Four rooms, 500 m2 exhibition space, one gallery: In February 2012, CAMERA WORK opened the CWC GALLERY, a second gallery in a Berlin building that is steeped in history: the Ehemalige Jüdische Mädchenschule Berlin (former Jewish girls’ school). The construction by architect Alexander Beer was finished in 1928, its facade combining features of late expressionism and New Objectivity. CWC GALLERY, in keeping with the name CAMERA WORK CONTEMPORARY, shows contemporary positions in photography, painting and sculpture in comprehensive retrospectives, conceptual group exhibitions or cooperations with private collectors and art institutions.
The elegance and purism visible on the outside of the building are mirrored in the four spacious, well-lit rooms on the first floor as well as in the generous hallways of the CWC GALLERY. A reduced, stylish design, a sophisticated arrangement and a clear language of form produce a unique atmosphere, in which the ample spaces take full effect in allowing the visitor to enjoy an exceptional experience of reception.
With the gallery CAMERA WORK in Berlin-Charlottenburg and the CWC GALLERY in the heart of the gallery quarter of Berlin-Mitte, which is famous in the international art world, CAMERA WORK takes advantage of these excellent premises to present icons of the history of photography, masterworks and contemporary photography and art in exclusive, individual spaces.
