ÜBERSCHAU #06 focuses on the figurative. Visitors will encounter works that mainly show people, but also animals and some plants. They appear photographed, painted, drawn or formed as sculptures. One of the highlights of the exhibition is the contemporary mosaic by the Dutch artist Paul Reimert, which consists of hundreds of shards and tiny porcelain collectible animals that have been artfully assembled into a life-size woman. Also impressive are the perfect, photo-realistic oil paintings by the Spanish artist Romulo Celdran, showing people of various ages absorbed in their smartphones. The pointed lighting design in the works, modelling the face out of the darkness, is reminiscent of old Dutch masters. Curiosity and longing drove the Berlin-based artist Inge H. Schmidt into the distance – to Tuva, Buryatia, through Siberia, Tajikistan and Xinjiang. Even though it sometimes seemed to her that she had reached the end of the world, she realised that it was always the encounters with people that touched her the most. Their faces, she says, are inexhaustible sources of inspiration for the artist. “Behind every head I paint, there is a story. I can’t stop ‘telling’ them”.

ÜBERSCHAU #06 brings together international art by 16 contemporary artists from Spain, China, Germany, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands and Poland. Their works are shown in solo and group exhibitions. ÜBERSCHAU #06 FIGURATIV wants to arouse curiosity about these artists and encourage them to visit the gallery. 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. In its exhibitions and events, the non-profit organisation facilitates, promotes and challenges discourse on art and its meaningfulness.
