Come Over Chez Malik, Prova d’amore - Доказательство любви - Liebesbeweis - Proof of love
Donnerstag, 20. Mai, 19 Uhr
Offener Ofen presents spaces and places.
In this format various artist-led and self-organized initiatives will introduce us to their practice. Some of the lectures will be accompanied by a workshop.
Come Over Chez Malik’s is an off space located in the basement of a vodka bar near the central station, in the district of St. Georg, Hamburg. It was founded by three students from the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst in 2014 and has been run by Elisa Barrera and Elena Malzew since 2018. The exhibitions open on Friday evenings and the event continues until dawn. Each year counts about 10 to 13 exhibitions and events. In this presentation, we will talk about the history of the off-space, the bar, the moment of the foundation, our various collaborations with artists and the programming that includes several exhibitions, performances, screenings, and publications. We will especially focus on topics such as self-organisation, gathering, the exhibition as an event, scene/network, glamour, collaborations, bar infrastructure and exhibiting in a bar, the off-space as political tool, documentation, one-night shows, being an independent exhibition space, curatorial and artistic projects with public funding. The lecture will be held by Elisa Barrera and Elena Malzew.
Die Veranstaltung findet als Zoom-Videokonferenz statt, die Zugangsdaten werden zu gegebener Zeit hier veröffentlicht.
