ILLUSTRATIVE BERLIN is the leading exhibition showcasing contemporary illustrative art. Held in Berlin from August 31st to September 16th, Illustrative showcased more than 200 works of established European illustrators. The exhibition focuses on so called free, uncommissioned, daring and ambitious works of the new generation in the illustrative field.
The artists have already been celebrated as pioneers of a very diverse emerging scene, successfully established yet consequently ignored by representatives of the “classic” art. Illustrators, being in-between art and design, challenge both, experimenting with digital techniques and using new technologies and media.
Their stories are told not only from one, but many various narrators’ points of view. As a result, we witness the birth and rise of the old new art of illustration – “ contemporary illustrative art”. The ILLUSTRATIVE BERLIN is a forum for contemporary applied graphical arts and a meeting point for collectors, designers, curators and art lovers – all in all an existing event for the international creative community.
Opening: August 31st 2007, 7 p.m.
Venue: Villa Elisabeth, Berlin
