What was it?

Last month the City Museum of Munich, Germany, held an exhibition that featured artists from Europe, Asia, and Australia. They were connected by their confident artistic position, focusing on their artistic statement rather than creating easily accessible and understandable works.

Galeria Autonomica

The curators Christian Minke and Christoph Pankowski believe that now it’s more important than ever to promote those artists and artworks free from commercialized interest and help them express their subversive views without aesthetic compromises.

The exhibition Galeria Autonomica was also the premiere of Live at the Museum, a Public Delivery project that started in 2011. Since then, 32 films in 12 countries on four continents have been produced.
