Tuesday to Saturday 3.30- 8 pm
The title of the exhibition is taken from the book ‘Wir nennen es Arbeit – die digitale Bohème oder: intelligentes Leben jenseits der Festanstellung’ by economist and journalist Holm Friebe (b. 1972) and publicist Sascha Lobo (b. 1975). The book describes the origin of a new, freelance working-class, whose people autonomously decide their own jobs through the use of new technology.
Their touching analysis of a life form orientated towards the future is inspired by the idea of working in the same way one want to live. In this way the artists called to join this big collective exhibition are, in an almost self-ironic way, stating their passion for their own work and for being an artist today.
There is no specific theme tying together the works of the 56 artists who live and work in Berlin and relate themselves to painting, photography, sculpture and drawing, but there is an aesthetics which is common to all their works: all of them have small dimensions and are mainly in black and white. Hence the exhibition presents the mapping of today’s artistic scene in Berlin, putting in contact the renowned artists with the young emerging ones.
