The essay "Building Dwelling Thinking-Bauen Wohnen Denken" written in 1951 by the German philosopher Martin Heidegger, is the springboard from which this new exhibition has been developed, considered, and framed. The exhibited works may or may not have a direct or obvious reference to this essay - this timeless text was provided as an inspiration to the artists to engage their works within our living spaces. Art challenges us to think. An artist´s opinions, reactions, and his or her world is uniquely expressed in artworks, often with relevance to society and politics. smartloft apartments&art believes that bringing art from the gallery into a private space allows a more intimate conversation between the work and the observer. Living with an artwork generates a different type of contemplation and introspection than the experience permitted at a gallery or museum. Not only are we intent in providing a resonant experience to our guests, but we are also interested in presenting artists the opportunity to show in our carefully designed apartments, and/or to create site specific work which then only belongs to this particular space and time. Furthermore, Berlin boast more than 6000 artists many of whom are international. These artists consider the theme of Building Dwelling Thinking-Bauen Wohnen Denken in Berlin and one's relationship the space in which is changing through building, dwellling and thinking.
