ZUZANNA CZEBATUL* PLANET X
31 March - 12 May 2023
We are glad to announce the sixth edition of FREISPIEL: A solo presentation by Berlin based artist Zuzanna Czebatul.
Zuzanna Czebatul draws inspiration from the links between pop culture, individual freedom and social ideologies. She asks questions about power, its symbolic embodiment and how power relations structure our social reality.
For Rosa Stern Space, the artist continues her series of gigantic ecstasy pills and creates a new inflatable work especially designed for the show. This hyperrealistic sculpture functions as a monumental dialectic figure to rave culture, related to the acceleration of drug consumption alongside the elimination of societal taboos around it.
One World One Future: It was all supposed to be affirmative and merging – an everlasting rave. But the pharmapornographic age is characterized by violence, exploitation and socio-economic imbalances. An anticipated state became a collective failure, unfulfilled promises and global crises resulted in a worldwide error.
Zuzanna Czebatul, born in 1986 in Międzyrzecz, Poland, lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main and at the Berlin University of the Arts as well as in New York at Hunter College as a Fulbright fellow. Her work has already been presented in numerous exhibitions internationally. In 2021, her first institutional solo exhibition in Germany took place at the Kunstpalais Erlangen.
FREISPIEL #6 marks the 3rd chapter of our ongoing program AFTER ALL ENDS: NO NEW BEGINNINGS.
