Statement of the Group Global 3000
We work as a group Global Global 3000 since 2012 for art and sustainability.
In our artistic discourse we focus on ecological topics combined with social and / or economic issues. Our works are part of a new art language that is inherent in sustainability. GG3 thus promotes sustainability as a socially relevant and world-changing process. Art is required in its mediating role when it comes to making the invisible visible.
We operate the nonprofit gallery “Group Global 3000” in Berlin-Kreuzberg. It is located where the former German Wall ran. On the road and the site the traces are still visible.
In community with international artists we interact with the media: Object art, installation, drawing, photography, video, land art, painting and others. work, we show exhibitions and actions. Our events are free of charge. As a rule, we publish the exhibition topics in public and judge the entries submitted. When selecting applicants and their works, we pay close attention to the subject of the advertised topic. We communicate in English and German.
Our topic includes a variety of sustainability, as we do not know and can not determine the future. We support the “Sustainable Development Goals“. Sustainability is defined in german so that future generations should have the same opportunities for a fulfilling life as we do. At the same time, the opportunities for all people on earth must be distributed more fairly. Sustainable development combines economic progress with social justice and the protection of the natural environment. With art, we want to give impulses to the public and make our contribution. We offer a cultural space of thought for the big and small political processes of sustainability and non-sustainability. We do not raise the moral finger, we seek the encounter, the touch and the discourse.
“We will, .., can not avoid it, if we really want to claim sustainability as a socially relevant theme that is changing the world, and to do it with the means of art.” (Adrienne Goehler: Arte.TV) Culture – Taste It , whatever it is! “, 16. 9.2015)
The subjects of the exhibitions are taken from the current social, philosophical and ecological discussions. We work artistically e.g. with:
- the pace of society and the individual and their effects on nature
- our dealings with external nature, energy and substances
- our dealings with the inner nature, our body
- our economies against the waste and the exploitation of man and nature
- global social, economic and environmental development and our response to it
- the loss and gain of home and its effects on nature or its changes
- the tension between nature and culture
- own practice and not theory
- the research of artistic, inventive and scientific questions in the sense of sustainability
Our logo expresses the wasteful handling of the world. We live and work as if we have a second world.
Our name, Group Global 3000, shows that people act locally, globally, and for the future. We work for the “best of both worlds”.
We value discourse, thematic depth and encounter. Our exhibitions include four events: Vernissage, artist talk, lecture and Finissage. We win the referents from science, NGOs, journalism and business.
