Galerie Berlin Baku

Galerie Berlin Baku

The exhibition “Where ART you from?” was shown from January 23 to March 3, 2018 at the Gallery Berlin-Baku in the Tempelhof-Schöneberg district of Berlin. The gallery, founded in 2007 by the artist Ebrahim Ehrari and others, was directed by Parwane Ehrari from March 2014 to August 2018. The gallery owner interprets art as a means of intercultural understanding, interpersonal community and mutual recognition, and particularly promotes artists from different backgrounds. The focus of her activities lies in the field of contemporary fine arts. For the exhibition, she worked closely with the curators Jessica Fritz, Julia König and Anna Mohrdiek.


Gesellschaft inklusiv gestalten

GIG – GESELLSCHAFT INKLUSIV GESTALTEN e. V. was founded in Berlin in the summer of 2016. Driven by the central question “How does inclusion work?”, the association organises the exchange of ideas between people with family migration and/or disability experiences, their relatives, their social environment and entities and people that assist them. At the beginning of 2017, the registered association was granted non-profit status. Since then, it has been supporting and advising persons focusing on inclusion and their projects. The exhibition “Where ART you from?” was the first joint project of the curators and GIG. The association took over infrastructural and administrative tasks.
