Raphaela Vogel
Son of a Witch

Videoart at Midnight Festival '18

The Berlinische Galerie is to show video sculptures by Raphaela Vogel (*1988) at the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in Berlin. The spatial installation is part of a festival to mark the 10th anniversary of Videoart at Midnight.

Her own female physique and an often male-defined technology are themes constantly addressed by Raphaela Vogel, from ever new angles and not without humour, in her post-apocalyptic worlds reminiscent of Frankenstein. Everything is turned on its head, reversed, transformed, deconstructed and reinterpreted with a refreshing lack of respect: the Dixi® pissoir, revolving crane, high-voltage insulators, projection equipment and camera drones become weird monsters populating both the films and the exhibition space. The artist, fragile and vulnerable, takes on these uncanny beings in an apparently hopeless battle.

The exhibition is curated by Olaf Stüber of Videoart at Midnight. More details about the festival 10 Jahre Videoart at Midnight can be found here.

We are pleased to invite you and your friends to the opening of the exhibition on November 29 2018 at 7 pm.
