Sandvad Mengers Promised Land Berlin art Cecilia de Jong

Promised Land


Identity, belonging, and the desire to escape to a new world. 

Berlin provides a utopian dream, a place in which to enrich existence, a refuge for the nomad artist and non-conformist ideals. The Berlin Office is an empty space born within this seemingly utopian paradise. The Berlin Office is a non-place. Exclusively developed for artists. This nothing space in which the artist resides provides a think tank; a neutral ground in which to impregnate with thoughts, ideas, and feelings. 

Organized by Victoria Lucas and Line Sandvad Mengers.
