What’s it about Paris Bar at Strausberger Platz?
Just like the KaDeWe or the Ku’damm, Paris Bar represents the story of Berlin’s timeless West. Everything here revolves around itself. And it feels like it has been doing so for 100 years. In contrast to its “great” epoch during the GDR, the Strausberger Platz now stands for a faded utopia and the empty megalomania of the first and last communist state on German soil.
Only slowly city life is managing to set foot on the expansive pavements. On cold days, expect a frosty wind.
From the get-go, our showroom in the “Haus des Kindes” was envisioned as an alien object in these cold surroundings: minimalist concept art in the midst of socialist realism.
Christopher Williams, whom we opened the room with, purposely juxtaposed socialist and capitalist realism. Just below the window, with a clear view to the east (Frankfurter Tor to Moscow), he installed a comfortable living room with posters and editions. In front of our flimsy Franz West-couch, a TV played the Cooking show. A Swiss “Kochsendung”, that Christopher showed in real time. As an example, a pan of soup was in focus for as long as it took for the broth to heat up. The whole thing took 332 minutes and 17 seconds. And as we have come to expect of him, the complete show was hung precisely to a point. What a contrast to the pompous and hollow architecture outside.
And what a contradiction to Paris Bar with its unique air. Art, in every possible and impossible spot; where the last 50 or 60 years of moving history exudes from every crack. A history that has lived through constant ups and downs but that has, through its illustrious guests, stayed riveting to this day: a good mix of intellectuals, artists, beautiful people, and culture tourists. In addition, a few politicians here and there and Rolf Eden. Nearly anybody who thinks anything of themselves drops by regularly or at least, when in town, is seen at Michel’s.
How many times I’ve tried to identify the pictures and objects on the walls and ceilings preserved by cigarette smoke and cooking oil. But of course I never asked Michel what was from whom. That would have felt too much like accounting, although it really would have interested me.
Michel’s experiences with his artist friends or his stories about his third home on Syros were of course even more engrossing.
Michel is an Austrian dandy and a situationist, the exact opposite of me. He knows everybody and has done everything. Michel is Paris Bar – not the other way around. Some evidence: his home looks exactly like Paris Bar, in fact, it looks even better. Because stacks of drawings, photos, posters, and collages tower in every corner of the Paul-Lincke-Ufer (where else could Michel live?). Devotions from 50 years of the art world sit coated in dust in between whole batteries of frame-sewed shoes and tidily ironed and hung pink shirts. That is something that must be experienced I think.
One question especially has always occupied me: How would the works from the Paris Bar look in a “normal” exhibition, set apart from the gastronomic context? And how does Paris Bar look without the Petersburg drapes, how do the naked walls look? Could you show the dry concept art that I love so much there too? The idea of a switch-over was born. The fact that it turned into a charade lies in the nature of its actors.
Michel was on fire after a few short doubts concerning the feasibility. Of course, he immediately developed a concrete idea on what could be shown at the Strausberger Platz: in addition to everything important from Paris Bar and his apartment, 100 further drawings of his, mostly freshly created, were added as well as a joint piece with Christopher Steinmeyer. And our 17 Meter bench was to be plastered with pictures of our glorious times together – how wonderful!
