Ketuta Alexi-Meskhishvili Cyprien Gaillard Natascha Goldenberg Oliver Helbig Uğur Özbay Roman Signer until 31st of July 2021 by appointment The pandemic sharply brings our direct surroundings into focus. In front of Woolworth, on the corner of Potsdamer Strasse and Kurfürstenstrasse, there is a sculpture by Uğur Özbay (1958 – 2016) in public space. This granite bench (Kleiderbank, 2007) by Uğur Özbay can be seen from the oriel window of the apartment. The exhibition IN A DEAD HEAT FOR COLD CASH AND BUXOM BABES shows two sculptures from the artist’s estate. This visible spatial link between the exhibited works and the public artwork outside opens a dialogue between interior and exterior. The title of the group exhibition refers to the area, which is known for drug deals and prostitution. Funded by Stiftung Kunstfonds Neustart Kultur.
