Short Documentary about the artists from Taumel der Tatsache exhibition, July 2021, Berlin

Frequently, an art exhibition brings together the works of artists, but the reasons and the artistic proposal of those who present their work are not always well understood. Delving into these reasons and why can help to better understand the background of the work.

In this well-made 20-minute video documentary, filmmaker Chrysanthi Goula visited the artists Maria Rapela, Nina Heimlich, Amelia Nin, Birgit Fechner and Nora Sturm in their studios and organised a series of questions to probe into the work and realisation of each artist’s work. The result is a short documentary that shows and reveals aspects of the work, reflection and expression of the visual artists during an exhibition in July 2021 at the K salon, Berlin-kreuzberg.

The exhibition was realised in the context of Art Up’s support programme for artists and mentorshiops, Erfolg im team.

I have decided to start an artistic challenge. I have seen several people doing it online and I had not yet understood the real meaning. Today I started to sketch a bit and I thought that’s what I want and need. A challenge and a new goal, to create something every day and to see if I can also add some income during this Christmas period. It is a good time to offer art as original gifts in times when people spend a lot of time inside their homes. If you are looking for original gifts for colleagues, friends, family, give art and you will help many artists to trust and continue creating.

Are you an artist? Join the challenge and use the hashtag #ArtChallengeGermany2020

Produce every day a sketch, a drawing or a small piece in the technique that you like to use to work on sketches. They don’t have to be finished, nor do you have to spend hours on them. Try to create a piece quickly, spend 1 or 2 hours maximum per day, take a photo and post it on your social networks with the following text:

1 sketch per day
Until 20 December 2020 Describe the piece you post every day Technique, measures and year Support artists and give art

He decidido empezar un reto o desafío artístico. He visto a varias personas que lo hacen online y aún no había entendido el significado real. Hoy me he puesto a bocetear un poco y he pensando que eso es lo que quiero y necesito. Un pequeño reto diario y el objetivo de ver si logro además sumar algunos ingresos en este período de navidad. Este es un buen momento para ofrecer trabajos que pueden servir como regalos originales en tiempos en que la gente pasa muy metida dentro de sus casas y quiere apoyar a la gente local.
Si estás buscando regalos originales para colegas, amigos, familiares, regala arte y ayudarás a muchos artistas a confiar y a seguir creando.
