Series of talks and exhibitions 2024/2025

From Halle to Hungary
and back in 40 years

A project by artist and curator Eike Berg. Once a month, he invites an artist with whom he has worked or exhibited in the past 40 years to exhibit together now for a weekend. The guests presents a selection of current and earlier works, while Berg shows a work from the period of their first encounter.

The presentation will open with a three-way art talk where the artists will be joined by an expert from the art world. The exchange of ideas will take place in an informal atmosphere with guests invited, and will be documented online in a video stream. The discussions address artistic positions and shared experiences.

The memories of 40 years open a rich panorama of the Central European art scene across several countries in the decades before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall and around the turn of the millennium.

Eike Berg was born in Halle/Saale in 1966 and spent his youth there. Since 1984, he has spent successive stages of his life in Braunschweig, Budapest and Freising near Munich. After 40 years, he returned to Halle (Saale) with his artistic work.

In the pop-up exhibition at the MALH, Dementieva presents several works, including an interactive installation that combines human breathing with digital information in real time, while Berg shows video objects from the exhibition project in Brussels.

Zsolt Kozma, curator and art writer, has been a long-time companion of Eike Berg since the 1990s in Budapest and knows both artists from his close collaboration with Alexandra Dementieva in Brussels, and will discuss the significance of contemporary media art and their shared experiences in the international art scene.
