Artist collective Human IEU presents FLUID 



Following a successful run at the Espacio Gallery in east London, UK-based arts collective Human IEU is bringing its latest group show, FLUID, to The Ballery in Berlin. 

The show brings together seven artists working in diverse media. The work they’ve created in response to the theme challenges, provokes and dynamically engages the viewer in a collection that incorporates drawing, painting, video, sculpture, photography and performance. 

Each artist’s take on the FLUID theme is unique - to some it conjures work exploring sexuality and desire, to others it suggests a process and a medium in which to work. Remembering that the human body is 60% water, we’re asking the viewer to think about the importance of fluid to the human experience. 

Jonathan Armour, Brian Dennis, Brother Kwan, Graeme Messer, Georg Meyer-Wiel, Joao Trindade, Francisco Gomez De Villaboa. 



“Following our presentation of ‘Fluid’ in London, we are happy to be bringing the show to Berlin for Folsom Europe. 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in N.Y.C., so there is no better time than this year (and no better place than Folsom Europe) to be seen for ourselves - our beautiful, fluid, sometimes subversive selves.” 


20 September - 08 October 2019

To celebrate 5 years of The Ballery, we are putting up three pop-up art  exhibitions featuring over 60 Berlin based artists. The first one starts  on September 20th.

Each artist has been invited to present one work or a small series as an introduction to their vision or artistic practice. There is no theme to this exhibition and all art mediums are presented.

Many artists are showing their work at The Ballery for the first time.

Below you will find three links to an event page of each opening.  Please share :-)

November 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berliner Mauer, the wall that divided Germany’s capital city for around 28 years. To coincide this occassion The Ballery presents a photography exhibition featuring Berlin artist Andreas Fux. 

Andreas Fux was born in 1964 in East Berlin. He grew up as a citizen of the GDR and trained as an electrician. In the early 80's Andreas self trained himself as photographer and soon after contributed images of the East German punk and youth scene for cultural magazines such as DAS Magazin and DEFA film productions. 

On 9th November 1989, the night the Berlin wall opened, Andreas walked into West Berlin as a witness, a new world to discover. In this exhibition The Ballery presents works that surround this period as well as early unseen personal works. 

Im November 2019 jährt sich zum 30. Mal der Fall der Berliner Mauer, die die deutsche Hauptstadt rund 28 Jahre lang trennte. Anlässlich dieses Jubiläums zeigt The Ballery eine Fotoausstellung des Berliner Künstlers Andreas Fux. 

Andreas Fux wurde 1964 in Ostberlin geboren. Er ist als DDR-Bürger aufgewachsen und ausgebildeter Elektriker. In den frühen 80er-Jahren bildete sich Andreas selbst zum Fotografen aus und veröffentlichte bald darauf Bilder der ostdeutschen Punk- und Jugendszene in Kulturmagazinen wie dem DAS Magazin und DEFA-Filmproduktionen. 

Am 9. November 1989, der Nacht des Mauerfalls, betrat Andreas West-Berlin als Zeuge und tauchte damit in eine neue Welt ein, die es zu entdecken galt. In der Ausstellung präsentiert The Ballery Werke aus dieser Zeit sowie frühe persönliche Arbeiten, die noch nie öffentlich ausgestellt wurden.
