The Gorki was never one for navel-gazing. And now, in the corona crisis, that's more true than ever – we have to look beyond the ends of our noses and oppose the general trend toward isolation with an undernational perspective. What's happening right now in Lebanon, England, Mexico, Belarus, Serbia and the Congo? In this global crisis, how are artists faring in other parts of the world?
In Berlin Calling… Gorki artists speak with other artists around the world, creating an overview from which a bigger picture emerges. At its heart are personal reports – transnational, undernational.
