Am Flutgraben

2 januari 2023

On Saturday, January 7, 2023, the exhibition AM FLUTGRABEN will open in Teekengenootchap Pictura Dordrecht at 5 p.m. Between 2003 and 2011, the former CBK Dordrecht facilitated an artist-in-residence for Dordrecht artists in Berlin by providing living space and a studio in the Kunstfabrik am Flutgraben. This way they could live and work there for 3 to 6 months. In ‘am Flutgraben’, a number of the artists selected at the time show work from their Berlin time or recent work that has a connection with that working period. The duo exhibition BERLIN, A 10-YEAR Itch, which is taking place simultaneously, features work by 11 artists who once went to Berlin, because it ‘happened’ there and you had to be there. Both exhibitions are on view until February 12.
