During two longer journeys of Georg Jansen in Mongolia, photos and texts have been created that look at the country and its (few) people from a subjective point of view. Since his return, the author has been trying to put the observations in order and continue writing the texts in order to arrive at a larger picture under the guiding questions: What moves Mongolia today? Is there a zeitgeist in Mongolia? How does the country behave in the age of global consumerism?

Audio sample from the overtone choir after the workshop 


Based on the motto: I can do that too! Stefan Ruf, after a short preparation period, gives an idea of how to shape the articulation apparatus in oder to bring to sound some overtones.

Galerie M, Marzahner Promenade 46, 12679 Berlin

Plastic Revue Manfred Kirschner
Plastik Revue, Manfred Kirschner, Installation

The work of Manfred Kirschner is characterized by its conscious diversity. Often the expectations and the relationship of the artist to the audience, the subject of the works in the fields of drawing, video, painting and performance. Since 2009, M.K. a new emphasis on painting, in which, in addition to colours and glitter, collage, quotations and language are used laconically and arrogantly. Many of the paintings have painted eyes and their titles are looking for the “conversation”. It is always about the anerite and the moment of the viewer’s reception. In the presentation for Gallery M, Kirschner refers to the local shopping center “Eastgate”. In a world increasingly full of plastic, his installation humorously asks about our needs, our future lives, and puts painting and video in context with a spatial installation of various plastic bags from around the world that cover the gallery’s walls like a color-intensive collage. At the opening, Kirschner will also present a performance on the topic of shopping: The Miracle Of Shopping. At the finissage at the end of March, the title-giving “Plastik Revue” will start, with performances and musical performances by fellow artists by Manfred Kirschner.
