At Premarts artist Bernard Bolter will be leading an open work space for the collective with the idea of working together and brainstorming about how to make a living in Berlin doing what we love. We invite Berlin artist to come join us and discuss on how to make replicas of their own work and eventually go to the markets of Berlin.
From 9th of July to the 22nd we’re are going to be starting a collective to help Berlin artists enter the free market.
and the part-time jobs around to survive are not really part-time and most likely are 7 days a week at the iPhone factory. These artists use their skills to make replicas for foreigners who come just over the border from Hong Kong. This is one of the only hustles that these artists have to live off their skills and still have the means to make their own art on the side. There’s something to be learned from them.
Oppelner Strasse and its neighbourhood has its histories that wears on it in layers, vibrating to the contemporary tempo of the city in it and around it. Kreuzberg is based on settling, dynamism and remodelling. The city is ever changing and unique. In 2017, a collaboration between PremArts gallery and artists including Joe Hayes and Kwame Aidoo who found a new home in Berlin through the creative spark of its indegenes, started a conversation which has now become the seed project called Görlitzer Park Arts Festival. We look forward to an interactive, exploratory, educative and impactful festival where we can learn and have fun at the same time and breathe love into the city and inhale the beauty of humanity, interconnectedness and community.
MISSION AND VISION
On the topic of sustainability in global cities like Berlin, while addressing the prospects of change agents, we look at ourselves as artists, community members, children of the metrof the urban dynamics, makers, users of space, consumers, curators, bikers, merchants, food lovers, plastic waste collectors, etc. We focus on our direct and indirect responsibilities and how our body languages affect the things around us which in turn affect our anatomies. As such, the project will shine light on key sustainability issues, inclusion, and introduce us to change agents from a variety of disciplines.

Body language embodies the embedded reflections and silent choreographies of political agency In today’s reality of mass migration, voluntary and forced, where bodies resettle away from war and poverty to create diasporic public spheres where new identifications take place and new identities have to be negotiated. The governing maps of migration show that for refuge seekers, there are still key arbiters that define
who belong to the political community (e.g. citizens) and who remain outside (e.g. undocumented migrants). The affinities or rejections from nation states and local forces apropos to migrant bodies enforces codes of conduct that the settler has to adapt to, to survive. Bodies navigate a new language by losing the language their bodies already knew, new gestures and rhythms are engulfed on their anatomies which are also nonetheless ‘political sites’ Furthermore, migrant’s bodies are also sites of collective memory on which collective history, including colonialism, is written.

The Gates of Perception is a series of paintings that combine one photographs transferred to canvas and acrylic paint. The series portrays the gates of the Berlin Customs Wall, which existed from 1737 to 1860, with a combination of historical and present day photographs spanning the city of Berlin from the end of the 19th century to the present day. The gates of the Customs Wall were named after the cities one would travel to when leaving Berlin, in a very outward looking way, and to this day still define the city.
Bernard Bolter is a contemporary American artist who works primarily between the mediums of paint and photography. Having grown up skateboarding in the streets to seeing the world by rolling through international streets, Cityscapes have been his inspiration and material throughout. Raised in the City, Bernard began as and continues to be a San Francisco artist. His work and person is inherently international, having attended art school in the Netherlands, co-founded a non-profit traveling arts organization in Brooklyn, and collaborated on projects in China. He currently works out of San Francisco and Berlin, filling in the betweens.

In doing so they provoke dialogue around the sustained thematic patterns present across an extended period of photographing and making.
