In Berlin, supported the action to burn pictures automatic translate
Nine European artists burned their work in Berlin in protest against the threat of independent art throughout Europe. Reducing public spending and increasing the influence of large economic groups, in their opinion, do not promise free art anything good.
The paintings were burnt at the Berlin House of Art Tacheles, which since 1989 exhibited about 100 artists working in different disciplines and cultural traditions. The burning of works should pay attention to the fragile situation of two independent houses of art - the Museum of Modern Art in Naples is threatened with closure due to the reduction of state subsidies, while the Tacheles in Berlin private investors who bought its building several years ago still have not managed to knock out creative personalities from there, which occupy the building.
«The threat of a network of investors, banks, lawyers and politicians who are not interested in pure art, but live only to make money, is hanging over us. So we destroyed our art before the market does it, «said EFE Tacheles spokeswoman Linda Cerna. «Tacheles as a place to protect the production and presentation of contemporary art should be an independent and non-profit, public place where artists will move the art forward, will be people-oriented, not the market,» adds Chern.
«We want the city to buy this place and keep it as a place of modern art in Berlin, and not build another shopping center,» explains Barbara Fragogna, artist and curator of Tacheles.
