For more than thirty years, galerie weisser elefant has offered young, emerging artists the chance to reach a broad audience right in the city’s most important gallery district, completely free of any commercial pressures. The gallery organizes site-specific solo exhibitions as well as thematic group exhibitions focusing on contemporary socio-political issues, artistic research, and spatial experiments. In cooperation with Jugend im Museum e.V., galerie weisser elefant offers educational programs for school and KiTa groups during exhibitions.
Spacious installations, photography and painting have been exhibited here in recent years and found their place on the first floor of an old brick building in Auguststraße. This year, the question is how the accessibility and social sustainability of exhibition spaces can be strengthened and to what extent interdisciplinary collaborations and artistic processes as collective experience and participation, can reinforce this process. This year’s collaboration is intended to promote a diverse and open platform and enable interdisciplinary and (neighbourhood) strengthening structures and experiments.
