The revolving deck with its obliging animals skims the surface of the ground. It is at the height best suited to dreams of flying.
Walter Benjamin, “The Carousel” From Berlin Childhood Around 1900

A Carousel is a reflection of the city, appeal to us through glowing dancing lights and its repetitive cadence, symbolizes an evocative melancholy, as do modern media and contemporary art, which evolve and dialog with the city, as one of those twinkling stars in the night. The show Carousel brings a selection of works that revolve around the absurd, bright and starving city that is the Metropoli, as well as about ugly feelings or uneasy emotions that invade us in such a constant turning, from anxiety to cuteness, in the cracks where private and common spheres breathe together. A constellation of works and experiences from artists that have been collaborating with Raum E116 in the last year.
...In the silence of the night, the music of the carousel could still be heard in the distance.
