Labor Neunzehn is an artist-run project engaged in a cross-disciplinary discourse on time-based-art that involves expanded cinema, modern music, publishing, and the critical reflection in media art, with a specific focus on the migration of these languages between the online and offline domains. As an independent curatorial platform and a non-profit initiative for the production of research projects, exhibitions, performances, workshops, we are committed to the presentation of collaborative outcomes and hybrid formats.

Labor Neunzehn constantly extends own curatorial concepts with the aim of opening up spaces for experimentation and discovery, fostering bottom-up community building, as well as endorsing interdisciplinary exchange between art practitioners, institutions, and audience in Berlin.

At present we are active on three main program cycles:

The Exhibit Series » showcases new media artworks as a tool for critical thinking and reflection on dominant value systems and social complexity. Kamera », a non-regular film screening zone, meets avant-garde films in daily thematic rows, to be exhibited within short time-frames. Cluster », a new-music series devoted to the investigation of sound and notation, provides musicians and composers with an exchange area in Berlin-Treptow, at the crossroad of compositional and performance practices.

Labor Neunzehn is based in a former GDR factory building in Karl-Kunger Kiez, Berlin.
