friction – potential – respect
When little space remains for the many,
When proximity provokes,
When the insistence of the one displaces others,
Things then become uncomfortable.
exchange - communication
The performance / art event UNGEMUETLICH is concepted and organized
by the Berlin artist and independent curator Frédéric Krauke
as an intercultural exchange through art.
The performance - art event UNGEMUETLICH VI -VIII is organized as an intercultural exchange between Berlin based, international, and Korean-based artists. It has taken place in Berlin, Germany in 2019, in the year of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall and strives to present and address multiple approaches to historical meanings, differences, and analogies between the two countries through art.
This project was planed to take place again in October 2020, the 30th anniversary of the reunification of Germany, as UNGEMUETLICH VII at the LOOP Alternitive Space in Seoul, South Korea. Do to the Covid-19 pandamic and it's glabal effects, the event has been postponed to November 2021. Dispite these difficulties it claims to create an improving and developing exchange between the participant artists and the audiences. Meanwhile the SORO Performance Unit has invited Mr. Frederic Krauke as a participating artist to the Liberation Narritives, which has taken place at GyeongGi Peace Plaza_Gallery in Uijeongbu city GyeongGi-do province, November 16-22, 2020. This ambitious exhibition commemorates the 67th anniversary of the ceasefire agreement in Korea and the 31th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in Germany. In addition to researching artistic themes on borders between nations, exchange exhibitions are held to promote peaceful solidarity and meaning.
“The diverse language of traditional, idealistic, abstract, artistic and symbolic actions connected with performance art might be understood as a request for respect for humanity, for freedom of expression and existence, for the desire and hope for peace - despite cultural, historical, political, and contemporary differences.” Frédéric Krauke, 2018

Goseong Unification Observatory area during the DMZ Art Festa 2018
The main idea of the project lost borders is to remove the ink-drawing that Frédéric Krauke created on the
windows of an abandon observatory gardhouse in in the Goseong Unification Observatory area during
the DMZ Art Festa 2018 and take it out of the DMZ. On its north side the drawing shows the
landscape of North Korea, on its east side the ocean and horizon and on its south side the
landscape of South Korea. There are no borders structures to be seen in the drawing of the
landscape. When seen from the outside, from the north or from the south, the drawing of the
landscape crossfades into a new landscape that combines both north and south into a state of
Now that what was once military material has been transformed into a drawing, Frédéric Krauke has moved
this artwork out of the DMZ and have exhibited it at UNGEMÜTLICH VI and at the exhibitionn UnWall in 2019.
잃어버린 경계 - “UNGEMÜTLICH VI” 중
프로젝트 잃어버린 경계 의 주 된 아이디어는 프레드릭 크라우케 Frédéric Krauke 가 2018년 ‘DMZ 아트 페스타 ’(DMZ Art Festa) 기간 동안 고성 통일 전망대 (Goseong Unification Observatory) 지역의 버려진 관측소의 창문에 작업한 잉크 드로잉을 제거하는 것 이었습니다.
드로잉은 북쪽으로는 북한의 풍경 , 동쪽은 바다와 수평선 , 남쪽은 한국의 풍경을 보여줍니다 . 이 풍경 드로잉에는 보이는 경계선 구조가 없습니다.
북쪽 또는 남쪽 의 창문 바깥쪽에서 본다면 이 풍경 드로잉은 북쪽과 남쪽을 결합한 잃어버린 경계 상태의 새로운 풍경으로 크로스 페이드 됩니다.
프레드릭 크라우케 의 목표는 , 한 때 는 군물자였으나 그의 드로잉으로 인해 변형 된 이 작품을 DMZ 에서 베를린으로 이동하여 제 6 회 불편한 기운 에 전시 하는 것입니다
