With the two galleries in the Spinnerei in Leipzig and Auguststraße 26 in Berlin, EIGEN + ART Lab is the third gallery which Galerie EIGEN + ART has been opened in March 2012 in the building of the former Jewish Girls School in Berlin-Mitte. The space of over 230 sqm divided on two former classrooms and a corridor is used to show exhibitions with artists that don't live in Berlin.
The idea of EIGEN + ART Lab is to show new positions in Germany or present them in a new context. For Galerie EIGEN + ART, the space gives a possibility to work with artists that are not part of the gallery's program also over a long period of time.
The place, the former Jewish Girls School is not only interesting as a building, but will now become a very important new address for arts in Berlin Mitte due to its location close to the KunstWerke, ME collectors room, C/O Berlin as well as Museum Island, Hoffmann Collection and Boros Collection, all in walking distance.
For Galerie EIGEN + ART which was opened in 1992 a couple of steps away on the same street, the re-opening of the building is also a return to its origins in the Berlin-Mitte art scene that started to spread from Auguststraße over the whole city of Berlin at that time.
