In his films and video installations, Marko Schiefelbein explores the language and imagery of the advertising industry, investigating their role in the process of constructing and reproducing identity. His works depict the expulsion of an individual from a possible state of complacency and frugality into a permanent state of a search for a perfectly made version of one’s own personality – an expulsion into the paradise worlds created by advertising.
Marko Schiefelbein is this year’s member of the Media in Space and Network Culture jury.

Opening: Sat 20.1.2018, 19:00

Johanna Mangold und Jan-Hendrik Pelz see themselves as young independent artists confronted by a highly competitive art scene and art market in which they each have to secure a position for themselves. They encounter the dubious mechanisms, the unequal distribution of attention, capital and influence and the completely open question about objective “artistic quality” with a measure that will be more than a self-fulfilling prophecy: they brew a magic potion using select ingredients that turns whoever drinks it into the “best artist in the world”. The creation process and potion drinking performance can be seen in the form of a documentary video “Zaubertrank” (magic potion), which will celebrate its premiere in cooperation with Oberwelt e.V. and the Stuttgarter Filmwinter. Additionally, original artworks from “the best artists in the world” can be marvelled at the Oberwelt gallery.

Video artist Ulu Braun has set up a unique video installation for Galerie b. Sixteen loops from “Birds” and “Untitles Airlines” are assembled to form a complex video sculpture: birds in urban contexts and mud-clad bodies in landscapes overlap to become pictorial loops.
Ulu Braun was born 1976 in Schongau, Germany. He works and lives in Berlin. From 1996 to 2005 he studied painting and experimental film at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and animation at the Film University Babelsberg in Potsdam.
Ulu Braun has been using the medium of video to explore the field between the visual arts and auteur cinema since 1997. He is one of the key figures who have transferred painting into video art and have played a significant role in defining and further developing the genre of video collage. In 2017 he was awarded for best film in german competition at Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen and the arte Shortfilm Award (Hamburg). Currently he receives the Hans & Charlotte Krull working grant.
Ulu Braun is taking part in the Stuttgart Filmwinter - short films international competition - with his work “The Hostel”
The artist will be present at the gallery opening.
