The drawings of Katharina Berndt are maendering between the cut surfaces of literature and illustration, of music and score, of imagination and reality. Its shapes and structures are expression of an intuitive and self-reflective mode of operation. She experiments with the line as an abstract renarration of a shape or an outline and draws animate beings – men, animals or plants. In the play of layouted lines and surfaces marvellous creatures are coming to life, which are converted as drawings, prints or projections.

LichtRouten-Standort: Old cinema, Wilhemstreet 56
The Capitol theatre at the upper Wilhelmstreet opened in 1907 as one of the first cinemas (“Central-Theater”, later “Schauburg”) with 320 seats. The cinema was located in the upper level while the hotel and restaurant “Berliner Hof” was situated on the ground floor. In the 1930s the cinema was renamed “Capitol” and was operated until the early 1990s. Today it is used temporarily.
