Today, two new projects from our group of 23 Associate Curators, come to life: the BEYOND COMMEMORATION series curated by Dovrat Meron and the SHADOWS series curated by Laura Biagioni.

Today, starting at 19:00 at OKK Gallery in Wedding, you can see an exhibition of the work of the participating artists: Birgit Auf der Lauer, Moran Sanderovich, Valeria Schwarz & Maik Kerner. The exhibition runs until June 2nd. Performances will take place on the 26th.
