Kunstverein Ost – KVOST for short – is a space located in the heart of Berlin’s district of Mitte, next to the former wall, in a significative historical location where East and West meet. The aim of the institution, in fact, is to promote artists who come from Eastern Europe or whose life and work are shaped by the former Eastern bloc, through a programme of stipends and artistic residencies.
KVOST invites selected artists to explore the multifaceted nature of a place and its surroundings or delve into other aspects of the east, presenting the resulting works in solo exhibitions. This programme is complemented by group shows, cultural tours and talks, which offer further chances of discussion of the aesthetic, political and personal narratives that define Eastern Europe beyond the usual clichés and prejudices.
