„POINTS OF RESISTANCE“ invites contemporary artists and thinkers from a diversity of places and perspectives to address the many meanings of resistance in today's complex world. Without taking any singular political position, Points of Resistance gives voice to humanistic viewpoints necessary in an era witnessing the steady resurgence of authoritarianism, nationalism and racism over the world.

________

„POINTS OF RESISTANCE“ takes the form of an exhibition of over 50 exceptional international artists, jointly produced by Gallery Kleiner von Wiese and MOMENTUM, curated by Constanze Kleiner and Rachel Rits-Volloch, in cooperation with David Elliott, Jan Kage, and Stephan von Wiese. Despite our uncertain times of lockdowns and gallery closures, the Zionskirche will remain open to the public. As such, Points of Resistance is amongst the few places that Berliners starved for culture during this time of Corona can come to experience diverse artistic perspectives addressing the ongoing need for resistance, in its many forms. The exhibition will be accompanied by a Discussion Series; a Video Program, Artist Talks; Performances; Concerts; and Children’s Workshops.

Situated in Berlin’s Zionskirche, „POINTS OF RESISTANCE“ invokes the remarkable history of this church as a crucial point of resistance both against the Nazis and during the GDR – from renowned theologian and anti-Nazi activist Deitrich Bonhoeffer who worked in the parish for over a decade until his arrest by the Gestapo, to the numerous opposition groups and human rights activists whose use of the Zionskirche as a meeting point made it a target of the Stasi until the collapse of the GDR. Upon this historic stage, we assemble a diversity of artistic voices – through painting, photography, sculpture, video, sound, performance, and discussion - reflecting on the mistakes of the past and present, in order to celebrate the values which enable us to forge unity from diversity.
