New gallery in Berlin!

On April 11th 2008 Pascal Johanssen and Katja Kleiss, the two initiators of the artfestival, are opening a new exhibition space in Berlin-Mitte. Convinced that the global uniformity of the marketable products and trends needs an answer from exceptional designer-artist-personalities, Johanssen and Kleiss follow the concept of a gallery, in which playfully, like in a art- and wonderchamber of the baroque, illustrations next to extraordinary gold- and silverjewellery besides glass art or seldom lamp unicums can be found.

The image-sound of our time

Pascal Johanssen is founder and curator of the berlin exposition Illustrative, which is displaying an international selection of the best young illustrator´s work. The illustrative art, once an art „forgotten“, is reinventing itself and presently in great demand: in the design and art scene as well as in commercialising an attitude to life. Pascal Johanssen, curator, talks about tendencies and self-conception of the genre „illustration“ in tension to the fine arts.
