Perfect Conditions: Ironic overconfidence or raw reality? Berlin’s Weißensee School of Art presents 50 new degree works from the sculpture and painting departments. The works on view showcase current developments and investigate the state of contemporary art.

Multi-layered works use imagery, text, sound, and digital data as a field for experimentation, transgressing both the boundaries of their medium and perceptions of reality, and testing the utility of artistic craft and techniques. Relating to the zeitgeist and to the essential challenges of art-making, these works speak to the senses, reflect how developments in technology and art interact, investigate the imagery that surrounds us, and question the systems that form our collective order. Playfully shaping new ways of addressing the relationship between the individual and society, they expand into social space.

Five floors hold 50 autonomous artistic perspectives, opening up unusual perspectives on biographical, historical and social conditions of the world, and probing how analog and digital spheres coincide – perfect conditions.
