massive group exposure

There are four groupexhibitions of fantastic-visionary artists, running at the same time,  where i  have attendet the festive  openings and had the enjoyable opportunitiy to hang out with artist-friends and to make new ones. A spirit of a common cause is present,   which gathers forces to break through into a larger public not only consisting of other artists and each artists personal entourage. It is the exposure to the "larger public"which will  generate new collectors and sales. A shift from the "starving artists syndrome" to a position of "creating out of abundance" will certainly help to multiply  the visibility of an art that deserves to be called art.

The shows are curated by artists who participate in them  and not by highranking curators affiliated with museums , art fairs,  galleries and art-halls. Also the showlocations are initiated independently from the socalled art world . Not only is there is an incredible massive display of contemporarty art of the other kind in the virtual showcases of social networks and platforms,  now there is also a vital force   that claims space in social and cultural reality.

This is good news : we are becoming a new art world,  a parallel universe of contemporary art.

Curators and organisers : Prof. Philip Jacobson Rubinov, Olga Spiegel, Miguel Tio and France Garrido, Reinhard Schmid, Hanno Karlhuber. Thank you for all your tedious work you put into making these shows possible!
