This exhibition project aimed to show how young, international artists explore their relationship with the passage of time, the construction of memory and the fading memory. Oblivion showed the tension between consciousness of time and the fear of disappearing without leaving a trace.

 

Its complement is Oblio (Broken Dimanche Press, Berlin, 2014), not only a catalogue of the exhibited works, but also a literary collection of writings from different contributors on the topic of memory.

 

Radio producer and writer Craig Schüften gave a lecture-performance on pop-music, the "27 club" and fading away in frame of the exhibition.

Elisa Storelli and Constantin Engelmann performed Trillennium for the finissage on May 24th.

After Berlin, Oblivion was also shown in Switzerland at larada, Locarno (Dec 21st 2014 - Jan 18th 2015).

Commissioned by Zweigstelle Berlin, this project received the kind support of SwissLoss and Canton Vaud.
