Watercolours? Male artists only? Especially in Germany this concept seems somewhat weird.
We are showcasing different perspectives on watercolours, with distinctive choices on techniques and materials. In order to be somewhat puristic, we have only framed five of the works. The variety of the oeuvre will be perceivable going through the maps with additional works which are part of the show. I am glad and deeply thankful to the participating artists, that they all agreed to show their watercolours in this unconventional way. This is one reason for the title of the show, as it translates to something like „jumping into the cold water“ in German.
The artist line-up comprises positions which are mostly (too) rarely shown in Berlin, both young and established artists. Most of them are better known for other media. Wrongly, in my eyes. Please allow some introductory remarks by an art lover, who is not a graduated art historian.
