was kann ich für sie tun - Two-Person Exhibition, Franziska Harnisch and Dan Allon, Circle 1 Gallery, Berlin, 2020 

The exhibition was held online, for 6 weeks. The content was uploaded entirely during the week to the event page, following (when possible) the program, which was initially planned for Circle 1 Gallery in 

Initially planned as a physical two-person exhibition at Circle 1 gallery in Berlin, the exhibition was kann ich für sie tun shifted quickly online, modifying itself due to Coronavirus. The exhibition deals with bureaucracy, especially German but not only, in many ways. Allon brought his immigrant life, and Harnisch her German/local life, both fighting against the mountains of paperwork and frustration. The exhibition was also based on several open calls, and the two artists acted as the curators and producers of the exhibition as well. was kann ich für sie tun means what can I do for you, in German, a very known passive-aggressive way to give service politely.


The exhibition had three levels:

 

  • performances streamed live on Facebook and/or linked from Youtube

  • a personal take on the subject, each one of the artists produced relevant content, and also communicated through the fake identity of #WKIFST

  • talks/lectures/consultation of experts, broadening the term of democracy, connecting it to finance, art, creativity, wellness, and more.
