The exhibition and weekend of performances are featured by A TRANS at the Haus Statistik as part of the ‚Pioneer Uses‘ program organized by The Network of the independent Berlin Project Spaces and Initiatives in collaboration with Haus der Statistik.
In this exhibition EX-MÊKH will show their inspiration and working method, the themes that have always been important to the collective.

A Weekend of Performance EX MEKH Performance Berlin 2019
Saturday December 6
16.00 h- KRAATZ (Marian Wijnvoord and Forbes Morlock): Writing on Art
17.00 h – Kees Koomen:
In the context of writing The Diaries and writing down what enters my senses I will now try to visualize the sounds that I hear. Working together with improvising musician Yorgos Dimitriades who will improvise on percussion I will try to translate this sound into images.
17:30 Ellen Rodenberg and Yorgos Dimitriadis: Feed
In this “In between time”- space of the Haus der Statistiek I want to do a performance in which I will show a working attitude. It originates from a barrel full of experiences in my studio, daily life and education which I feel to be socially and constructively useful in my functioning as a human being.
18.00 h – Saturday December 6 – Maarten Schepers: Stelle
Can we live in any place on Earth and call it Home? What is home? Is it the stuff that keeps us warm? Is it our past we recognize in our surroundings? Is it in the place we act to keep on living? Schepers will try to elaborate on this question in the performance he proposes.
18:30 Yorgos Dimitriadis DUO: Das Sahnehäubchen
Sunday December 7 – EX-MÊKH: The Act
EX-MÊKH was invited to make an exhibition in the space on the invitation of A-Trans which will be shown during the month of December. We came together as a collective that wants to think about the nature and process of making exhibitions. For this occasion the opening of the exhibition will be a theatrical performance about our practice. We will start a process in front of the public culminating in an exhibition.
In this exhibition EX-MÊKH will show their inspiration and working attitude, the themes that have always been important to the collective. The preceding acts during the performance weekend will be used as fertilizer for the process that will eventually result in an exhibition about the creating of an exhibition.

The Network of the independent Berlin Project Spaces and Initiatives (Netzwerk freier Berliner Projekträume und –initiativen) collaborates with Haus der Statistik initiative (Initiative Haus der Statistik) within the framework of pioneer uses (Pioniernutzung). This enables various project spaces and initiatives for different uses of space, including the project space A TRANS.
EX-MÊKH is the name for the collaboration of visual artists Ellen Rodenberg, Kees Koomen and Maarten Schepers. From the beginning of 2007 onwards EX-MÊKH organized exhibitions in a number of spaces, varying from small intimate rooms to large, more intimidating halls. The context in which the artworks were presented has been determined each time again.
