Once a month ARTCONNECT BERLIN organizes a Networking Breakfast, the most recent of which was held at the Node Center for Curatorial Studies in Kreuzberg. As the title suggests, you eat breakfast whilst chatting and meeting new people, after which time there is a presentation by artists, curators, writers or whoever wants to share information about their creative practice or upcoming project. The presenters last Thursday were Australian curator George Ironside whom spoke about her experiences in working within street art in Berlin and Melbourne, including the development of her artist agency IronartTOURS. The second presenter was Finnish artist Saana Inari who showed a video work and spoke about some upcoming projects. Saana’s work was particularly beautiful; she uses animals as a metaphor for transformation and combines animation with video and performance.
The next Networking Breakfast takes place on March, 15, 2012; 10pm
