HELP (Is anyone an artist?)

a new performance by Kelly Lloyd with Elizabeth Ravn and Annelie Andre

organized by Annelies Kamen for Crybaby
June 13th, 2019

beginning at:
Genthiner Str. 36
10785 Berlin

Crybaby is happy to present this performance as part of When The Hunger Starts - Project Space Festival Berlin 2019 kindly supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.


When talking about the relative importance or value of art, why is art set against the things we need to survive? Because you can't eat a painting, does that mean it’s a useless fetish object for the bourgeoisie? Artists are the first to admit that if there was a choice between funding a hospital or an art museum, we'd all choose the hospital... but... what if art could save lives? HELP (Is anyone an artist?) is a mobile performance which will explore what it looks like when art tries to save a life.


The project space festival interviewed me on the topic of feminist projects spaces - click here to read it.

Ain’t No Use

opening March 22nd, 6-10pm

and March 23rd by appointment

@ Crybaby

Genthiner Str. 36

10785 Berlin


“Rather like wishing to hammer a table together tidily, meticulously, with a craftsman's skill, and at the same time do nothing. But not so that they could say: 'Hammering is nothing to him,' but rather 'Hammering is real hammering to him, and at the same time it is nothing too,' which would of course make the hammering become even bolder, even more resolute, even more real, and, if you like, more crazy."

The exhibition ‚Ain’t No Use’ presents a collection of works that engage with the question of utility - inverting the attributes of functionality and through modification or commentary relating to their surrounding environment.


»einen Tisch mit peinlich ordentlicher Handwerksmäßigkeit zusammenzuhämmern und dabei gleichzeitig nichts zu tun und zwar nicht so, daß man sagen könnte: >Ihm ist das Hämmern ein Nichts<, sondern >Ihm ist das Hämmern ein wirkliches Hämmern und gleichzeitig auch ein Nichts<, wodurch ja das Hämmern noch kühner, noch entschlossener, noch wirklicher und, wenn du willst, noch irrsinniger geworden wäre.«

Die Ausstellung „Ain’t No Use“ versammelt Arbeiten, die sich mit der Frage nach Nutzbarkeit auseinandersetzen, Funktionszuschreibungen umkehren und sich mal modifizierend, mal kommentierend auf den sie umgebenden Raum beziehen.

Fri 21. December 2018, 8-11 pm / 20:00 - 23:00 Uhr
Kreuzberg Pavillon | Naunynstraße 53 | 10999 Berlin

Sonya Schönberger | Annelies Kamen & Almut Schwacke | Katrin Heydekamp | Alexander Norton | Dana Engfer | Alisa Berger

Where do our stories begin? How does it feel to live in an urban environment and not owning this very place anymore? Why has it become so important to travel and live in a hotel when you are broke? Are we ever going to explore the fluidity and uncertainty of our travels in sympathy of finding something that could be easily mistaken for nothing? Are we getting so easily attracted to a place where the meaning of our beliefs collapses? Can the viewer, embrace the absurd next to the void or does the set of our actions already lie outside the rules of the game?

On occasion of the last exhibition this year, Kreuzberg Pavillon shows a range of video works from its recent cooperation with FAQ, accompanied by a reading by Alexander Norton.

Meet Your Critics

at FAQ - Bremen

MEET YOUR CRITICS is a curatorial game for an indefinite Number of visitors to a group exhibition, whose critical vote is obtained until at the end of the evening only one of the works shown will be on view. The time interval in which all participants are questioned and thus new juries are constantly created is calculated from the total duration of the exhibition, which is divided by the number of participating artists.

MEET YOUR CRITICS has been tested since 2016 at Kreuzberg Pavillon as a curatorial game, in various variations, and further developed in collaboration with other project spaces, most recently this year, at the invitation of the Goethe Institute in Prague, at Berlinskej Model in collaboration with Viktor Czech. For the Bremer project space FAQ, MEET YOUR CRITICS has specially compiled a selection of video works.

Initiated by Lisa Schorm & Heiko Pfreundt / Kreuzberg Pavillon, Berlin in collaboration with FAQ.

This exhibition has been made possible with the support of Konzept Monitor and the Senator für Culture Bremen

Archipelago - Goldrausch 2018

September 23 - October 14, Thursdays-Sundays 14:00-19:00

In the exhibition Archipelago – Goldrausch 2018 the Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt presents the work of this year’s fifteen project participants. The image of the archipelago refers to groups of islands that can be found around the world in all oceans and on all latitudes in various constellations.  It mirrors the diversity of the group and their practices. At the same time, the theme of the exhibition also points to the loose network structure of the overall project, which is constantly developing and which, in 2018, is taking place for the 28th time.  Since 1989 it has been supporting women artists by imparting career-relevant knowledge within the framework of a one-year continuing education programme. In addition to the creation of a website and a catalogue, the programme includes the organisation of an annual group exhibition, which this year brings together 15 exciting individual positions in the Reinbeckhallen.


Opening: September 22nd, 6pm


Reinbeckstraße 17

12459 Berlin

On the evening of the opening there will be a shuttle bus running from Alexanderplatz, across from the Park Inn Hotel, at 17:15, 18:45 and 20:15 - returning from the Reinbeckhallen at 19:30 and 21:00. In the bus you can hear an audio piece created by Samantha Bohatsch, Soline Krug, Yeongbin Lee, Silke Schwarz and myself.

To reserve a place on the shuttle bus, send an email to office@goldrausch-kuenstlerinnen.de with your preferred departure time.
