ÜBERSCHAU #04 brings together international art by 25 contemporary artists from Brazil, China, Germany, England, Canada, Austria, Sweden and Taiwan. Seven established and in part internationally active Berlin galleries from different districts represent some of these artists. Their works will be shown in solo and group exhibitions.
ÜBERSCHAU #04 wants to arouse curiosity about these artists and encourage them to visit galleries. To this end, CSR shows art away from the classic Berlin gallery quarters, in the heart of the city, and specifically to 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 gallery owners visible and supportive. It wants to reduce threshold fears and get more people excited about contemporary art. With the CSR, DEEDS.LAB tests new concepts and exhibition formats that arouse curiosity about art, make art education more attractive, create space for discourse and promote social interaction. To this end, DEEDS.LAB organises various events at the CSR. 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. The non-profit organisation enables, promotes and challenges discourse about art and its meaningfulness in its exhibitions and events.
About CSR: Unlike traditional galleries, CSR opens Mondays to Saturdays from 10 am to 8 pm, longer during events. The exhibitions are accompanied by vernissages and finissages, artist talks, readings and panel discussions. Guided tours of the exhibitions are available in various languages. On site, visitors can talk to artists in the context of events or deepen what they have seen with art books, art magazines and catalogues.
CSR Contemporary Show Room is made possible and supported by ART@Berlin UG, operator of various platforms for contemporary art (artatberlin.com, deeds.news, deeds.world, artcompass.berlin).
