[insert title] invites the four artists Helena Hladilová, Anouk Kruithof, Britta Lumer and Zorka Wollny inside the main building of Humboldt University to create new works using different techniques and approaches. During the working period, regular open studio sessions and artist workshops give visitors the opportunity to experience the creative process. Afterwards, the outcome of the artistic work will be presented without changing the context of its creation, leaving the traces of the creative practices intact. The project [insert title] is a call for participation that aims to encourage visitors to come up with their own exhibition title, give tours and write catalogue texts.

Kleine Humboldt Galerie brings visitors, the artists and the curatorial team together to shape the exhibition through a dialogue. The team of Kleine Humboldt Galerie, consisting of students from various academic backgrounds, sees itself as a mediator and participant. It aims to make contemporary art and the process of curating accessible to everyone interested and to turn the university into a space where people with different perspectives and backgrounds can interact and learn from one another.” (Excerpt from the press release by courtesy of Kleine Humboldt Galerie)

As a student initiative, Kleine Humboldt Galerie organizes annual contemporary art exhibitions in the main building of Humboldt University. The initiative was originally founded in 1978, but has existed in its current form since 2009. The aim of Kleine Humboldt Galerie is to rethink curatorial practice and to give artists, visitors and curators an opportunity to interact with each other as equals and discuss their different approaches to the artworks.
