Clash Valencia Berlin

01.07.2020 – 02.29.2020

“Clash Valencia Berlin” is the third exhibition in the cycle of exhibitions “Clash Art Exhibitions”, in collaboration between German and Spanish artists conceived and curated by Ricardo de Larrea Remiro and for this edition organized in collaboration with Carmen Bonet Saltamontes from the Sporting Club Russafa. 

Sporting Club Russafa, a cultural space and artist studio, will host an incredibly diverse exhibition of paintings, sculptures and art installations, in which Valencia and Berlin artists clash together in the beautiful area of Russafa, Valencia.

Prologue:

“Here or There?”

Where are We when not Here, right now in this moment reading this?

Is it a matter for you where you live?

Do you live Here or There? 

What is the difference between being Here or There or somewhere else?

Are you happier Here or There?

Is the level of happiness measured better Here or There?

I guess nowhere!

(Author: R.de Larrea)

The logistically challenging exhibition stands under the sign of possibilities – bringing together two different artistic environments from two different places. The mediation of impressions, such as community, beyond cultural and geographical borders is the focus of the artistic clash. The exhibition stands in contrast to the tendency of demarcation prevailing in current events. 

This exciting power struggle between stimulus and emotions grows in moments of closeness. Only in such moments of proximity can art tell its story of a better life; only then awakens the sense of possibilities which our present might just be longing. “It is simply not a political act for a work of art to say how the world would be better,” writes philosopher Christoph Menke.
