The exhibition Ambiguous Bodies explores the role of the body as a means of expression within its space and context, offering opportunities to question patterns of long held knowledge and test new constellations. What is the significance of the body in artistic works and how can it become a channel that allows for ways to uncover hidden knowledge, rethink the world and maybe even let utopias to come to life for a short moment?

The exhibition Ambiguous Bodies is organized in the frame of the project Arrival City and seeks to offer a forum for international and newly arrived artists in Berlin and investigate questions pertaining to artistic relocation. With this project we would like reflect on the city as a form of “cultural laboratory” as a space of co-existence of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. The project will run from April till December 2018.
