The exhibition project A 37 90 89 – The Invention of the Neo-Avant-Garde at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein is dedicated to the genesis of art practices critical of institutions since the 1960s based on the example of the project space A 37 90 89, founded in Antwerp in 1969. A 37 90 89 had a decisive influence on the development of project spaces worldwide, it quintessentially influenced subsequent models of alternative art spaces, producer galleries and participatory initiatives. Initiated by a progressive group of collectors, gallery owners as well as art mediators and supervised by Kasper König, the project space A 37 90 89 developed a diverse curatorial practice that tested alternative models of art production and art mediation beyond the institutions.
