The transit lounge is the archetypal transit space, the point where the hyper-global + hyper-local coincide; a location which blurs traditional conceptions of geo-political boundaries, creating pockets of international space within the borders of individual nation-states. An in-between space, it exists relative to a fixed departure and arrival point, not to the area that surrounds it.

The Transit Lounge is a series of overlapping residencies for Australian and German artists and architects in Berlin. It is also a blog where themes relating to the project will develop, collaborations will be initiated and sustained, and observations on the city collected. The Transit Lounge invites you to participate in these transnational conversations by commenting on the blog.

The transit lounge is supported by Culturia and the DAZ

Title: ‘Adaptive Reuse’ and Transit in Australian Art + Architecture

Introduction: Katie Hepworth(AUS)

Speakers: Miriam Mlecek(DE/AUS), Isabelle Toland(AUS) and Jasper Knight(AUS)

Location: Deutsches Architektur Zentrum, Köpenicker Straße 48/49 Aufgang A, 10179 Berlin-Mitte

Time: 19H, 24.04.07

The Transit Lounge is an artist-in-residence program for Australian + Berlin-based artists and architects, which aims to blur the boundaries between the disciplines through a focus on short, process-focused, interdisciplinary collaborations. The program challenges artists to rethink their approach to art-making by encouraging them to adapt, reuse, evolve and even destroy the work of previous artists in the space.

Isabelle Toland, Jasper Knight and Miriam Mlecek are all artists-in-residence at the Transit Lounge. They will discuss their own work in reference to the process of the Transit Lounge, and to the broader context of contemporary Australian art and architecture.
