Title: press release - new art quarter

Thursday, August 30 2001:

Berlin's newest Art Quarter
opens its doors at Jannowitzbrücke in the
S-Bahn Arches 46-50

After ’Mitte' and ’Zimmerstrasse' at Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin art scene moves into its third and latest quarter, the S-Bahn Bögen - train arches - at the Jannowitzbrücke. The new address for international contemporary art is located on Holzmarktstrasse 15-18 - close to Alexanderplatz, right next to the Spree River.
In the S-Bahn Arches 49-50, BüroFriedrich will set up its permanent residence in continuation of its participation in the second Berlin Biennial of this year. BüroFriedrich's international exchange program that began in 1997 will be continued at this new location with the exhibition 4 FREE, the third part of City under the Sky, a collaborative project with the DAAD and the Hamburger Bahnhof. This project explores the intersections of art, science and politics. Asking more than 20 international artists to show their works in the four arches, 4 FREE focuses on aesthetic survival strategies in particular. The exhibition opens on October, 6, at the weekend of the Art Forum Berlin. 4 FREE will be accompanied by the symposium Freedom's just another word that will take place in November.

Mehdi Chouakri moved from Paris to Berlin in 1996, opening his gallery in the Gipsstrasse. He is leaving the Scheunenviertel to move with his new gallery partner Edzard Brahms into the
S-Bahn Arch 47. The inaugural show will present an installation by the Berlin-based Italian artist Monica Bonvicini and will be opened on September, 7.

Galerie Max Hetzler is opening an additional space in the
S-Bahn Arch 48 for international contemporary art and will begin by showing videos from the Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra. The opening is September, 7.

c/o Atle Gerhardsen is moving his gallery from Oslo to Berlin and will be located next to Chouakri Brahms Berlin. He starts with an exhibition by the Berlin-based Swedish artist Annika Ström, contributing to the diversity of the Berlin art scene. The opening is October, 6.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new space and will soon send detailed information on the 4 FREE program.
