This art project is a collaboration of the Public Affairs Section of the United States Embassy in Berlin, the Deutsche Guggenheim and the Villa Aurora Forum Berlin. Both cultural institutions are based in Berlin and have a strong focus on transatlantic exchange for many years now.

The participating artists on the one side are former artist’s fellows of the Villa Aurora in Los Angeles and on the other side have exhibited at the Deutsche Guggenheim, some of them with commissioned works for the exhibition space in Berlin, respectively in the exhibition “Picturing America”.

At the heart of BEYOND THE FRAME lies the quest to transcend the horizon and open new perspectives. Grappling with venues, colors, moods and patterns on either side of the Atlantic alleged well-known facts rise from their set frame and allow the genesis of new ones.

We would like to thank all artists, galleries and private lenders.
