Galerie ART CRU Berlin is Berlin’s first gallery focusing on art produced by people with pychiatric 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.

In 2008, Gallery ART CRU Berlin was founded with a particular idea in mind: to create new opportunities in this area. Having developed a network of artists, workshops, associations and companies, we are now in a position to exhibit and promote particularly talented artists not only regionally, but also nationally and internationally. On the other hand, we also present and publicise the works of international artists by showing their work at Galerie ART CRU Berlin. In addition, we see it as our duty to represent these artists not only in exhibitions, but also at art fairs and various other contests, thereby helping them to be more widely recognized.

Galerie ART CRU Berlin is a member of Landesverband Berliner Galerien
