Directors Lounge is, as most by now know, a motor that is always running, transporting off-centre art of various descriptions to various destinations. Continuing this aesthetic assault, DL is revving up to leave its parking space in Berlin this week to head out to the megalopolis Rhine-Ruhr. At C.A.R. (otherwise known as “contemporary art ruhr”), DL will be presenting a cache of buffed efforts, arresting works fuelled with visual and aural alchemy, some of which will be in the form of fitting film excursions highlighting the artistic process, taken from the 9th Berlin International Directors Lounge earlier this year. The brakes are off, and there is no rear-view mirror.
All of this will unfold on the 1st floor (above ground floor), stand A12, next to bothKroatien Kreativ, which already unleashed some of its light-and-sound wizardry at DL9 in February, and partner Medienwerkstatt Berlin, another luminary force at the same event, our annual core occurence. There will be much to steer the senses. Even if you aren’t one of the 11 million+ living in the area, it is, after all, maybe nothing more than a highway away. And the Autobahn has no speed limit.
See you at C.A.R.!
