SUPERUSCHI

 

SUPERUSCHI was launched by Berlin-based artist and curator Jonny Star in March 2013 and ended in June 2017. SUPERUSCHI was a further development of Star´s art projects SWEET HOME (2011 - 2013) and JONNY'S (2007 - 2009). Conceptual changes and process-oriented developments made ​​a name change necessary. The SUPERUSCHI show kitchen girls & toy boys at Rush Arts Gallery, NYC was supported by the Berlin Senate Cultural Affairs Department in 2015.

SUPERUSCHI was a not-for-profit artist initiative with a social vision.

Jonny Star developed events as an exploratory artistic act to take place in specific venues (either within private or staged private living spaces). Participating international artists and performers were given a theme to reflect upon, and with the given theme, individually or collaboratively, create material for the SUPERUSCHI event. The result was a temporary "show" that psychologically alters the physical location according to possibility and chance, combining the intended or unintended interactions of the space, the objects, and the artists and guests, all in the spirit of social sculpture. In a SUPERUSCHI show, simultaneously and equally different disciplines and traditions were shown, and during the exhibition events were organized. The participating artists came together at a SUPERUSCHI show for the first time or came together on a regular basis, so a SUPERUSCHI show created a social gathering which generated new friendships and activities. It belonged to the concept of a SUPERUSCHI show that the participating artists are present at openings and special events.

A primary concern of Jonny Star is that the guests of these shows are given the opportunity to experience being an integral part of the art, therefore increasing their awareness of the importance of the visual and performing art for an individual and for a community.
