The GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst was founded in Bremen in 1980. On February 8, 1981 it opened its program with the exhibition of the Spanish artist group “Equipo Crónica”. On the occasion of its 40th anniversary as an art association, the GAK dedicates itself to a professional reappraisal of its exhibition and institutional history. Texts and images from past exhibitions and events, from annual editions and catalogues, will be recorded, digitalised and made available as a publicly accessible and “living” online archive by the GAK team.
For the anniversary year, the Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst will also receive an additional, temporary project space, “GAK Projekte”. This is located in the same building, below its current entrance. In addition to its current program, it will present works and projects by young artists.
We are happy to keep you informed about further events in the anniversary year here and also by newsletter.
Further events will follow.
