Die ATM Gallery Berlin feiert ihre Wieder-Auferstehung im neuen Künstlerkiez "Schönekreuz" mit einer ungewohnten Präsentation energiegeladener Werke aus dem Spannungsfeld zwischen zeitgenössischer Fotografie, Grafik, Malerei, Installation und urbaner Kunst auf über 220 qm Ausstellungsfläche auf 2 Etagen.
2007 in der Brunnenstrasse gegründet setzt ATM auf die Ausdruckstärke der künstlerischen Bildsprache aus dem öffentlichen Raum und verschafft sich in den vergangenen 3 Jahren internationale Anerkennung als Mediator einer avantgardistischen Alternative zur Einheitlichkeit des Berliner Kunstmarktes.
2010 zieht sich ATM aus dem Mainstream der Berliner Mitte zurück um sich kongruent zum Kunstherbst 2011 mit neuer Energie, neuem Standort und neuer Kunst den weitreichenden Veränderungen der Kunstlandschaft Berlins zu stellen.
In der Eröffnungsausstellung am 10. September 2011 offenbart ATM die Verbindung zwischen zeitgenössischer und urbaner Kunst und zeigt ab 19 Uhr in der Eylauerstr.13 neue Arbeiten internationaler Künstler wie ELIOT (Wien), EMESS (Berlin), Leon Reid IV (New York), JUST (Berlin), SpY (Madrid) und STINK! (London).

There is no doubt that street art has become part of our everyday lives. Invasive, poetic, destructive, provocative, illegal, political, abstract or beautiful, street art has gradually infiltrated urban areas around the globe. It continues to challenge the idea of ownership of the public space and has given itself the right to use it for expression alongside the monopoly held by corporate entities for advertising. In the past decade, street artists have gained respect from communities all over the world and have been exhibited in the most prestigious museums – with or without invitation.
Emess’ work is most often motivated by political questions. Confronting the viewer with issues that would rather be swept under the rug, for which there are perhaps no clear answers or solutions but that need to be addressed. The use of humor and his sense of aesthetics catch the viewer off guard for a moment allowing attention to be drawn to the subject. Emess sees no difference between the street or the gallery space, his work is designed to reach an audience and adapts itself to the situation. His range of media goes from sculptural objects or large scale murals to woodcuts and delicate prints. - Alvaro Campo
Emess Solo Show - "the good, the bad and the anti"

City Music is a new series of accoustic works in public space by Emess. Therefore Emess built and installed several wind driven sound installations at different public places in Berlin and documented this in a movie. Self-suffizient from any other energy his installations use the power of the wind and the aerodynamic conditions of the city only. The idea of the project is to create a kind of soundtrack for selected spots. Emess placed a complex mechanism into a series of bird houses and connects a wind wheel with small barrel organs. These wooden houses are shelter, camouflage and a body for resonance of the music organ at the same time. So for example you are able to listen to "Hava Nagila" at the Jewish Museum, to "Doktor Shiwago" inbetween the russian architecture of Frankfurter Allee or to the song "Berliner Luft" at the stinky corner of Kottbusser Tor in Kreuzberg and so on. 7 of these City Music boxes had been outside for the last 3 months in different places in Berlin.
Inside the "ECKSTÜCK" on 150 squaremeters of the ceiling you will discover a unique street art version of michelangelos legendary fresco, the "Sick-Teen´s Chapel" - while on the outside classical riot-scenes draw an authentic image of Kreuzberg.
So next to a incredibly painted restaurant please expect a chapel, a gallery, a big live-music-cellar and a place for street art in kreuzberg - cause additionally we have over 50 artworks on display and for sale by participating artists like M:M, Tim Robot, Base 23, Eliot, 1010, Czarnobyl, Lake, Dave the Chimp, Noel, Bimer, Emess, Herr von Bias, Pabo, Sam Reaktor, Prost, Gogoplata, MTO, Inka, Pisa73 and Just.
