What is KLEISTER:
KLEISTER brings photography and the public roam together. the KLEISTER concept is to produce one day photo exhibitions.
All participating photographers will meet at a specific, very well chosen place and paste their image(s) directly on the wall with Tapetenkleister. The idea is to meet, to talk, to get to know others – and all this in a public place. This is how the pictures become part of the street and are open for everyone passing by. At the end of the day the Photographers can choose if they want to leave their image(s) or take them down. In the evening there will be a finnisage with a slide show (showing the pictures of the day) in a bar nearby.
First ‚Kleister’: KLEISTER 2012 took place on the wall along the Görlitzer Park in Kreuzberg in September 2012. This show was organized with the domino effect, which means 10 invited photographers invited 2 other photographers each and they invited two others again.
Second ‚Kleister’: KLEISTER NORD takes place in the Gleimtunnel between Prenzlauer Berg and Wedding on 24th November 2012. This time all photographers from the KLEISTER 2012 show and photographers who will exhibit with ‚Kleister’ for the first time are invited to take part. All participants are called to reflect in their exhibited photos on the theme ‚Berlin’ .
Kleister was inspired by the Planket photo exhibition from Sweden. Planket means fence in Swedish and the show takes its name from the place where it is hung, a red fence (planket), along the side of a park. Planket started in 1982 and besides from a break (1994-2007) has been running every year. It is always a one-day show that is accompanied by a catalogue and a party in the evening. In 2011 Planket came to Berlin and we are now continuing to show photography along the wall under the new name Kleister.
