This exhibition presents the work of ten Berlin based artists working in painting. It reflects the international character of Berlin as a European art capital, and includes artists from in Germany, United States, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, France and Denmark. Some of them, like Bernard Frize, Valerie Favre, Thomas Scheibitz and Mark Lammert, are very established Berlin artists.

This event focuses directly on the role of connectedness and community in the development of fertile grounds necessary for the rise of a cultural center. The importance of a geographical place of confluence of artistic ideas and expression has been important throughout history, and remains just as significant in our present time. Equally important to emphasis in this age of virtual experience is the need to engage with works of art directly.
