A new open arts space in Berlin, features exhibitions, film showings, performances.
MMX open art venue is an artist run, non-profit space that will exist for one year in Berlin’s commercial gallery street Linienstraße in Mitte. The project began in January 2010 and will close on December 31, 2010 by welcoming in the New Year. Started by four friends: Berlin based photographer Jonathan Gröger, artist Rebecca Loyche from New York, artist Daniel Wilson from Canada, Philip Eggereglüß from Germany and later joining the team American Jason Burgess. MMX occupies the ground floor and surrounding garden area of one of the last untouched, unrenovated buildings left on Linienstraße. The art space transformed out of a squatted dilapidated building into one of Berlin’s most popular alternative art venues overnight. With a concentration on presenting talented but underexposed art throughout the +1000sqm that MMX occupies with it’s several gallery rooms, video screening room, a music venue space, a back courtyard, and one of the only front gardens in the district. MMX strives to bring people and art together by presenting exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, musical and dance performances, and unique weekly events. The last Show opens on October 29 and runs until December 3, 2010.
