24h Dahlem / Teaser
Human existence manifests itself in ways of life and how they are passed on in objects and thoughts. In this sense, we have two fantastic, albeit structurally totally different, archives at our disposal with the street and the museum. The film installation “24h Dahlem” by the artist Clara Jo and the musician Robert Lippok sets these archives in a productive relationship to each other: Images from the collections in Dahlem are combined with sounds from the TV documentary “24h Berlin.” The three parts of the installation – “Night,” “Day,” and “Future” – link the everyday life and longings of Berliners with the daily activities at the Museen Dahlem and the expectations associated with the construction of the Humboldt-Forum in Berlin-Mitte. The result is an emphatic, transdisciplinary essay on a dissolving and an emerging venue housing the lively collections.
