montanaberlin is purpose, act and space.

In our work, we focus energy on the interface between nature and the space of human life. We invent a new reality, and organise it. Reality here spans from
sharp observation, surreal invention and construction to the interpenetration of inside and outside world. We are unary nomads who connect with each other.
Committed to a knowledge of reality as a diversity of aspects, the artists' works allow for such diversity.

We want discourses to be prompted by the immediate presence of art. We do not do research. We express all matters straight.

"...this form of illusion is deliberate: it allows the creation of mental space by the destabilisation of perception" (Baudrillard)

Proceeding from aspects of form and content of our own artistic work, montanaberlin welcomed particular positions of artists, galleries and other institutions. In the period between oct 2006 and dec 2008 montanaberlin organised exhibitions in his offspace in the Brunnenstrasse Berlin-Mitte. We have shown about 60 artists from Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Great Britain, Spain, Czechoslovakia and the United States. Beeing invited as an artist project, montanaberlin started to exhibit in national and internationl institutions since 2008.
