Berlin is the European capital of contemporary art, and right here in Berlin exactly 110 years ago German Expressionism developed. The reunion with the fathers of Expressionism was a necessary moment in the evolution of Hyperexpressionist artists. Time to get back to basics. The Retramp Gallery showed immediately a great enthusiasm in embracing our project, so much so that since March has given us the availability to accommodate our major exhibition in its spaces. The exhibition “Die Zeit des Hyperexpressionismus” opened July 12, 2016, with a large participation of the public and critics. There were two critics of Staatlich Museen zu Berlin, who were impressed by the setting up and the strength of the exhibit.
This is time for Hyperexpressionism, of exaggerations and contradictions: the “post ergo sum”. We chose Berlin, symbolically the cradle of modernity and of all its paradoxes, to mark the passing of the baton to a possible future of art characterized by originality and authenticity. The Retramp Gallery is located in Neukolln, a central district full of sociological and cultural influences. The term gentrification was born here, the appearence of the neighborhood is completely altered compared to a few years ago. The Hyperexpressionism in Berlin, represented by Fosco Sileoni and Iacopo Maria Fiorani, took the road of internationalization, thanks to the participation and contribution of two artists, Daniel Nagengast from Dusseldorf, and Olga Raciborwska from Warsaw. Hyperexpressionist wave is unstoppable and inexorable as time is passing by, feeding itself from history and memory.
