Extreme Crafts, Freies Museum, Berlin

YNKB participates in the exhibition EXTREME CRAFTS, Freies Museum, Potsdamer Str. 91, Berlin
curated by Ulrike Solbrig, Jole Wilcke, Hilde Methi.
The exhibition brings together current approaches in art that deal with the ethical and aesthetic
dimension of craft and its potency as an idea in art. We want to highlight different ways to bring
art and craft together to produce “a productive confusion within the normal hierarchy of cultural prestige”.
YNKB presents Repair workshops Saturday August the 4th 12 – 6 and Sunday August the 5th, 3 – 6.
YNKB has invited artist Anja Franke as special guest with WASTE SERVICE TEA BAR.

People’s Museum Book – book reception

YNKB Baldersgade 70 st tv
Palestinian food will be served

It might sound odd that a people such as the Palestinian, living in one of the world’s oldest cultures,
at a place where three world religions were founded, with an extremely rich history since thousands
of years would need another museum. But this is a special museum, created by a group of Danish
artists together with their Palestinian colleagues, with and for the people in one village, Birzeit,
without any specific selection principles, without any other aim than listening to some individuals and
their stories, and together with the people in the village remember the history for this specific place.
It is not necessarily a directly political project, although of course many people in the village feel a need
to talk about the effects of the Israeli occupation. There is no tendency, no propaganda. We meet the old
peace-maker, listen to his story about old christian families, and share his proverbial wisdom, we meet
proud car owners, we learn how to make really good bread in a traditional owen, but also the Facebook youngsters,
the bar owner who would rather like to put something up in Ramallah, and women — mainly mothers and wives.
… Hundreds of years being part of various empires, and now under a painful occupation, robbed generations of
Palestinians of their own history. To build a museum, to collect stories is a peaceful, and meaningful investment
in the future for a people. It is an act of hope.
– From the introduction by the Swedish art theorist and critic Gertrud Sandqvist
