Maison de France / Institut Français Berlin: July 10, 2021 – August 15, 2021

As part of the art festival BALADE, an exhibition trail through the district of Charlottenburg designed by curators Liberty Adrien and Carina Bukuts, an exhibition by Ulrike Ottinger will take place at the Maison de France / Institut Français Kurfürstendamm 211 in 10719 Berlin-Charlottenburg.

On July 11, 2021, at 11:00 am, Cinema Paris will screen Ulrike Ottinger's new film PARIS CALLIGRAMMES.

This will be followed by the exhibition opening and reception at the Maison de France / Institut Français Berlin.

The BALADE exhibition will be on view there until August 15, 2021.

"In her presentation at the French Institute, Ulrike Ottinger traces a path from her artist days in Paris in the 1960s to her creative phase as a filmmaker in West Berlin in the 1980s. The two cities attracted artists and intellectuals from around the world during their respective decades and were simultaneously marked by complex political upheavals: While Paris is the scene of student protests and decolonization processes, Berlin is still finding its identity between the occupation zones. At the French Institute, Ottinger's textile works, costumes, and films condense into a topography of the two cities that invites visitors on a foray through past and present."
