    Talk about Art

    The ‘Enter into Art’ exhibitions have captivating art installations in each exhibition space, with gallery evenings. In addition, exhibition visitors receive a guide to meditation and reflecting on art.

    With the important motto, "Talk about art", we help you to build contacts and present your work in Germany. Our events are full of art enjoyment, relaxation and insightful talks, which capture the attention of our participants. As such, we attract the right type of people.

    We make the most of your public appearances by talking about your pictures in a language that anyone can understand. Thus, we do not keep your art a mystery - we give the audience some idea of what it offers them. With no art jargon, we incorporate them into your work. Please see the menu point "REWARDS".

          Our focus is on the international arts funding of miniprint and mixed media

          The call is exclusively addressed to foreign artists! The idea behind the ‘Enter into Art’ concept is to consciously draw attention to the artwork. The events will take place annually.

          Through our artistic exhibitions and presentation concepts, we examine the captivating and relaxing viewing of a smaller work of art. The exhibition visitors immerse themselves in the international landscape and enjoy the individual art images. They can discover and enjoy very specific colors, shapes, textures, lines and content. The magic of our installations is in the combination of colors and art, poetry, music and sound, as well as the intercultural fascination.
