For this year’s Berlin Art Week, Persons Projects is proud to present the duo exhibition Angular Dynamics focused on early experiments with photography and film. As both media were oriented more toward image making, a lens-based practice of capturing what was in front of the camera, these kinds of experimentations were ground-breaking for later developments. This exhibition focuses on how these two experimental artists, Grey Crawford and Józef Robakowski, both from different political and artistic cultures, used their chosen mediums as a means to create and challenge the accepted borders of what art was at the time.

David Hockney, once said, "drawing takes time, a line has time in it.” Inspired by this, Persons Projects is proud to present a group exhibition exploring the various approaches that shift the parameters of understanding what a line can be in the context of a drawing. These selected artists use a multitude of different materials as well as the passage of time to express their conceptual propositions in visualizing these linear representations.

Persons Projects proudly presents the group exhibition Framed. Activities for the Camera, focusing on the correlation between performance and photography.
Performance as an art form, beginning in the mid-20th century, has been used and developed by contemporary artists through their use of photography as their primary tool for recording their ideas and actions. Understandably, performance art needs photography to be able to last. Yet, photography plays an even more important role, not only as a means for the documentation but especially when the performance is staged solely for the camera. This exhibition presents a selection of artists who recorded their actions specifically for this reason.
