Prototypical Triangle: Berlin Church Roof Destroyed on April 3, 1945, reimagined

For her first solo exhibition in Germany, the American artist Alice Adams has created an expansive, two-part installation. Her inspiration for the work comes from the roof truss of the monastery church, which was destroyed in 1945. Adams’s installations, which are always site specific, stage the mostly invisible conditions of public spaces and by virtue of a ghostly theatricality, evoke the neglected and repressed dimensions of social coexistence.
