G.A.S-station Berlin since 2007 is directed by Elisa Asenbaum and Thomas Maximilian Stuck.

The concept of G.A.S-station, Tankstelle für Kunst und Impuls, Berlin is a research project on the development and exploitation of artistic and scientific aspects and also a platform to develop and test new forms of art presentation, mediation and publication. The projects we initiate annually are designed on specific topics as well as cross-divisional. We're glad about the lovely interest to our projects and events and hoping to initiate with our art project intentions futher more discussions also beyond art. 2021 we had our attention on the topic art is dead.

Hardly anything has been declared dead so often and yet proven itself so durable as art. Critics, the market and even the artists themselves have all proclaimed the death of art. Art movements break with tradition and celebrate forms of resurrection again and again. On the one hand, our present day demonstrates a colourful side by side of positions and art forms that often contradict each other. On the other hand, the Corona pandemic has turned all supposedly familiar artistic presentation aspects and forms - including those related to production, distribution, and perception - upside down. We are stuck in a global lockdown, art venues are being closed down, and almost all over the world art in all its diversity is standing still. Art is shifting into the virtual space, and with it the ambience of physical surroundings is lost. A shared atmosphere has become an individual home sphere. We are in the middle of restructuring processes whose future significance cannot be estimated yet. The wave spills over into the virtual. Will there be a flashback, or are shared cultural moments passé?

Furthermore, the topic of our project-call can also be seen as part of a recurring tradition. The artists' movement Dada, launched in Zurich, already over a century ago now announced the death of traditional art in Berlin with its provocative manifesto.
But which art is dead? Can art even die? Or is only the emphasis shifting and something becomes systemically relevant because it is dead? And who or what determines what survives?

Further more information about our exhibitions and projects you may find here and are coming continuousely.
