Re-opening of SAVVY Contemporary Gallery


Berlin 2020

Having moved into a new space – a former casino – that further pushes us to reflect on
precarity, reckoning with the fact that we are often chips in a larger system of gambling,
our first project in our new home interrogates the potentiality of the risks and realities of
having to be tricksters, surviving as such. To confront the endless consumption of our
societies and the affluence many hold at the expense of others’ poverty, a collective
exhibition is composed as a result of ten months of research, grapplings, and
reasonings together. The show unfolds as a choral questioning to challenge structural
inequalities and stand alongside positions of vulnerability.
