tete_hotelparavent_2

tête began on the 10th of March in 2012 in the former TÄT art space on Schönhauser Allee. tête is co-financed and time-shared by a group of artists. Each artist individually organizes one month long project per year. In this manner, tête is an experiment in how an art space can be conducted. While artist-run spaces are usually based on collective decision making, tête seeks to create a cross section of artistic interests and to investigate, as well as deconstruct, any idea of ownership and community within the art space and between the artist and organizers themselves. With this in mind, tête has the potential – or even destiny – to become a social experiment. If economic or financial arrangements remained purely economic or financial, then the world would not be nearly as interesting and dynamic as we know it to be!
