Art collection “Am schwarzen Grund”

For you to download

How do we perceive the world, both the visible and invisible, around us? From art, we can learn how human sensitivities historically change, as well as which aspects of perception remain unaltered.

 

Art, in all its forms and possibilities, has long been a special passion of eye square. From Greek antiquity to the digital revolution, eye square’s art collection makes daring references to all, past, present, and to the unknown future.

 

Our desire to reconcile past and present finds expression in the ‘double location’ of our art collection: it is not only exhibited in our offices on the banks of the Spree River in Berlin but also in a virtual museum modeled on the time-honored Petersburg Kunstkammer.

 

eye square invites you to learn more about the collection and movement “am schwarzen Grund” with an explanation by art historian Katharina Weinstock.
