WEST TURM PAVILION AT TEUFELSBERG
Anatopia is an ecstatic blast of well-crafted raw energy made of Henrietta Morgenstern & Klaus Plotzlisch. A duo band, love affair, freak show, intergalactic cabaret, punk concert, science fiction film and a multitask juggling act.
O’Heocha’s works advance an alternative materiality of the improvised, re-cycled and re-configured, contrasting the prevalent quasi-organic ‘functional’ aesthetic of much that surrounds us. The ubiquity of iMac-esque styling in manufactured products, implies the capitalist condition as a given, that consumption and ownership of such artefacts are a part of ‘natural’ order of things and is an extension of ones being and identity.
Antje Rieck was born in Ulm, Germany in 1970 and received her Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Turin. She has used her mastery in organic materials such as marble, wood and stone to investigate the structure with and around space, formed by the biography of the social fabric. Additionally, she explores a variety of mediums to develop her work including, photography, video, digital animation, performance and site-specific installations. Through her artistic process, she gives voice to a material musicality in its various forms corresponding to the several layers of perception she experiences. Rieck refers to these layers of perception as ‘experimental fields’ or ‘playing fields’. These fields influence her to create a visible geographical reference to the imaginary of the infinite.
Her work has been exhibited internationally including a solo show at Foundation Mario Merz, Turin, a public commission Installation in Memory to the Martyrs of the Fosse Ardeatine, Rome, 2006, GLASSTRESS. la Biennale di Venezia, 54. Esposizione Internazionale d’Arte, Venice, 2011. Additionally, her work housed in a number of private collections in Germany, Italy, France Switzerland, Russia and the USA as well as publicly commissioned works.
Benni Bosetto’s work moves on thin, fragile and almost imperceptible lines, small movements of small actions. Narrations appearing small and abstract which place the man and the observer in an indefinite, uncertain, unstable, grotesque and surreal situation. She highlights the internal dynamics of conflict in which reflections about opposition such as tradition and modernity, action and contemplation, nature and tamed culture appear. Her poetic approach stops time in a surreal space, traveling to imaginary places, and different cultures, far from our time and our space.

Swedish video performance artist and photographer. Sederowsky received her MFA from The University of Gothenburg and a BFA in Photography. She works with video performance to investigate language through linguistic exercises, speech-acts and phonological experiments, positioning herself directly in the lens, face to face with the viewer. Focusing on the process of using speech and how words are delivered, often through repetition and defragmentation, she explores language not simply as a means of communication but also as a poetic and formal device. Sederowsky’s work has been exhibited widely including shows at The Hasselblad Center and Goteborg Konsthall, Gothenburg Sweden; Museo de La Ciudad, Queretaro Mexico; The Bow Arts Trust, London UK, BALTIC Center for Contemporary Art, Newcastle UK and The National Center for Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia.

There are no dependable records about the relationship between Robert Allen Zimmerman (*1941 alias Bob Dylan) and Daniel Permanetter (*1977 ). In the videos (amongst others „My 115th Dream“, 2008 and „The Beauty Parlor“, 2010) the two meet again and again in short, everyday settings. On a bus, in a movie theater, without converging in any plausible way. What interlinks the two is something deeply human. The impossibility to let off expressing your own observations and to deal with the great and finally unanswered questions of live, love, beauty and death by telling stories. Inexhaustible questions on which Bob Dylan commented almost without exception at least once in a pointed way.

Krechting interacts with themes, spaces, people and dreams that pop up in his daily life. In his multimedia installations Krechting connects themes of the contemporary state with his irrational inner perceptions. Often his work is created on the premise that it’s inherent story balances in a rather mental free zone, a dreamlike, absurd, associative and humorous state where there is no good or bad, right our wrong. Krechting often works with materials and objects commonly recognized as societal tools we build and live with every day.

Nika Radić is a visual artist and, although her media change, the main interest in her work remains communication and modes of representation in contemporary culture. She has graduated in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and in art history from the University of Vienna. She sometimes writes about art, but works mainly as a visual artist.
Joseph Patricio (b. 1981, Manila) makes art of the social, encountering his ‘work’ within the potentials of shared rituals, and engaging in creative ways to relate with the other. He operates within the intersections of contemporary art practices, daily social life, nomadism, creation of affects, cooking and the search of the shaman within.
Peter Schütze was born on March 12, 1985 in Berlin-Pankow. At present, he lives in the borough of Friedrichshain. He works as a dental technician and as an independent artist at KAI’s metal workshop. His creations were presented to the public for the first time at “Werkschau 2012/13” and at “Box32” in 2013. In the course of time, Peter successfully refined his skills in sculpting and in jewelry design. His incentives are mainly his love for arts and crafts as well as the chance to broaden his artistic horizon beyond his professional routine. He regards the Teufelsberg project as a great source of inspiration and a welcome opportunity to cooperate with the various other artists involved.
Ursula Heinzelmann, born in Berlin in 1963, is a freelance German food and wine writer, a sommelière and a gastronome. She was a good cook before she had learned to read, according to a radio interview on HR2-Kultur, and she was a practitioner before she began to write about food: from 1986 to 1991 she ran a small hotel and restaurant on the shores of Lake Constance, and soon afterwards a delicatessen in Berlin specializing in fine French cheeses and wines. She has twice been awarded the annual Sophie Coe Prize in Food History at the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery, most recently in 2006. In 2008 she won the Prix du Champagne Lanson for her wine journalism on Slow Food Magazine.
In English she has written a book-length survey of German food, Food Culture in Germany, published by Greenwood Press in 2008. In Germany, however, she is best known for her series of three books on real and traditional food, beginning with Erlebnis Essen (2006). This includes a comparative tasting of top quality French and German butter in which the renowned appellation d’origine protégée butter of Isigny-Sainte-Mère met strong competition. The series continues with Erlebnis Kochen (subtitled “Manifesto for a cuisine without recipes”: 2007). The third volume, Erlebnis Käse und Wein (2009), takes the form of a “voyage of discovery”, an exploration of German cheese, German wine and how well the two go together. She and her husband, the wine journalist Stuart Pigott, took up the same theme in illustrated articles for the popular magazine Für Sie, “Cheese and Wine from Germany” and “Cheese and Wine Ideas”.
