In Das Giftraum – the exhibition space inside Das Gift Eckkneipe – Looking Glass Collective presents Virtues and Vices, a group exhibition featuring work by Chiizii, Henok Getachew and Ngadi Smart; exploring adopted relationships with various objects, commodities and behaviours and the ways in which we use them as a coping mechanism in everyday life.

Henok Getachew is an Ethiopian Berlin-based visual artist. He experiments with found materials and conceptual elements across painting, video, installation, performance and mixed media.
Ngadi Smart is a Sierra Leonean artist based in Côte d’Ivoire. She works predominantly with photography and illustration, exploring identity, feminism and sexuality through an African lens.
