Final exhibition of UNBOUND

THE SPACE BETWEEN is the final exhibition of UNBOUND, Germany's first transdisciplinary residency program for artists with and without disabilities. The residency and exhibition are part of the supporting program of the Special Olympic World Games 2023.


The exhibition presents six artists who live and work in Berlin and have explored the theme of connection, which is the motto of the Special Olympic World Games 2023.

The artists differ in many ways in terms of gender, (in)abilities, age and ethnicity. They work in different genres such as painting, sculpture, photography, sound, performance, installation and poetry.

Macks Querfeldt presents multimedia collages that deal with the need to show solidarity with others in order to survive. In his artworks he examines the intricate and complex web of connections that binds humanity together.


Heike Bolling focuses on human processes of healing and repairing. Her works explore the profound aspects of connection and show the power of empathy, compassion and relationship restoration.


Catherine Rose Evans' view of gravity and tension manipulates everyday finds that examine these forces. Her artistic exploration explores the physical aspects of connection, revealing the intricate interplay between objects and the forces that bind them.


Language and communication are central to Rita Mazza's art. With a visual sign language performance, she shows the connection between people through the power of words, symbols and gestures.


In a poetic wall drawing, Dennis Meier uses Braille text and invites the viewer to explore the tactile connection between language, communication and perception. His works are inclusive and offer a multi-sensory experience.


The sculptural installations by Asako Shiroki invite viewers to immerse themselves in the realms of perception. Through her work, the artist explores the complex ways in which people perceive and connect with their environment.


Using their diverse approaches and media, the artists present thought-provoking artworks about the intricacies of human relationships and the various forms in which they manifest themselves.


In addition, the exhibition space CLB Berlin will become an interactive open space in which visitors can create creative connections themselves.

The aim of the residency and the exhibition is to positively change the cultural landscape of Berlin by promoting inclusion and improving accessibility for artists, cultural workers, participants and audiences with and without disabilities.


Visitors with different perception abilities should be able to visit the exhibition, for example with tactile tours.


A program of workshops and talks forms the supporting program of the exhibition.


The exhibition will be opened on June 10th at 5 p.m. by Secretary of State for Sport Dr. Nicola Böcker-Giannini opens.


The residency and exhibition take place as part of the supporting program of the Special Olympic World Games. They were funded by the Berlin Senate and supported by the following partners: House of World Cultures, Bauhaus Archive, Berlinische Galerie, Pfefferberg Foundation, Brotfabrik, Diversity Arts Culture.
Organized by CLB Berlin, curated by Berlinklusion


In response to the lack of financial and creative support in Germany for deaf, disabled or neurodivergent artists, or non-disabled artists with additional access needs, particularly in the field of visual arts, Berlinklusion has developed the UNBOUND project as an accessible residency programme.


Berlinklusion is Berlin's network for accessibility in art and culture, which aims to positively change the Berlin cultural landscape by promoting inclusion and improving accessibility for artists, cultural workers, participants and audiences with and without disabilities.
