    Exhibition view: Martin Boyce, Recurring Dreams, FAHRBEREITSCHAFT, haubrok foundation, Berlin, 2021


    In the “kantine” of FAHRBEREITSCHAFT the haubrok foundation show works by Scottish artist Martin Boyce. The lyrical objects and installations from the haubrok collection are largely based on the formal language of the brothers Jan and Joël Martel, who worked together with the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens in Paris on the intersection of Art Deco, Cubism, and Bauhaus. The concrete trees, to which Martin refers in various works, are particularly well known. The exhibition entitled Recurring Dreams consists exclusively of works from the haubrok collection.

    Please note due to Covid-19 restrictions, a visit of the upcoming exhibitions at the hauberk foundation will probably only be possible from May on and by prior registration and the allocation of time slots. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact visit@haubrok.org.

    The invention of the light bulb is an achievement of the 19th century which, particularly in the pulsating metropolises of the world, put an end to the natural alternation of day and night. Glaringly illuminated filling stations, shopping centers, shift work and night clubs are just some aspects of this development.


    The night without boundaries is the focus of this major exhibition, presenting works from early modernism to the present in pursuit of the question of how the natural order of bright and dark, of activity and sleep has been turned on its head, how perception and everyday routine change fundamentally and intermediate worlds are created. In pictures, sculptures and installations, visitors can experience how the twilight can inspire the imagination and how the masquerade of nocturnal actors is brightly exposed in the glare of artificial light.
