HEW is a project space by Elana Katz in cooperation with Gallery KWADRAT, founded in Berlin in March 2020. HEW’s activities are reactionary creative and critical experimentation, including site-specific installations, actions, and discourse — both in the context of public events and the intimacy of studio work. Launched at the beginning of Berlin’s COVID-19 lock-down, in the context of the current pandemic HEW functions as a dystopian sanctuary created by artists in surreal and uncertain times.
Founded at Falckensteinstraße 24 in Berlin Kreuzberg, HEW as a conceptual platform operates in a transitory manner. This House will thus regularly occupy different spaces, working in a site-specific manner at each location. Launched with a live-stream group exhibition featuring Dario Srbic, Alessandro Rauschmann, Natalia Korotyaeva, Leonardo Borri, Elana Katz, and Exildiscount, HEW’s program has also included group exhibition “Null Punkt Null Null” with Philip Kojo Metz, Lisa Stertz, Martyna Poznanska, and Fernanda Trevellin, solo performances by Elana Katz, Lisa Stertz, and Dario Srbic, and an artist talk series with invited speakers Marek Claassen, founder of Artfacts.net, curator Chiara Valci Mazzara, and art historian Jasmine Hagedorn, in conversation with artists and collaborators of the House. HEW is pleased to hosting a solo exhibition by Hans Peter Kuhn November 17 – December 13, 2020.
