About the exhibition:

30 Jahre jwd in 30 Jahre Hohenschönhausen Neu-Hohenschönhausen foundation stone has been posed 30 years ago, in 1984. 30 years later the district has planned many events to celebrate this anniversary, and has asked other spaces to organize activities around this subject. We are working in our ateliers only since the beginning of 2014 and are going to leave it in February 2015 in order to give space for the renovation of Plattenbauten and shops on our street, which will bring an increase of the rent for people living or working here. The authorities are waiting for a new wave of inhabitants who are going to leave the more expensive centre of Berlin in order to find cheaper flats here. We decided therefore to use these temporal limitations and play with them, as if we would have always been here, since the first moment Neu-Hohenschönhausen, and in particular our area, the so called Ostsee-Viertel was founded.

We have been dealing from the beginning with the “problem” of our distance from the centre of Berlin, and our name JWD (“janz weit draussen”, the Berlin acronym for something very far outside, both in positive and negative meaning) mirrors it. JWD is not only referring to our studio and exhibition space, but also to the whole area of Hohenschönhausen. We have chosen to use one of the frst emblems of this district to present the exhibition. It depicts two kids in the act of planting a tree surrounded by Plattenbauten. A debatable utopic vision related to the last afflatus of the DDR. the transformation of a sewage field on the outskirts of Berlin in an area for development of new housing estates, that took place in the 1970s, starting in Marzahn and ending up right in Neu-Hohenschönhausen.

Before saying farewell to our space in Zingster Strasse 10, we have invited artists to approach in their way the official and unofficial history of Hohenschönhausen: the landscape, the architecture, the social and economic problems of Hohenschönhausen and its more positive features, concurring to create parallel, manifold and also a playful narration of this area.

Ein romantischer Abschied / A romantic farewell In einer umfassenden Retrospektive wollen wir den gegebenen Anlass nutzen um zurück zu blicken und uns die vergangenen 30 Jahren vor Augen zu führen, die mit der Grundsteinlegung jwd begannen.  Der Moment gibt jedoch nicht nur Gelegenheit zum feiern. Die uns bevorstehende Schließung im Februar 2015 scheint diesmal, nach dem es uns nun schon so oft drohte, endgültig. more info: http://janzweitdraussn.tumblr.com/
