About Us

about „Berlin meets…“

The concept of „Berlin meets…“ was elaborated by Kunstleben Berlin www.kunstleben-berlin.de.

In 2010, a gallery in New York invited Kunstleben Berlin for the first time by to organise a joint exhibition called „Gestalt – German Artists in Conversation. The exhibition was so well received that the project was meant to be continued. The promise to present in return a joint exhibition in Berlin was the birth of „Berlin meets New York“.

We can look back with pride and joy on ten joint exhibitions. Many friendships have developed between the artists, the gallery owners and visitors. Of course, we do not want to conceal how much work, trouble, money, nerves, etc. the organization around the exhibitions has cost. All that glitters is not always gold! But when the vernissage of the exhibition took place with many art-loving spectators, the joy of „Berlin meets New York“ displaced all previous efforts.

And yes, what worked so wonderful with New York, making Berlin art visible and tangible outside the borders of its own country, should also work with other cities. Indeed, sometimes coincidences help. We met a representative of Taiwan in Germany at an art dinner and he was so enthusiastic about the concept with New York that „Berlin meets Taipei“ was born.

The project was supported by the German Foreign Office and the official representatives of both countries.
