»Dreams of Art Spaces Collected« is a project that investigates visions and developments in exhibiting and mediating contemporary fine arts starting from Europe and China. The aim is to gather various perspectives of artists living and working in these regions. The primary focus is not on museums, but rather on project spaces, initiatives run by artists and art associations. At the moment the research is based on extensive interviews with approximately 50 artists, as well as with art curators and theorists.
In an exhibition (8 to 15 September 2007, Projektraum Deutscher Künstlerbund, Berlin) video, photographic and textual presentations of the artists' standpoints, evaluations and ideas were shown. In a workshop (15 September 2007), project members discussed divers models and developed a catalogue of ideas. The research is to be continued, a DVD and internet documentation is being planned.
