Exhibition // 09. October - 18. October 2011
Intersection is an exhibition presenting works by twelve international artists who have at some point lived and worked in the city of Berlin.
Some of them are still living and practicing here, while others are now creating their work in other parts of the world. For this group show they come together once again for a temporary reunification.
As an ideal place for young and emerging artists, the city of Berlin not only serves as a “Schnittpunkt" (German for "Intersection") for their life's journey, but also creates intersections with each other's artwork.
Despite their unique differences, all of the artwork in the exhibition seems to serve the same purpose: to inspire the viewer to be touched by an original thought, a hidden surprise, or an unexpected moment in the blink of an eye. If this kind of communication between the viewer and the artwork actually takes place then the most important of all intersections will be reached.
Participating artists: Irini Bachlitzanaki, Katrin Caspar, Jennida Chase & Hassan Pitts (S/N Coalition), Christina Fischer, Yujin Lee, Igor Mihajlovic, Jonne Pitkanen, Markku Metso & Martin Bircher, Eeva-Liisa Puhakka, Miki Watanabe
