Potsdam – Berlin, Changing Cities

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Developing out of her previous exploration of the city of Berlin as a site of memory and transformation (Utopian Architecture, RAE2008, and StadtLandschaften), in the solo exhibition at the KunstHaus Potsdam Potsdam – Berlin, Changing Cities, Stibbon makes a connection between memory, history, and cycles of architectural destruction and reconstruction. Twenty new drawings focus on the contrasting cities of Postdam and Berlin. Stibbon draws attention to the traces left by political events and social upheaval evident in the changing urban landscape. The exhibition was curated by Renate Grisebach (KunstHaus Potsdam e.V.) and Dr. Jutta Götzmann (Potsdam Museum) with Aeneas Bastain (Gallery upstairs berlin) as Project coordinator. In the accompanying publication Potsdam – Berlin, Changing Cities Dr. Jutta Götzmann, Director Potsdam Museum points out that Stibbon “is particularly interested in how different time periods have inscribed themselves in the cityscape, manifestations she attempts to capture before they disappear forever. Stibbon describes this process of constant “urban renewal” as a kind of metaphorical palimpsest, a page from which the text can be scraped or washed off and that can then be written on again, time and time again.” Potsdam – Berlin, Changing Cities was exhibited at the KunstHaus Potsdam Ulanenweg 9, 14469 Potsdam, 2 September – 14 October 2012, in co-operation with Potsdam Museum and Gallery upstairs berlin. The 32 page accompanying publication Potsdam – Berlin, Changing Cities has an essay by Dr. Jutta Götzmann , Director Potsdam Musuem ISBN 978-3-941092-92-1 Image Conference Room, Cecilienhof 2012, 72 x 139 cm chalk on gesso prepared paper.
