Vesselroom Project is an independently run art space based on a post-commercial basis in the transnational centre of Berlin, Kottbusser Tor. With a combination of commercial and non-commercial, formal and informal, renowned and unknown artists and exhibitions, this art space aims to become a meeting point for artists, practitioners and visitors.
Vesselroom Project is a dynamic platform that wants to support artistic production in its many ways, offering a program based on four pillars:
/ Vesselroom Guest are a series of exhibitions where artists encounter. Kottbusser Tor is their meeting point and Vesselroom is the place open to exploration of new media, investigation of theoretical discourses and observation of current trends.
/ Vesselroom Specific offers the possibility to artists to create a unique and temporary piece for the space. All media are welcomed, all possibilities are open. Experimentation and investigation are at the core of this program, that aims to expand exhibition space limits and test new participatory models.
/ Vesselroom Video transforms the exhibition space into a cinema. A selection of video art pieces are displayed, looking into the current and past directions of this media, opening a dialogue between practitioners and enthusiasts.
/ Vesselroom Library is an ongoing project established through the collaboration with diverse visual artists, zine-makers and independent publishing houses.
