Art Next Door #24 Conversation with gr_und (James Verhille and Damien Sayer)
This new episode of the Art Next Door features gr_und, a nonprofit artist-run space situated in Wedding, Berlin. In this conversion we talked to James Verhille and Damien Sayer from gr_und.  The other members of the project space who were not in this interview are Anna Frick, Cedric Mantel, and Nina Blume.  We talked about the space, their program of 2022 and how they plan organise their events. What makes gr_und unique is that their Sprache Stunde concept on Tuesday that allows artists to meet the members to discuss their practice, review their portfolios and discuss for a possible collaboration in the future. Check out their website and get in touch with them for an appointment to get to know them. https://gr-und.com/ If you like this podcast series, you can support and buy me a coffee. :) www.buymeacoffee.com/tuce

I have a specific interest in collectives, initiatives, and project spaces in general. But I did not have any specific idea to start doing this interview series until Julia from Keith F’em asked me to contribute to their online radio. So that’s how Art Next Door radio show and podcast project started in mid-July, 2020.  I have to share this disclaimer though… Of course, I had the idea of featuring TOP at some point, so this episode coincides with my upcoming project at TOP, scarecrow, a collaboration with my partner Korhan Erel. So this episode is very personal.  Due to the lockdown in November, this project cannot be opened to public visits. The project is documented and visible on YouTube.
