The Berlin-based artist, whose spectrum ranges from graffiti and typography to collage, illustration and photography, combines this variety of disciplines in a virtuoso manner. The continous fusion of art and life is programmatic here in the graphic melting pot named Disturbanity.

The monograph retraces punk and graffiti and their mutual impact as significant inspirations which extends the artist’s personal story to an assemblage of alternative and attitude, of urban subculture and DIY.” (Annika Hirsekorn, Neurotitan Galerie)

Matthias Gephart’s monograph “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” is a journey through 25 years of visual creation. The show will present its content to the Berlin audience for the first time on a large-scale level. Self-financed via crowdfunding, released by publishing house Kettler at the Frankfurt book fair in 2015 and awarded by New Yorks art and design magazine Creative Quarterly, the limited edition book is available at Urban Spree and will be signed for you by the artist at the vernissage evening.

In a positive way: Overkill!” (Andreas Löhr, Fliehende Stürme)

WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY: A BERLIN GROUP SHOW

From 28.04 to 01.05, the Berlin-based art association THE ART UNION presents WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY, a group show featuring artworks by 58 Berlin based artists at the Urban Spree Galerie.

The title of the exhibition is a humorous reference to the official Gallery Weekend Berlin, which takes place at the same time. Urban contemporary art is one of Berlin’s defining characteristics, but will hardly be on display at the official Gallery Weekend whose official map doesn’t even cover the area where Urban Spree is located, albeit quite central. THE ART UNION aims to bridge this gap by presenting diverse artistic perspectives following the idea of ONE CITY – ONE WEEKEND – ONE GALLERY – 58 ARTISTS.

The exhibition WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY is thematically created along the lines of different subgenres and styles of this young genre of art in a non-representative way. The work of all the artists presented in this group show can be found in public spaces, as well as in galleries. Other binding elements are their global citizenship and their generational experience. While all the artists shown at WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY. are Berlin-based, not all of them are German. Some artists originate from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, Japan and Canada, while others come from the Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary, the USA and the UK. Apart from a few exceptions, all were born after 1980. The exhibition aims to display the richness of urban contemporary art in Berlin. Female artists will not be marginalized, but are in fact a vital part of the group show WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY.

About THE ART UNION

The non-profit association THE ART UNION is run by key players in the fields of art and culture with expertise in the communication of art, art funding and visual communication. Daily working practice has exemplified a gap between artists, their audience and the art market, which is difficult to overcome. THE ART UNION intends to build a bridge between these aspects and create formats to professionalize artists and initiate discourses within the scenes. The organization of exhibitions and participation in festivals are as much a vital part of the concept as are artist residencies, funding and exchange programmes.

THE ART UNION was founded in 2015 and will receive an entry in the National Register of Associations in the first half of 2016.

Rare Shots on Planet X

Our friend & Urban Spree homie Matthias Gephart is launching a crowdfunding campaign about his book project “Rare Shots on Planet X”.

“Rare Shots on Planet X” is Matthias’ first monograph. Due for publication at the end of summer by renowned Dortmund-based art press “Verlag Kettler“, RSPX is an artist’s book engineered by the artist himself, with prime materials retracing the profuse and diverse career of the artist in illustration, typography & lettering, graffiti, collage, screen prints, and photography, up to this point in time.

Matthias is launching a crowd funding campaign to make this publication happening.

Urban Spree is officially supporting the book project and we recommend our readers to pre-order the book and therefore support this great publishing project.

Details on the funding project here on the startnext.de website.
