act?

Danila Tkachenko ∇ Restricted Areas
The series «Restricted Areas» was realized by Danila Tkachenko in 2013-2015. It shows the human impulse towards utopia, the endeavour for perfection through technological progress. For «Restricted Areas», Danila Tkachenko travelled thousands of kilometers in search of places which used to be of great importance for the idea of technological progress in the former Soviet Union. These places have lost their significance, along with the utopian ideology they emerged from and which has become obsolete in the end of the last century. Tkachenko’s photographs bear witness of what remains after the progress has come to a halt.
30 years after Tschernobyl, the biggest nuclear catastrophe in history, FOTOGALERIE Friedrichshain and Danila Tkachenko combine efforts to reconsider their common socialist heritage.
The exhibition at FOTOGALERIE Friedrichshain will present a deeper perspective on «Restricted Areas», complementing it with archival material and additional data, cultural and historical references to the objects in the series.
