Alfredo Jaar
Rosa, Karl, Bertolt, Herbert and the others

Curator: Michaela Richter

Working in public space is deeply rooted in the practice of Alfredo Jaar, who since the beginning of his career creates political works that attract attention. His series of graphical diagrams conceived for the façade of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), entitled Rosa, Karl, Bertolt, Herbert and the others(2017), is an homage to Harun Farocki and his critical view on social conditions, while at the same time it addresses the varied history of Chausseestrasse. As one of the oldest streets in Berlin, it represents a major center of production and business since the 19th century, being the home to a variety of industries throughout history. From 1961 to 1990, the street was divided by the Berlin Wall and marked by a checkpoint. Eight years before the building of the Wall, this border crossing was one of the hot spots of the uprising of 17 June 1953, when about 10,000 striking steel workers were on the march there.
