Supermarket news

Back in Berlin

Supermarket is on the go! We are back in Berlin, where it all started 7 years ago, with AIM Network's brand new publication on connecting artist-run spaces around Europe. Join us tomorrow for the official book launch at Top Schillerpalais for a brief presentation and lots of Berlin beer and some wine! 

The AIM Network

is a publication about the AIM Network, a diverse network of European artists’ initiatives and their exchange of knowledge and experiences over a period of six years. The members got to know each other at Supermarket, an international art fair for artist-run spaces held annually in Stockholm, and continued meeting in different cities in and out of Europe to discuss key issues of self-organised exhibition spaces. They also engaged in an idea of developing an online Artist-Run Map that would gather artist-run initiatives to enhance their visibility and provide space for artistic exchange. There can be found many examples of attempts to create a similar map, but they have all failed, being either incomplete or becoming fast outdated.

AIM have discussed the problematics surrounding this project, identified the main obstacles and developed a number of conceivable solutions, but as of now have not gathered the resources to perfect and launch a functioning Artist-Run Map. Hopefully, the groundwork done by AIM can be used by anyone seeking to realise a similar resource, and contribute to formation of creative encounters where ideas and knowledge are exchanged.

In search of a new venue..

What has our project team been secretly up to?! You might rather not want to know... In search of the next year's venue we somehow ventured into the meat-production business. Pools of blood, juicy flesh, vegetarians weeping, crimson-stained white coats and beard covers; all this endured for our love of art!
Keep your eyes open for Supermaret 2018 updates coming very soon!

The collected material constitute a growing archive published on the web.
