The Kalashnikovv Gallery was established in 2013 by long term collaborators M.J Turpin and Matthew Dean Dowdle out of frustration with the current South African Contemporary Art world and by extension, the prevailing “white cube” gallery discourse.They chose to create a hybrid space, bouncing to-and-fro between an independent artist run space, project space and commercial gallery space. Another key factor in the gallery’s inception was the decision not to compartmentalize creativity by showing art that is solely validated through academic practice and saleability. the Kalashnikovv ethos will forever champion the progressive alternative, the “outsider”, the artist as curator and the independent artist in all their creative guises and manifestations. Their existence is an endeavor to change perceptions around art, to move the industry forward as a whole, to be a catalyst for change and to make art accessible for all. Kalashnikovv strives to create exhibitions and scenarios that will cause artists, curators and the public to question their own place in this ever evolving art world. Mission Statement: The very nature of art questions the status quo. It gives voice to those who cannot speak. It is a platform for those who are not heard or seen. Kalashnikovv is […]

HIER & JETZT: Connections is an exchange and residency program for artists in exile. The initiative was launched in 2017 by artists of B.L.O. Ateliers in Berlin-Lichtenberg.

Our structure supports the arrival and artistic production of those who recently came to Berlin. With help of our cross-cultural network we organize workshops, artist talks, film screenings, open studios and exhibitions – and sometimes we just have a coffee on the premises of B.L.O. Ateliers. We invite experts and the public to share new social footholds and artistic incentives with people from, among others, Syria, Iran, Iraq and Turkey. Involved artists: Rula Ali, Omar Alshaer, Shirin Ashkari, Mika Clemens, Christa Fülbier, Halim Karabibene, DIE KOMPANIE, Zoltan Kunckel, Irina Novarese, Ramin Parvin, Dachil Sado, Yaser Safi, Özlem Sariyildiz, Uli Westphal, Ali Yass.

The creators of WYKWIT are inhabitants of the house. The building on the Aleja Kochanowskiego street dates back to roughly 1900 and was erected in the Wilhelmsruh district. Back then Wroclaw was the German Breslau. Currently, the house is in a quite dilapidated condition. The original furnishing outside is damaged in many places. Inside there are many brutal rearrangements made by countless tenants. The mansion is surrounded by a large garden. WYKWIT is opposite to a typical white-cube arrangement. Projects presented in WYKWIT should consider its potential, specific and/or contexts. Parallel to the WYKWIT’s activities of an art gallery WARSTWY (Layers) have born- a concept-experimental project focusing its activity on intervention in already existing situation and playing with it. WYKWIT consists of: Karolina Balcer Michal Kamiński Martyna Muth Krzysztof Rubach Janusz Czyżewicz Layers (Adam Martyniak, Michał Mejnartowicz, Karolina Włodek)

The vision of Binyamin Gallery is to offer a chance to visiting curators (well-known as well as young graduates) and guest artists from Israel and abroad.

We provide a professional network to motivate, guide and promote the monthly collaborators, within the art discourse. At the time of the gallery inauguration, in March 2011, the group’s manifesto was presented in the exhibition text by the curator, Gilad Melzer (translated freely from Hebrew: “The opening of a cultural institution, as modest as it may be, in Israel of 2011, is not to be taken for granted. Culture, if at all present on the local radar screen of consciousness, is seen as a weak signal, and the weakest of all is that of plastic arts. Thus the opening of a new gallery, by a collective of artists not driven by the pursuit of material gain, but rather […]
