During the residency season we have invited to three „open studio“ events. On the May 4-5 KuBa:kulturbahnhof took part in the regional programm „Offene Ateliers in der Prignitz/Open ateliers in the Prignitz“, an established cultural event in the area.
We took this as an opportunity to present the work of the first KuBa- Artists in Residence: Aya Zamir, Yuli Zakai, Gaya Kolmann, Jennifer Bennett & Colin Ginks.
As an extension of the program we have intoduced the „Red House“, a side building on the station grounds as a new gallery and art space with works of Uri Levinsson, Adaya Godlevsky, Alona Harpaz, Jonas Kammerer, Angus Massey, Daphna Saker, Sharon Horodi, Cheb* Mika Kammerer, Keren Shalev and Katja Anzelwsky.
We were delighted with the great support of the inhabitants of Klein Warnow and our friends (many of whom came specially from Berlin) to celebrate this opening with us.
The second open studio took place on a sunny weekend in June with works of KuBa- Artists in Residence: Zhuyu, Nana Sawada and Elliott Haigh. Special thanks go to Silke Tobeler, who runs the blog female gaze and and has dedicated a whole article to her visit in KuBa:kulturbahnhof female-gaze-visits-kuba.
On a wonderful summer day on August 31 we showed works by Helen Lee, Tohar Lev Jacobson and Irina Wainstein in the studios. Throughout the day, performances took place inside and outside. The artists and the audience came from many different countries. This day was a celebration of diversity!
Thanks to all artists and friends and strangers who came to visit us and have made Kuba:kulturbahnhof a place of exchange, of creativity, of inspiration – a place of motion & emotion.
