BAM in Berlin Exhibition at Circle Culture Gallery

Raw Desires: Brutalism & Violent Structures – currently on view at Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin through November 5th 2016.

BAM participates in this exhibition with two major works about the fascinating architecture built by Louis Kahn. All photographs of the Salk Institute were created in 2010 / La Jolla – San Diego CA.

Artists: Frank Thiel, Michael Wesely, Andreas Gehrke, Jan Kempenaers, Benjamin Antony Monn, Christoph Morlinghaus, Thomas Kellner, Fette Sans, Karin Székessy, Dirk-Michael Schulz.

“Raw Desires: Brutalism & Violent Structures” is less an architectural review on brutalism than an attempt to translate a specific feeling, one that captivates so many in our society. The various works here are challenging in their questions. They focus on realities, psychologize urban structures, redefine the given, recontextualize nature and eroticize roughness.

This Brutal World is a global survey of this compelling and much-admired style of architecture. It brings to light virtually unknown Brutalist architectural treasures from across the former eastern bloc and other far flung parts of the world.

It includes works by some of the best contemporary architects including Zaha Hadid and David Chipperfield as well as by some of the master architects of the 20th century including Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Kahn, Paul Rudolph and Marcel Breuer.
