A pop-up art gallery that, like its homeless artists, lacks shelter and makes their world visible. Under bridges, on the street. 30 years street magazine Hinz&Kunzt, 30 life stories, 30 art pieces.
We all feel the consequences of the current crises – especially the poorest of the poor: the homeless. But for some, bad times are actually good times. A paradoxically record-breaking art market made us turn homeless people into artists to help them profit from art. Hinz&Kunzt sellers became Hinz&Kunzt artists. And their stories turned into real art. Our homeless artists shared their life stories over hour-long conversations. Then, with AI’s support and the Hamburg Kunsthalle’s expertise, they created intimate and moving art out of them. We exhibited the resulting art pieces at 13 locations under bridges, at subway stations and on the streets – resulting in a striking new way to raise awareness. An entirely new kind of gallery. A pop-up gallery that, like its homeless artists, lacks shelter and makes their world visible.
