Enormous gold bitcoins fall against the background of a shimmering swimming pool, as a young man nonchalantly surfs through the frame on one of the coins. The German-Albanian media artist Anna Ehrenstein creates futuristic visual worlds and effortlessly makes use of digital media to encourage her audience to reflect critically on stereotypes and the ways in which they are represented. The multiperspectival approach offered by Tools for Conviviality also queries the European view of life in West Africa. In the exhibition, the classical detached documentary perspective is replaced by a collective approach of on-site oral and visual research carried out with artists and cultural actors based in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. The artist receives a cash prize for her visionary approach to visual storytelling, and will be honored with the solo exhibition Anna Ehrenstein . Tools for Conviviality at C/O Berlin. An accompanying publication will appear on the occasion of the exhibition, published by Spector Books (edited by Dr. Kathrin Schönegg on behalf of the C/O Berlin Foundation) with texts by US theoretician Emily Watlington, who, together with Ehrenstein as Artist, received the C/O Berlin Talent Award 2020 Theorist.
