On 9 December ADA organizes the third edition of Breakfast at Noon at L40 Kunstverein am Rosa Luxemburg Platz eV in Berlin. Breakfast at Noon is a series of thematic encounters for which ADA invites guests to present and discuss their work with an audience around a breakfast table. The guests are invited for the specific position they take through their work and the way in which they structure their working processes.
Each breakfast session reflects on questions that come forward from the practice of the invited guests. For this session at L40, ADA will present their own practice next to the practices of the two, artist initiated, collaborative practices of Oda Projesi and ABA, Air Berlin Alexanderplatz. Each initiative will give a brief presentation about their group’s structure and practice as a collaborative endeavor and we will discuss notions of hospitality, ethics and otherness through looking at the multiple approaches that groups working together have adapted in their working processes.
Oda Projesi is an artist collective based in Istanbul and composed of three members, Seçil Yersel, Özge Açıkkol and Güneş Savaş, who turned their collaboration into an art project in 2000. The project members met in 1997 and decided to rent and share an apartment as a studio. Although not intended, the apartment they rented in Galata eventually evolved into a multi-purpose, private and public place. Oda Projesi works with different tools and strategies; working with “neighbours” and with people from different disciplines.
ABA is an‘artist-in-residency’ based in the centre of Berlin and offering very personal and time-intensive support to its residents. It was founded in 2009 by Susanne Kriemann and Aleksander Komarov. ABA has three team members whom all have had a wide variety of experiences in the field of artist-in-residency-programs.
Please Note: You are kindly requested to reserve a seat by mailing us before the 7th of December. The breakfast will take place at L40 Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg Platz eV on Linienstraße 40. There will be a maximum of 25 people who can attend. Food and drinks will be served during the breakfast.
