'Community-Based' presents a series of long-term, socially-engaged projects realised by artists and other cultural workers, specifically located in Berlin. At the opening, the work of six collectives will be presented, and over the course of the following ten weeks, artists and works will progressively be added. A corresponding lecture programme will ensue. In keeping with the exhibition's title, this ongoing collection of materials will rely on community-based research in a move to supplement the already published and well-known works in this genre of community-based art production. At the end of the exhibition's run, all materials will be added to Decad's growing archive on the social place of art.
Immediately prior to the opening reception, the artist Mathilde ter Heijne will speak on her work in Decad's Hinterhaus lecture space. Ter Heijne is one of the primary six artists to be included in 'Community-Based'. Her artist talk will begin at 18:00. The reception is scheduled to run from 19:00 to 22:00
