art.is! - online since september 01, 2016.
The idea of KUNST.IST! was founded by Leipzig artists who want to reach the widest possible audience by representing their artworks from varied styles on the joined platform. KUNST.IST! offers original artwork and limited edtions in small sizes with collector´s characteristics of artists wich could not be more different in their artistic and technical expression. Every visitor of the website or from common events and exhibitions should be able to find "his" work of art. With the online platform, the project has received a publicly effective reach.
At KUNST.IST! the quality and significance of the artwork is at the forefront, not the education or the degree of recognition of an artist. The selection of work also does not place any claim on artistic perfection. Important ist that it is not a single work of an artist, but a concept and an own style are recognizable. The art shown here does not necessarily have to correspond to the current notions of political correctness or the actually liked art, but according to our criteria appeal you as audience and being art.
Our adjustment is: art.is! diverse and colorful.

Behind Kunst.ist! stands Bernhard Berres as an intiator of the project. In his first talks with artists he explored their interest in the project. This almost led to the name finding. In September 2016 the first start-up took place with a provisional website. The logo was created as a writing exercise in thought with the word play and has since then developed memorable. With different color schemes, it offers creative artistic freedom.
Through his contacts with artists, organizers and entrepreneurs, he has drummed the start-up troop and the first donors to finance the project. So the project could start "in a new dress" already six months after the first ideas at the beginning of April 2017.
Now it is about implementing projects and winning both participants and supporters for the future. And naturally customers who are interested in the art of kunst.ist!
