Interview - Meet the Artist

Marcia Vaitsman

The last 3 years Marcia has been writing and researching images of displacement, which resulted in a PhD thesis and several studio projects. Her interest lies in vast empty spaces, slow paces and reduced color pallets. Thematically her practice is rooted in displacement, migration, miscegenation and how the body-mind copes with disorientation.

The interest in science, researching digital media and the observation of mass and social media are a part of the search for a “map” or method, as she tries to understand how people form their collectives and identities. These concepts and processes converge into single channel videos, installations and photographs.

Interview - Meet the Artist

Victor Artiga

Victor Artiga´s recent body of work explores the omnipresence of the digital screen and its phenomenological effect on the human body. His work often incorporates devices through which we experience images such as, digital screens, projector, in sculptural installations, which merge flatten spaces with three-dimensional space.

Having a fluid relation between sculpture, screen and works on paper he proposes, that we currently experiment a degree of affect in the way we interpret the hectic circulation of images and are trying to come to term with its new iterations.
The two dimensional work is created through the use of hand made processes like collage, transfers, silkscreen and drawing. Victor intends to inspect the connection between the lexicon of image editing software and the human body.

Artist Talk


Informal practices in the public space
Kap Hoorn with Oscar Ardila

@ GlogauAIR
The Tertulias are held in Spanish
Please confirm your attendance on the facebook event

Facebook event

Presented by: Oscar Ardila

A review of how fine arts have recently been able to shape and consolidate informal spaces of participation in urban and rural settings in Colombia. These spaces have acknowledged the urgency of implementing devices to promote democratic participation; setting up a frame for minimum standards of citizen behaviour or the strengthening of representative platforms for collectivities framed in a time of post-conflict.

Oscar Ardila Luna:
(Bucaramanga - Colombia, 1977)

Artist and art historian who’s work revolves around the contemporary artistic representations of memory in public spaces. His research include citizen and artistic initiatives that take place in Colombia and Germany. Among his publications, “La Imposibilidad de la Naturaleza: Arte y naturaleza en el arte colombiano contemporáneo 1991 - 2003" y “Campos de Memoria: Intervenciones artísticas en el espacio público en Colombia 2000 - 2011” can be highlighted.
Recently, he was awarded the Investigation in Visual Arts Grant from the Ministry of Cultural Affairs of Colombia to work in relation to the Performance Festival in Cali. He studied Fine Arts at the National University of Colombia where he later was awarded a master’s a degree in “The Theory of History and Art, Architecture and the City”. He also holds a master’s degree in Art in Context from the University of Fine Arts in Berlin. Currently, he is part of the artistic project Citizen Art Days. He resides in Berlin.


The Self Manipulated

Furst, Ori and Alberto Yusta

11.05.2018 - 13.05.2018
Opening 19:00 Friday 11th May 2018
@ @Glogauair

In this exhibition we are presenting two new collaborative audiovisual works. The installation ‘A Liquid Being’ is based on the metaphor of the self as a vessel for containing liquid. A principle attribute of liquid is that it modifies its shape to adapt to the form of the container, in this instance a self whose form is modified by its own system of self containment. ‘The Ship of Fools’, a three projector work, takes its title from Plato’s political and psychological metaphor of the state or self, as a sea vessel captained by a competing mob of fools.

With the aid of an artist's development grant our intention was to develop a prototype audio visual installation that was agile and easy to adapt to occupy large irregular spaces or to be contracted to function as a smaller stand-alone piece amongst other works, in other words not constrained by the typical restrictions of projection on a wall or screen. Part of our work has been the search for an interesting adaptable surface to project onto and working on the visual techniques that take advantage of this surface medium. Another objective was the development of a fluid creative process between the visual (Furst and Ori) and the audio and technical elements with the composer (Alberto Yusta). On the whole our preference is to keep visual effects ‘in-camera’ as opposed to digital post production, but an integral part of our working process with Yusta has been the introduction of some digital programming to sensitise the visuals to the audio during the edit.

Furst and Ori are the British and Italian visual artists Sergei Furst and Francesca Ori. Their primary mediums are painting and sculpture but in their recent exhibitions in England they have introduced audiovisual elements. They are currently working on a series of exhibitions to take place in Granada, Seville and Malaga in Spain. Alberto Yusta is an electronic music composer based in Berlin.


GlogauAIR Resident Artists

Gemeinsam - Selforganized artists of the North
Project Space Exhibition

23 - 24 March 2018
@ GlogauAIR

GlogauAIR Resident Artists

Hannah Celli // Arthur Laidlaw// Anastasiya Gutnik // Hwan Yun // Jazoo Yang & Sungho Haku // Marcia Vaitsman // Marko Ivic // Rachel Goodwin // Victor Artiga // Zachary Craig

Aiming to create a welcoming place for emerging international artists, GlogauAIR was founded in 2006 by the spanish artist Chema Alvarogonzález. At the heart of the experimental and innovative Berlin´s artistic scene, GlogauAIR stands today as privileged space for creative development.

This 23rd and 24th of March, GlogauAIR warmly invites the public in to discover freshly baked works by the latest 11 international artists in residence. Moreover, the Project Space on the ground floor will be hosting the exhibition Gemeinsam -Selforganized artists of the North curated by irreverent gallery Galleri Syster, based in Luleå, Sweeden. To shake up the opening night, we will be counting with the live DJ session by the valencian musician KOSTROK. To start off the second and last day of the event, the artists´talk “Be the artworld you want to take part in” will be exploring the relationship between individual and collective artwork.

During this Open Studios’ event visitors will be able to dive into the diversity of human subjectivity through Marcia Vaitsman´s videos, to follow Victor Artiga´s musing on how technology has been replacing our real memory and emotions and Rachel Goodwin’s reflection on how the consumerist cycle of useless objects has affected the perception of our needs.

Marko Ivic will be expanding on the topic of aesthetic phenomenon of light reflection while the sound artist Hwan Yun will be playing with sound with an amusing interactive installation. JAZOO Yang and Haku Sungho will also be presenting a visual sound piece in which they literally lend sound to the act of painting itself.

The painters and drawers Hannah Celli, Anastasiya Gutnik and Zachary Craig will be exhibiting their latest experiments with new materials, techniques and style, while the also painter Arthur Laidlaw carefully analyzes the ties between the history of a city and its inhabitants.

What do we need? In order to feel that we are moving, not standing still: to avoid becoming bogged down in internal or external issues, but instead to progress from one question to the next? To develop – as a person and as an artist?
We need each other; we need to discuss, reflect, obstruct, construct. We need dialogues and polylogues. We need co-participation. As individual artists we cooperate long-term with invited artists, creating mutual mentorship, broadening our artistic practice, our organising, our thoughts.
We embrace the collective practice, we find strength in each other and have so much more fun together.

​ArtSci Soirée & Vernissage

Art Science Exhibits
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

18:00 - 21:00 @ GlogauAIR
Curatorial Concept by mp Warming

Set in motion by international artist mp Warming, Art Science Exhibits is an independent venture created, and consistently recreated, by artists and scientists. The exhibitions and public programs we present work to greater the sphere of ArtSci conversation. Our mission for the future of nature-kind is to bring artists together with scientists as true conceptual partners.

We began working in Berlin last year with an exhibition program that opened for Berlin Science Week and was presented in partnership with the Faculty of Life Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (exhibit images are on the Locations page). The main exhibit was presented at Thaer-Institut, next door to the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN). HU instructors Dr Ohl and Dr Korn, who also lead research teams and are curators at the MfN, acted as our science advisors.
Participating artists attended from Belgium, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, the UK and the USA.

Since we work outside of the university, to launch our program this year we are organizing an ArtSci Soirée in collaboration with the art space GlogauAIR in Kreuzberg
