Instinct.Berlin is an experimental and collective art project focused on discussing ideas of the male/masculinities as a physical, social, and political construct in contemporary society as seen from an open spectrum of perspectives. Instinct.Berlin presents a biannual art exhibition and a residency program. Instinct.Berlin links artists internationally and brings together young as well as more experienced artists.
This exhibition embraces the idea of the struggling artists and celebrates the darkness of their creative process. Here we wish to celebrate, as the heart of the exhibition, what is the misunderstood and questionable dichotomy between madness and brilliance. Curated by Eric LeRouge, Instinct.Berlin #5 features 10 international artists from a variety of disciplines, including photography, drawing, painting, sound, performance, and video:
Bruce LaBruce - Film / Photography
Harlen Munsö - Multimedia
Oiko Petersen - Photography
Theodor Johansson - Textiles / Sculpture
Victor Luque - Photography
João Galrão - Scultpure / Collages
Fernando Carpaneda - Painting / Sculpture
Daniel Pernas - Painting
Victor Mateos - Street.Art
Jean-Ulrick Désert -Video
