Introducing STUDIO 4 BERLIN
By now, we’re all aware that the art market was and still is predominantly male and Eurocentric. Big shows like the Berlin Art Week feature more male artists than female, and the same goes for the people who make the decisions. Within the past couple of years the demand for a diversified art world has become louder - and this call must be answered.
On Thursday July 23 2020, STUDIO 4 BERLIN will open its doors to the public. The newly founded platform has set itself an important mission: to answer the urgent call for change in the art market, and to close the gap between cultures, media, and eras.
Now, what exactly does that mean?
Four fierce female gallery owners want to set an example for a fruitful collaboration in the cultural sector. They all approach their work in a different way, and by putting their unique know-how in dialog aim to present objects in a new, unconventional way at the intersection of art and culture.
Eva Morawietz, PhD, is a specialist for contemporary Southeast-Asian art, particularly photography, digital art, and video art. She is also the director of the Berlin-based gallery Migrant Bird Space, which has shown thought-provoking exhibitions such as China Fever ⻘春症. On top of that, she is also the head of the international pop-up gallery, MO-Industries, in Shanghai. Her strengths lie in curating extraordinary concepts for exhibitions in (amongst others) Berlin, Hong Kong, Peking, Shanghai, Singapore, and Vienna. She has also worked as a curator with the National Gallery in Berlin.
