In light of recent events taking place in Ukraine, the gallery displayed solidarity by painting all its walls black in a symbolic action on the 27.02.2022. The war has immensely impacted us. Proceeding on without making a statement seemed unfathomable. The black gallery walls will serve as the background to Bruck’s works. For the occasion of the exhibition, we will donate to these two organizations: ARTISTS at RISK (AR) and Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
ARTISTS at RISK (AR) is a non-profit organization at the intersection of human rights and the arts. Since 2013 AR has been collaborating with arts non-profits and government funders to assist artists who are at risk politically and fleeing oppression and war globally. MSF provides emergency medical aid worldwide in crisis and war zones and after natural disasters. The international organization helps quickly, efficiently and unbureaucratically – without asking about the origin, religion or political conviction of the people affected. Further information and direct ways to donate at: artistsatrisk.org and aerzte-ohne-grenzen.de.
Galerie ART CRU Berlin is Berlin’s first gallery focusing on art produced by people with psychiatric disorders or mental disabilities. The aim of the gallery is to promote and introduce such artists, most of them self-taught and usually standing on the edge of the established art scene. These people are often denied the opportunity to develop a professional expertise as an artist, as they often encounter many difficulties in the process. This is why our focus is to reduce the distance between the established art world and their more original, unadulterated artworks.
