If One Were two

A pop-up solo exhibition featuring the work of Berlinklusion co-founder Kirstin Broussard.

We are delighted to announce that one of our founding co-members, Kirstin Broussard, will show her work in a solo exhibition in Berlin this November. Curated by Kate Brehme and featuring a bespoke audio-guide created by Dirk Sorge and Jovana Komnenic, who are also Berlinklusion co-founders, the exhibition sparks the beginning of what we hope will be a series of Berlinklusion spin-off projects. Full details of the exhibition and related events are below, we look forward to seeing you there!

About the Exhibition

Kirstin Broussard is fascinated by the interstice between perception and understanding and explores that threshold both literally and metaphorically through photography and video. If One Were Two shows her recent work, a series of visual narratives that investigate the act of looking, the nature of memory, and time. Each piece is an amalgamation of images- in many cases an extended moment frozen in time which she repeatedly re-enters and re-frames with and through her body.

This multi-sensorial exhibition asks the viewer to question: is to see to know, and is to know, to see?

About the Artist

Kirstin Broussard splits her time between Brooklyn (USA) and Berlin (DE). As a child, she spent time wandering the wooded paths that surrounded her family home in Oregon. This had a profound effect on her. The natural world was a place of solace, a playground, an endless labyrinth of sights and sounds- a patch of moss was a miniature universe both infinitesimal and infinite. Her interest in photography developed at a young age, and was pursued through graduate school at San Francisco State University where she received an MA in Interdisciplinary Arts. Since 2004 Broussard has also worked for The Museum of Modern Art in New York as a lecturer and teaching artist. The exploration of multiple viewpoints through her work with children with autism, adults with Alzheimer’s, and people with visual impairments, among others, is an essential part of her practice as an artist. “One no longer exists without the other, the two inform each other in an endless back and forth for which I am eternally grateful- both bring me closer to that delicate balance between surrender and self-possession.”

tête has a step-free entrance and is located on the ground floor. There is a WC but no disabled accessible toilet, the nearest accessible toilets are located at the Baiz bar between Wörter and Metzerstraße or the Lua restaurant on Schwedterstraße. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks can be purchased at the bar during events.
