Group art exhibition with Roberto Abuin, Joe Hornby, Nadine Hattom, Marco Pando, Lisa Premke, Rawan Serhan, Eduardo Suarez

Seven practitioners from different cultural and professional backgrounds have joined together to explore interconnections of their four mother-tongues: Spanish, Arabic, English and German.
Languitecture is inspired by anthropology, philology and linguistics, aiming to naturally connect to a broad audience because communication and reinvention of culture is a prevailing and current issue. Built on the notion of art as a language of images and rhythms, the authors are driven by the curiosity to witness an accelerated evolving layering of languages, cultures and media develop into space.

From sculptures, sound installations, dance, visual art and more, the exhibition seeks to experiment on how different cultures might battle, influence, connect or align using a fundamental and universal element of culture: language.

Language constantly evolves. Varying degrees of similarity between each of our languages is evidence of a rich history of language migration, shared genealogies, and comfortably forgotten histories of adjacency. In addition, connections persist between speech patterns and intonations of different languages. Languitecture will reflect on this morphing principle through collaboration and interpretation of each participant’s work, spatially translating the pieces through different stages and artistic mediums.
