Description

In GlogauAIR artists from diverse social and geographical backgrounds find a place to develop their works in a dynamic environment of coexistence, exchange of ideas and internationalization. At the same time they get to know a new culture and landscape in Berlin, getting influences from de city, which has became a pioneer place for contemporary culture.

The non profit organization GlogauAIR was founded by the Spanish artist Chema Alvargonzález in 2006 with the intention to create a meeting point between artists from all disciplines to work in collaboration, expanding their practice in terms of materials, formats and style. Parallel to the residency program and the open studios GlogauAIR organizes activities and exchange projects in collaboration with other institutions such as video art, sound art or performance festivals, exhibitions or artist presentations, where they invite local public, art lovers and professionals.

Outcome

Every three months doors are open to the public in the form of Open Studios exhibition, where the artists show their work in a site-specific and process based format. For the occasion GlogauAIR edits a small catalogue with texts and photos by the artists. Besides the Open Studios exhibition, GlogauAIR invites curators and other cultural initiatives to exhibit their works in its project space on the ground floor of the building.
