The ICF & Axel Lapp Projects
When Things Cast No Shadow
The ICF (The International Curators Forum) launched it's 2008 programme with an intimate afternoon salon at Axel Lapp Projects.
To mark a light performative parenthesis around the 5th Berlin Biennial When Things Cast No Shadow, curated by Adam Szymczyk and Elena Filipovic. Using the freedom of speech in an uncontested space the ICF explored the possibility of breaking with conventions, exploring the 24/7 economy as a temporal structure well suited to Berlin. The Curator and critic Axel Lapp lead a conversation on these themes and discuss the rise of the independent gallery scene in Berlin and it's resonances with the curatorial agendas of the Biennial.
The salon was also an opportunity to see a selection from the concurrent exhibition that included a season of films by Sonia Boyce & David Bickerstaff, Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson, Jeanne van Heeswijk & Marten Winters, Mona Jas & Holger Friese, Sonia Khurana and John Sealey.
