Aug 13, 2020 3:07PM

POSITIONS Berlin is pleased to introduce the galleries participating in this year's POSITIONS Berlin Art Fair and paper positions.berlin from 10 - 13 September 2020 at Berlin-Tempelhof Airport. More than 130 exhibitors will be presenting more than 400 artistic positions, mainly contemporary and modern art, at both art fairs as well as at the special guest photo basel and the second edition of FASHION POSITIONS.

Numerous new additions

The many applications from galleries are reflected in the high artistic quality and the outstanding new participants. At paper positions Galerie Thomas Schulte will present current drawings by Spanish artist Juan Usléas well as new works by Berlin-based artist Iris Schomaker.

Iris Schomaker has used paper as the primary medium for her figurative paintings and landscapes over the last 20 years, whether for small or large-format paintings. With a precisely elaborated composition and a calculated process of formal reduction within their original figurative character, Schomaker's works go beyond the mere depiction of a particular reality or scene and explore the potential of painting to convey a pure idea, a conception or an experience.

At the POSITIONS Berlin Art Fair, Galerie Kleindienst shows, among others, works by the young artist Sebastian Speckmann, which draw the viewer into a dark, contradictory world. A cosmos is created in which concepts such as space and time remain in the dark, personal spaces of experience and memories interlock and connect with the - apparently - familiar external reality.

The Galerie Georg Nothelfer presents, among others, Richard Serra, one of the most important contemporary US-American sculptors. In a reduced, abstract formal language, Richard Serra addresses the references between object and space, volume and weight.
