alpha nova-kulturwerkstatt & galerie futura is a Berlin-based art space for exhibitions and cultural events with an explicit gender-critical perspective. The project was founded in 1986.
It focuses on collaborations with women* artists. Based on a feminist self-concept, we want to create a space which combines political intervention and artistic practices to develop critical perspectives for the artistic and academic communities, as well as for society at large. The galerie futura presents thematic exhibitions with installations, net-art, audiovisual arts and fine arts. Events like film screenings, performances, concerts, readings and discussions happen at the alpha nova-kulturwerkstatt. Thematic workshop series and round-table discussions for cultural producers are also organized there. We also offer coaching and support in conceptional work and networking for women from artistic fields. alpha nova-kulturwerkstatt & galerie futura works with various partner institutions and individuals on local, interregional, and international temporary projects.
Foci: feminisms, postcolonialism, conceptual and investigative approaches, collaborative working modes, art as production of knowledge, research as an artistic format
