Memories of the Moon Age — Lukas Feireiss
For centuries mankind has been fascinated by space travel and visiting other planets. Our nearest astronomical neighbor, the Moon – just three days away by rocket – still serves as object of creative projection and speculation to visionaries across the globe.
After nearly five decades since the first moonwalk, Berlin-based curator and writer Lukas Feireiss traces a visual cultural history of lunar exploration from past, to present, and future. The book explores space travel to the Moon as the ultimate flight of fancy for the human imagination and testing ground for ideas in reality.

The Melting Black — Carla Chan
Site-specific installation by artist Carla Chan from Hong Kong. Her specially conceived new work The Melting Black is a multichannel video installation that visually explores tidal movement unfolding in space. Displayed on five video monitors, each with a slight offset of distance and scale, a seemingly coherent but erratic spatial and kinematic experience is generated. The inversion of the vertical and horizontal visual axes further enhances the ambiguity of the work. It challenges our visual customs and perceptual habits and opens up a new dimension of seeing movement and change in nature.

Savage Architecture — Gian Piero Frassinelli, Superstudio and 2A+P/A
Studiolo Berlin presents Savage Architecture, an exhibition by Gian Piero Frassinelli, Superstudio and 2A+P/A previously showcased at Architectural Association of London and in various schools and institutions in Florence, Milan, Bruxelles and Rome
Assuming the form of an exhibition and a book, curated by Davide Sacconi, Savage Architecture portraits the research developed by Gian Piero Frassinelli – former member of Superstudio – and his recent collaboration with 2A+P/A which explore the intersection between architecture and anthropology. Savage Architecture is a journey to the root of the relationship between architecture and man in four episodes. Departing from Frassinelli’s unpublished graduation thesis for an Anthropology Research Center (1968), lingering on the dystopian and revealing scenarios of The Twelve Ideal Cities (1972), the trajectory culminates in the recent collaborative projects of Frassinelli and 2A+P/A for the Budapest Ethnographic Museum (2014) and the Central Archive of Human Cultures (2015).
