Opening/preview - Fri 23 Oct 6.30pm
Exhibition open - 24 Oct - 1 Nov (Fri-Sun 12-6pm or by appointment)

The Idea: Artists from Munich showing their work in other cities and inviting artists from those cities to come present their work in Munich.

COLLABORATION_ is a non profit exhibiting project created by seven Artists living and working in Munich. Who, with the help of different regional, national and international galleries and showrooms, will organize the exchange of artists.

The first exchange of this project will take place with the above artists in April 2009. They will be presenting their work in the International Austellungsraum at doppel_de in Dresden. The invitation for Dresden artists to present theirwork in Munich follows in the summer of 2009. A project room in the Tanzshule on Auenstrasse and also the gallery k4 on Klenzestrasse in Munich will be open for these Artists.

The free project COLLABORATION_ would lilke to strengthen the cultural exchange between Munich and other parts of Germany as well as the rest of Europe and even beyond that. At the same time they would like to create an open Forum for the respective cities they would be visiting outside of Bavaria.

Under the project name COLLABORATION_, the artists understand something about working together. The Achievment comes with actingas a group for the exhibition. The advantages of one person, such as his or her individual network of friends, can be a great support for the entire group. COLLABORATION_, through its development, would make it possible for other artists and also curators to become a part of the project and to carry it on.
