MACHT KUNST in the Alte Münze
More than 6.000 visitors flock to the 24-hour exhibition

On Gallery Weekend, the second part of the MACHT KUNST (Make Art) action was a real crowd puller. More than 6,000 art enthusiasts streamed to the 24-hour exhibition in the Alte Münze in Berlin-Mitte, where Deutsche Bank presented around 1,800 artworks by the same number of artists. The audience could rate all of the works on exhibit. Radoslava Markova, a Berlin resident from Bulgaria, received the most votes. The 34-year-old painter won a one-year studio grant endowed with 500 euros a month.

An expert jury consisting of the curators Sophie von Olfers and René Block and Friedhelm Hütte, head of Deutsche Bank’s art department, selected three additional prizewinners: Lena Ader (25), Nicolas Fontaine (28), and Annina Lingens (29). All three have the opportunity to present their work in two-week solo exhibitions in the studio of the KunstHalle on Unter den Linden.

“We’re overjoyed about the success of the MACHT KUNST exhibition and would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of the artists and visitors to the two exhibitions!” said Friedhelm Hütte. “The action has shown us how much artistic potential is slumbering in the capital. With such a tremendous response, we will definitely think about how we can continue this initiative.”

At the beginning of April, Deutsche Bank had called on all artistically inclined people to bring a work to the new Deutsche Bank KunstHalle under the slogan MACHT KUNS. The original plan was to only accept as many works as would fit in the hall and to present them on April 8 and 9. But due to the massive interest – a one-kilometer line formed outside of the KunstHalle – Deutsche Bank decided spontaneously to accept all of the works submitted and to show them in two exhibitions. Of the 2,135 works submitted within the framework of the MACHT KUNST action, 345 were shown in the first part of the exhibition and 1,790 last weekend.
