For the duration of the Biennale arte 2019, the German Pavilion will be declared an Ankersentrum.

In search of the unstable forms and possibilities of survival, resistance and solidarity, ruins are continually occupied, rededicated, rebuilt, inhabited. While the ruin itself is of less interest, its appropriation is a matter of extreme urgency. The Ankersentrum consists of an expansive installation; its structural, sculptural and sonic elements open up the space of the German Pavilion for an immediate somatic experience.

An essential part of the artistic contribution is the publication „Ankersentrum (surviving inthe ruinous ruin)“, designed by Maziyar Pahlevan and published by Archive Books. it contains poems, drawings, photographs and texts by Natascha Süder Happelmann, Nida Ghouse, Franciska Zólyom, Helene Duldung, Rheim Alkadhi, Aino Korvensyrjä, David Jassey, Rex Osa, Jasper Kettner, Fritz Lazlo Weber and Felix Meyer.

The artist creates works in the fields of installation, performance, text, and sound. She repeatedly allows her practice to flow into collective processes, and addresses the collectiveand transdisciplinary aspect of artistic work.
