AUTOCENTER was founded in 2001 as an exhibition space by the artists Maik
Schierloh and Joep van Liefland in a former auto body shop. It became an important
non-for-profit space for art that operates outside the hierarchies of the art market and
has been presenting international artists, at their early stages before they became
part of written art history. On 333 sqm of exhibition grounds in Berlin’s district of
Friedrichshain, AUTOCENTER presents its ideas and visions to an advanced arts
audience of artists, curators, critics, collectors as well as architects, photographers
More than 30 of Berlins acclaimed artists are donating artworks in support of
AUTOCENTER on the occasion of its 10th anniversary in a generous gesture of
solidarity with Berlin as a center for artistic production. The auction benefits
AUTOCENTER as one of the most important non-for-profits of the city and helps
secure its future.
The preview the artworks will be presented at AUTOCENTER from September
3rd -7th. The auction will be held on September 8th, 2011 at 7pm.
