SURVIVE! – Who and what is taking shape here?
Alongside museums, galleries, and other kinds exhibition spaces, art project spaces and initiatives are an important factor in Berlin’s art scene and they have a unique artistic mission. Real estate and capital markets are putting pressure on the scene, so that project space initiators struggle to defend their spaces and survive. Their independence allows for a certain kind of distance from the market pressure of commercial galleries. But herein lies a dilemma: How to survive and retain the power to act?
