Conversation, movement and game on bathing place as heterotopia, body cultures, ruptures of everyday life and art as part of leisure.

Art at the swimming pool: Since the summer of 2017, the TROPEZ has offered a three-month art program during the outdoor pool season, including a group exhibition, a performance series, and event series. TROPEZ takes culture out of the environment of classic presentation venues and brings different art forms closer to a broad audience in the setting of the outdoor pool. The visitors encounter young local and international artistic positions, questions and arts in an uncomplicated way. The invited artists produce new exhibits for this unusual context, engage with their audience while developing their contributions, or rehearse the adaptations of their pieces in the midst of the everyday life of the open-air pool: In the Sommerbad Humboldthain, residents of the districts of Wedding, Moabit, Mitte, and the whole of Berlin come together in a very confined space – on sunny days up to 3,500 guests fill the open-air pool. TROPEZ was founded by Nele Heinevetter. Since 2021 Sophie Boysen is the artistic director.

On invitation of the GAK, the Bremen artists Effrosyni Kontogeorgou and Doris Weinberger host the TROPEZ.

The artist Effrosyni Kontogeorgou deals with poetic analogies and structures between different (living) spaces. In recent years, she has been intensively engaged with questions of (inter)specific coexistence and ambivalence between culture and nature, as well as recurring structures of utopia formation. Through an intense engagement with institutions, exhibition spaces and architecture, she realizes walk-in, site-specific spatial interventions. Her work completes itself through the participation and interaction of the visitors. The architectural space itself often becomes a “body part” of the exhibition.

Doris Weinberger works as an artist in an interdisciplinary and collaborative way at the intersection of the media formats installation/interaction/performance in (semi)public space. Focus of her interest: to deconstruct and transform representation and projection mechanisms in the production of (hegemonic) image worlds and (linguistic) structures as well as their legend-making in an interactive and participatory way. Doris Weinberger is a founding member of, among others, the artist collectives mark and ANTZ! as well as the transdisciplinary platform RAUMFINDER. (> markcollective.com, raumfinder.net)
