The basic idea of SWEAT SHOP is to extrapolate the mutuality of art and money, while commenting on the means of capitalist production in a globalized world, and reflecting on the artistic traditions in the means and ends of production in the eastern and the western philosophy.
For four days during the Berlin Gallery Weekend, when the art world comes to the German capital, a group of contemporary artists of different stylistic backgrounds will work in Berlin-Kreuzberg's free art space SCHAU FENSTER under “sweat shop conditions”. During their six hour shift, all the artist is given is a chair, a tripod, and paint. Each one of them inhabiting the 5 x 4 meter space between the four columns that structure the space.
