„Project spaces versus market and galleries — mutual perceptions
Project spaces have existed for several decades in Berlin. In the 1980’s they were overwhelmingly places where subcultures celebrated a joy in experimentation and diversity. Today, project spaces are often marked by their sleek professional appearance in terms of programme and presentation. Have they thus lost their heart or have they grown? Do the old laws of opposition to the commercial establishment still apply? How are they perceived by other sectors of the art market? This panel discussion will seek to clarify the insider view as well as perceptions from various other viewing angles.
