pilote is pleased to present the exhibition “The horizon looks different from afar.“ After several smaller group exhibitions, there now will be an extensive presentation of all of pilote’s artistic positions at Kunstquartier Bethanien’s Studio 1.
The works shown reflect the confrontation with socially highly topical questions, which deal with the omnipresent topic of the border and the different perceptions correlating with its terminus: What is a border, which connotations go hand in hand with its manifold use and contemplation? And how is their symbolism understood and represented in the collective imaginary in the various socio-cultural spheres?
The aim of the exhibition is to approach this very complex topic artistically. The result are reflections of the artists, which are primarily based on personal experiences and individual considerations. It is not about anticipation or answering the above mentioned questions.
pilote reacts to current socio-political developments and offers approaches at the artistic level that draw attention, stimulate reflection and perhaps encourage the willingness to examine one’s own feelings and open up possible debates. To this end, the exhibiting artists filter out differentiated dimensions of the theme that are particularly relevant to them against their respective artistic backgrounds and finally express their own assumptions in photography, film, graphics, performance, installation and sculpture, in some cases also multidisciplinarily.
Exhibition duration: 08.03. – 10.03.2019

Pilote is pleased to present its third exhibition pilote:milieu. On display at CLB Berlin will be sculptures, photographs, video works, as well as multimedia installations by four pilote artists. Their artistic works meet at the interface of conceptual art and interdisciplinary practice.
The title of the exhibition is based on the discussions about multiple environmental concepts that have been taking place since the beginning of the 20th century in various scientific disciplines. Not only in biology, sociology, and psychology but also in the field of art, decisive questions have been asked and responses generated. Specific terms such as environment, medium, milieu or situation are ubiquitous.
Thus, it is increasingly becoming the case that individual disciplines of science and art merge with one another and examine their adaptability – voluntarily or compulsorily. Intensive, provocative and / or inspiring connections emerge that stimulate new nuances of thinking about the environment and habitat. Some impressive positions are presented in the exhibition.A milieu is generally designated as the totality of natural and social conditions of living: it includes all factors that affect, change or create an environment for a living being or a society.
Within pilote:milieu the artists explore by various formal approaches the spatial environments and encounters which are taking place in them. Natural and artificial environments, territories, different materials, and the space-time-delimitation that determines them play an elementary role in the artworks shown. Partly they refer to current political affairs of our society. The exhibition creates its own milieu, a situation of encounter for the visitor to explore.
An absolute novelty shown in this exhibition is the collaboration between the artists Theresa Schubert and Attilio Tono. The first joint work is a “living” sculpture in which organic and inorganic substances meet and evolve.

After a first group show in fall 2016 pilote has presented four of their artists in a more intimate setting in Berlin-Mitte.
The group exhibition p i l o t e : t o p ‘ o – g r a p h ‘ i – c a l reflects on the artists’ working processes which form the basis for a discussion about spatiality and space: inside, outside, abstract and objective. All represented artists strictly focus on the exploration of diversities between the subjective, aesthetical cognition of places, areas, spaces and landscapes. But everyone with a signature twist! They create depth through different inter media approaches. The observer is being served with new impact levels and is getting introduced to new perspectives. Further more the range between space development and space dissolution will be proven.
Photography is the origin of each artwork shown. Different media effects are used as an obvious expansion of the medium. This path constitutes procedural similarities in the works of VALENTINA TORRADO (URY), KATHRIN GANSER (GER), DANIELA ZEILINGER (AUT) and SARAH STRASSMANN (GER). Both sectional and multi dimensional, the artists depict spaces that are originally formed by nature or man-made or create completely new ones.
The central theme dissolution of space renders a possible new perception outside of a usual view and reveal the (pretended) real behind an object. The object depicted is displayed concretely, idealized or abstracted. A unique media diversity of all works shown and their particular image aesthetics reflect a contemporary contemplation and identification with the artists’ environments.
OPENING: March 31st, 2017, 7 -10 pm

pilote : pilote is pilote´s first pop-up exhibition and its introduction into the Berlin art scene. Around eighty works will occupy a 1.000 m² space, located in a building complex of the SEZ in Berlin-Friedrichshain reviving it as an art space. The works shown depict a unique and impressive diversity of contemporary art forms, some of which include Fine Art Photography, Post Media Art, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Film and Video installation.
At first glance, the strong appearing heterogenity of the shown positions opens not only interesting discourses about the arts, but also finds its harmony within the exhibition’s interpretational concept. The media spectrum of the art works shown and the artist’s incongruent approaches of contents visualize the current occupation with the contexts about reality and truth, nature and science. They display latest perceptions and tendencies within contemporary art and let the audience feel them.
