On January 7th, Neue Berliner Räume will present their next exhibition, CLAIM. The show aims to present works united by their reliance on a direct aesthetic presence rather than a conceptual background.
Using a backdrop of a disused factory building, CLAIM will feature works of painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, and video and sound art by the artists Christian Achenbach, Giuseppe Armenia, Carlo Bernardini, David Buckingham, Guido Canziani Jona, Jesper Carlsen, Paolo Grassino, Douglas Henderson, Philip Loersch, Jacopo Mazzonelli, Christoffer Munch Andersen, John O’Connor, Kaspar Oppen Samuelsen, Domenico Piccolo, Federico Pietrella, Christoph Schirmer, Moritz Schleime, Owen Schuh, Secret Stars**, Klaus-Martin Treder and Per Wizén.

Dramatic gestures and distinct emotional perspectives are integrated into many of the works, exploring the possibilities of an intuitive response and realizing an emotive language that overwhelms an intellectual approach.
The exhibition is curated by Manuel Wischnewski with assistance by Dr Marc Wellmann (Director of exhibitions, Georg-Kolbe-Museum Berlin).
