Heine , no. This record was on view at Errant Bodies for the duration of the exhibition: Erik had made a set of different sleeves for the record, in different colours and featuring different photos from inside of the soon-to-be-demolished space, and hung on a grid on one of the walls at Errant Bodies. A record is a classic commodity, but not as classic as real estate.
Economists do not class real estate as a commodity, but it most definitely is. In international terms.

And from person to person. Real estate reads like a great big old black book of history. Pages with a golden edge to them. Right on back to Robin Hood, right on past the Romans, way back in the old ancient times. Real estate sings too. Sings like Deutschland Seeks the Damn Superstar. This is this way in which psychogeography was born, all you have to do is combine the words and the practices and the methodologies, geography and psychology. And what do you get??? And whadyyaknow? Tragedy is the dramatic form of history, and because of our sense that the dead deserve dignity and respect, we feel forced to remember the results of evil more than the results of good.
The results of good instead often make themselves manifest in art. In a way, that might be a really refreshing US-German collaboration. I made my way back here in , moving over completely in The dignity of the poor, but human dignity nonetheless. I should state here that Erik says on his website that he also sees benefits in gentrification.
The idea is to compare two different openings in different parts of the city that occurred on the same night.
Because I was at both of them. And this bit is said by a different memory. But all you get is a black page. Make it the next one after this. Imagine a black page in your head. Deep black. The blackness of space.
The comparable blackness of the Internet. The black page is a link, to a video complement, and continuation of this review. It is below the next paragraph. It is symbolic of death, annihilation, night. Inzwischen wurde das "Volksbad" an die GLS-Sprachenschule verkauft, die nebenan bereits ihren Campus eingerichtet hat.
Sweet William – The Early Days 1986-1988 (CD Album – D-Monic / Datakill Records)
Neben dem Stadtbad steht ein schmales Haus. Al atravesar el umbral, la primera sala nos sobrecoge por su tono sobrio y ralo, donde destacan tres instalaciones compuestas a partir de fragmentos de piezas ensambladas y pintadas de negro opaco. After the horrendous destruction and death of World War II and the debilitating years of the Iron Curtain, when the divided city sat east of the free world, a phoenix rose from the ashes.
After , artists from East and West flooded the city, finding affordable studios in buildings that carried incredible history, both good and bad, jump-starting what has become one of the most lively and progressive art scenes. Erik Smith was one such artist who was drawn to the edgy excitement of Berlin, moving there in Anyone familiar with that city will know the bullet holes that still pepper some buildings, imprints from war that almost destroyed it; the remnants of the infamous wall; the new construction that constantly reveals much older constructions, from decades and centuries ago.
Smith was captured by this, and began excavating a section of a dead-zone —the areas around what once was the Berlin Wall. With a shovel, he dug up an old spiral staircase, bringing back to life something that was literally buried and forgotten. So what better place to continue his structural and architectural explorations than Miami, a city constantly redefining itself, tearing down and rebuilding in rapid succession?
And what better location than the new, but temporary space, of the alternative exhibition gallery, Dimensions Variable a Knight Arts grantee? To further the topic of this type of artistic excavation, DV will host a talk among Smith, local artist and urban explorer Adler Guerrier, and the new director of Legal Art, Christopher Cook, next Thursday. Last year Smith employed a shovel to excavate a section of the former "death zone" of the Berlin Wall. He unearthed a large spiral staircase and presented it as a sculpture.

Smith, who has been in Miami on an artist's residency, continues his investigation of cities in transition by focusing on the demolition of Dimension Variable's former Design District space, which is being torn down for a new development. For his project, Erik strategically placed microphones inside the building to record the sounds of the backhoes razing it to the ground," Rodriguez-Casanova explains.
He has torn them apart, painted them over, and repurposed them for the exhibit. One of the artworks Smith is using is a piece that was commissioned by the Miami Art Museum from Rodriguez-Casanova for a group show.

I called MAM to see if they wanted it, but they told me no since it was site-specific. MAM is preparing to move to its new home on the bay, so the discarded gate is an apt reminder of our art scene's rampant evolution.
Smith, who is also creating a limited-edition soundtrack of the site's destruction, hopes to convey a sense of the radical transformation the area has undergone over the past decade. The process is as much "about speculative growth and renewal as it is negation and fragmentation," he says. In , the Berlin Senate commissioned a report on the status of the former "anti-fascist protection rampart," in which it was observed that the control areas around the wall had been left free and now were home to what was called "spontaneous vegetation in the emptiness of the former death strip.
This strip of wildness down the center of the city has grown smaller and smaller in recent years. But there seems to be little or no urban or civic planning involved in this development, leading some urbanists to call these areas "The New Death Strip," as the used-car lots, discount grocery stores, and now condominium developments are established with little broader vision of history or even the future. Paradoxically, because the new structures seem to erase or void the historical and political symbolism of such sites, new buildings full of people seem to actually diminish rather than add.
Against this backdrop, as the city grows up around him, almost overnight, Erik Smith has gone digging. Along a line of different kinds of excavations by Smith, this practice unearthed a structure below the surface: a partial staircase that he has followed down while it has emerged upwards. While the new buildings accumulate, another architecture was produced by Smith, upwards and downwards simultaneously. Ash, soot, and ruins where local history and world history meet frequently: which particular fire, particular burial, particular inhabitant and their particular position, function, politics.
Not far from where Smith is building, the main symbolic spaces, buildings and scultpures of German nationalism, and all that brings to mind, are being rebuilt. I asked Smith if he would go to an archive and make that kind of research - old maps, old records - and he said he would, at some point - a point that keeps being pushed back into the future. Nietzsche wrote of the principle of a limited horizon - a space established in which one is not responsible to answer all questions, to all perspectives, and by holding some questions away, one can learn something else.
In this way, perhaps we can understand that the process of discovery made in situ, with physical persistence has it's own status, and that knowing the "facts" might not help such a kind of discovery, but only interrupt it. That now withering wild streak down the heart of the city was not only a symbol of some possibility, but a still shifting fragment, a question continually posed. In this case, on the ground, Smith has pried out and held open such a window of uncovering, as if the mechanics of revelation and experience of possibility were not only linked, but could in fact be the basis for their preservation.
Vielleicht ist einfach nicht die richtige Jahreszeit, um es zu erkennen. Jedenfalls befinden sich in der Mitte Berlins, dort, wo einmal die Mauer eine tiefe Schneise in die Stadt gegraben hatte, noch immer kleine Fleckchen Paradies. Er beobachtete, wie diese Brachen nach und nach verschwanden, und verfolgte die Grabungen auf verschiedenen Baustellen.
Smith will ihnen Gestalt geben, sie sichtbar machen. Smith erwartete lediglich eine Fundamentmauer. Jahrhundert, das unter dem einstmaligen "Todesstreifen" vergraben gewesen war. Die Bagger stehen schon bereit. Sein Interesse war geweckt, er grub weiter und entdeckte bald auf eine fast komplett intakte metallene Wendeltreppe, die jedoch deutliche Brandspuren aufwies. Die Spurensuche in der Vergangenheit ist ein sich wiederholdendes Konzept seiner Arbeiten, wobei der Zufall oft eine wichtige Rolle spielt.
Eine weitere Idee ist, die kommenden Bauarbeiten zu dokumentieren, so wie er seine eigenen Ausgrabungsversuche dokumentiert hat. In the meantime — yesterday I went to help a friend, Erik Smith, by shooting some Super 8 footage of him digging holes in Berlin. The area they work in gets smaller and smaller as new apartment buildings fill in the gap; soon there will be no space at all. Erik Smith had proposed to the Berlin Senate that he could use sonar to measure the underground structures and gaps, the buried ruins of the site.
Smith wanted to make sculptures out of them, to cast the negative space and make positives out of concrete. But the city declined and so Smith is moving forward on a different scale — digging with a shovel. Along the way the dirt has turned to ash and chunks of burned wood now come up. People pass by and mostly ignore him but one man asked what he was doing.
Was it bombed or just burned down? Who lived there, what happened to them? This is Berlin after all, where local history and world history meet frequently: did the owner die in the camps, or perhaps help organize them? Smith replied he has plans to go to the state archive for that kind of information, but he keeps delaying the trip. He prefers to sustain the period of this kind of discovery, through digging, attending to the soil and ash, in which a different kind of information is possible, one that is not axiomatic or verifiable.
As the real estate developers build all around him, Smith produces an architecture as well, the staircase downward emerging. Is Berlin really the artistic utopia everyone says? American artist Erik Smith found inspiration in the city's soil. They are gloomy places, not much more than awkward, deserted squares of broken cement and grassy outcroppings where people walk their dogs or indulge in a few lonely, contemplative drinks.
Erik Smith, who grew up in Colorado and lived in California before moving to Berlin nine years ago, is creating his latest work in what is known as Skulpturenpark Berlin Zentrum. The owners are planning to develop the property, the main part of which was recently bulldozed to make way for new condos, but for now, it is still an artist's stomping ground. But while other artists transported their magnum opuses to Skulpturenpark, or constructed them on site, Smith decided to see what secrets the park itself had, and dug his creation out of the ground.
What he found was a spiral staircase made of cast-iron encased in a cylindrical brick wall with narrow openings on both sides. The work, entitled Test Dig No. He calls it an exploratory search, an open-ended project on the theme of memory and the city, rather than a historical investigation. I had no idea what I was coming into contact with. For an artist interested in such themes, Berlin is obviously fertile ground, but the city offers other advantages too.
Smith is in the middle of a Berlin phase. This focus on literally excavating a city is new for Smith, whose previous work in California was more about reconfiguring pop cultural history — for instance by making hand-cast records of existing pop albums that then play back a modified version of the original.
