alpha nova & galerie futura is a Berlin-based art space for exhibitions and cultural events with a decidedly emancipatory and feminist perspective. The project was founded in 1986. It focuses on collaborations with women* artists. alpha nova & galerie futura creates a space for linking political intervention and artistic practice in order to develop critical standpoints for the artistic and academic communities, as well as for society at large. Every year, up to five exhibitions with visual arts of all genres are realized in cooperation with the participating artists and other partners. Events like film screenings, performances, concerts, readings, lectures, talks and discussions as well as thematic workshops and round-table discussions for women* cultural producers complement the program. We regularly work and collaborate with various local, national and international partner institutions and individuals. alpha nova & galerie futura offers coaching and support in conceptional work and networking for women* in artistic fields. Focus: Feminisms, postcolonialism, intersectionality, conceptual and investigative approaches, collaborative work, art as knowledge production, research as artistic format.
