With artists such as Jonathan Meese, Peter Doherty and Baselitz master student Caro Stark, ÜBERSCHAU #02 continues the successful exhibition series in the CSR CONTEMPORARY SHOW ROOM on Friedrichstraße. The second part of the survey exhibition shows works by 25 artists from nine countries, represented by eleven Berlin galleries. Contemporary art from painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking and conceptual art is on display. ÜBERSCHAU #02 offers an extract of the art currently being shown in Berlin galleries. The exhibition opens with a vernissage on 27.05.2022 (19-22 hrs). The experimental exhibition format aims to create more enthusiasm for contemporary art and increase its visibility. From the end of April to the end of September 2022, the temporary art project initiated by the non-profit DEEDS.LAB will present changing exhibitions in the 400 m² exhibition space in QUARTIER 205.

ÜBERSCHAU #02 brings together international art by 25 contemporary artists from China, Germany, England, Israel, Japan, Austria, Slovenia, Ukraine and Turkey. Ten established and in part internationally active Berlin galleries from various districts represent these artists, whose works are shown there in solo and group exhibitions. ÜBERSCHAU #02 wants to arouse curiosity about these exhibitions and encourage visitors to visit the galleries. To this end, CSR shows art away from the classic Berlin gallery quarters, right in the heart of the city. Aimed at a mixed audience of long-time art enthusiasts and people not yet gripped by the passion for art.
The initiator and operator of the CSR CONTEMPORARY SHOW ROOM is the non-profit DEEDS.LAB from Berlin. Its aim is to make contemporary art and the work of its producers and galleries visible in a supportive way, to reduce threshold fears and to get more people excited about contemporary art. With the CSR, DEEDS.LAB wants to test new concepts and formats that make people curious about art, make art education more attractive, create space for discourse and promote social interaction. To this end, DEEDS.LAB has planned various events at the CSR over the next few months. DEEDS.LAB is supported by the Berlin art exhibition portal ART@Berlin (www.artatberlin.com).

About DEEDS.LAB: Following the statement “To love art, you have to understand art”, the non-profit DEEDS.LAB from Berlin is working on formats for a more attractive way of communicating art. It wants to make the younger generation in particular curious about contemporary art. DEEDS.LAB sees an urgent need for formats with a new invitation and mediation culture to lower threshold fears and get more people excited about contemporary art. Art enthusiasts and young collectors must be found, interested, fascinated and built up in order to secure the existence of generations of future artists. In addition, DEEDS.LAB aims to promote artists and to exhibit and make visible contemporary art in the centre and public space of Berlin. In its exhibitions and events, the non-profit organisation enables, promotes and challenges discourse on art and its meaningfulness.
About CSR: CSR opens Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., at events until late. The exhibition series is flanked by vernissages, midissages and finissages, artist talks, lectures, panels and panel discussions. Guided tours through the exhibitions are planned in various languages. On site, visitors will be able to talk to artists in the context of events or deepen what they have seen with art books, art magazines and catalogues.
