“Berlin Collective is pleased to present “On Site in 16 Cities”, a Group Exhibition consisting of International Artists new works produced specifically for this project.
Each artist was invited to find a location in their city that has a particular meaning to them, create a work in response to that location, photograph it in that exact place, and lastly print it in the format of 10’’x 10’’ to give a unified look to the works as if to have a voyeur experience of peering into the space. All of the works have titles and a one-sentence explanation by the artist of their piece. The individual projects are linked to 16 cities at the same time and connect the artists to their different ways of addressing their particular selection of locations.
This project was inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s film, “Night on Earth”, 1991. Night on Earth is a 1991 film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. It is a collection of five vignettes, taking place during the same night, concerning the temporary bond formed between taxi driver and passenger in five cities: Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome, and Helsinki.“”
