General Public is an independent project space run by a group of cultural workers (visual artists, curators, among others) based in Berlin. General Public was founded in Fall 2005 and since produced a number of exhibitions, artist presentations, discussions, film screenings, and performances. Additional to its own program General Public occasionally serves as a host for related external activities and projects.
General Public aims to install and uphold a collaborative, process-related, informal platform for open thought, information exchange, spatial experiments, transdisciplinary approach and the reflection on contemporary visual and auditive culture. Allthough operating within an international network, General Public's activities are always informed by and related to its local context and situation. Far from eyeing out individuals and the market's usual taxations, direct involvement in contemporary creation and discourse on the level of production – paradoxically – ensures critical distance to take positions within what is going on arround us culturally and socially.
Currently the activities of General Public are structured into three distinct series – DISK Sessions, LOGE and Orginalfassung (Original Version) – and an irregular exhibition program.
