With Open Arch BüroFriedrich
presents a month-long series of summer shows, which invite artists and
designers from the respective fields of architecture, publications,
art and fashion to make use of the exhibition space for a 5-day
period. The individual segments are not exhibitions in the traditional
sense. Instead groups of artists and designers present projects which
encourage interaction and participation on the part of the public. In
conjunction with a series of talks, the program intends to generate
active communication between the viewers and artist-producers. In some
cases, projects will actually require and depend on the participation
of exhibition visitors. The core idea is to create a communicative
space, in which the viewer is actively engaged.
PRINT IT! In the second week of the 'OPEN ARCH at
BüroFriedrich' series publishers from Berlin and Amsterdam will
present their magazines over the course of three days. At different
times throughout the exhibition authors, editors, graphic designers
and invited guests will be at BüroFriedrich, in order to introduce
their magazines in person or through videos, performances,
installations and events.
Viewers are given the opportunity to take part in these events, gain
insight into the working processes and concepts behind each of the
differently positioned magazines and meet the representatives from the
exhibiting journals. Some of the magazines are new this year; others
have been in existence for a long time. Emphasis is placed both on the
visual appearance and content of the publications. The magazines focus

'Neue Review' is dedicated to art criticism. Articles are
never written by one person alone. For each edition specific

opportunity to contribute to the next issue by submitting their
critiques of visited exhibitions at a specially designed workplace.
Viewer entries will be published in the next issue. The visitor can actively participate.
'Classix' offers an exchange specially created for OPEN ARCH
at BüroFriedrich, namely "Trading Pop for Classics". Each
visitor can bring in an old pop CD and trade it on-site for a new CD
with classical music. Viewers can listen to the available CDs in
advance. The pop CDs will then be recycled into a new composition by a
composer / artist to be named during the exhibition. The visitor
can actively participate.
