Mayer Pavilion is its community of artists, musicians, and performers united by a common vision. Whether through digital or analog setups, our mission is to enhance awareness and provide new ways of presenting art under challenging times.
We believe that art communities can contribute significantly to social change and people's lives. We believe in the healing and unifying power of art, where the barriers between the cultural scene and the social context are vanished.
EXPERIMENTS BEGUN IN 2020
There is no certainty that art can change the world,
but without art, nothing will change
Mayer Pavilion it’s an experimental space for art and active discourse started in 2020 in a 60sqm studio as a response to the closures of cultural spaces during the lockdowns to reconnect artists and communities.
The project is based on an experimenting idea because it is not established or finalized. It was developed during difficult times in response to the growing urge to reconnect people together and prevent losing grip on reality but now Mayer Pavilion is totally out of control!
Isn't it fun?
Due to the progressive expansion of our artistic community and audience, we started to open collaborations with project spaces, theaters, and larger venues. We have nevertheless maintained the same welcoming and intimate approach that has characterized us from the beginning.
Time of change
The progressive changes our society is undergoing at various levels:
cultural, economic, political and environmental
requires us to take a multi-disciplinary approach.
Our event’s format combines
in a unifying space different artistic fields such as visual art,
music concerts, and performances with learning, and
interactive components such as workshops, ceremonies, and open discussion.
We believe that a holistic understanding of ourselves can be revealed by crossing disciplines and providing a unique space for physical interaction.
THERE IS NO ONE SINGLE ANSWER
With the understanding that there is no single answer, our exhibition format invites viewers to experience the works in different situations such as concerts, meditations, and interactive activities. By doing so, the spectator is creating a personal relationship with the artworks and the artist.
During the pandemic, we have witnessed an increase in depression, anxiety, and other mental ailments. As a response to the health emergency, we worked in a new curatorial direction, by expanding the notions of healing in the western and eastern cultures.
Notions of healing in western and eastern cultures
We broadened the understanding of natural healing methods, ceremonies practices, and art inspired by ancient cultures. Cacao Ceremonies, rituals, Mandala Creation, conscious movement and meditations are fundamental parts of our program while we keep exploring new technologies invested in artistic expressions.
Human Recovery Projects
Isolation and lockdowns have divided people, despite this, the health system has maintained the same methods of cure for those who suffer from mental diseases. In response to the pandemic, our artistic community created a series of recovery projects, one of which is titled: Unifying Gate Festival
The Other Side Of Zeros And Ones - Performance By Selen Martinez Giron
Just take a breath
Unifying Gate Festival - Performance By Kdindie
Self Awareness, Cooperation and Critical Thinking are the foundation's guiding principles of our project space.
Mayer Pavilion is a symbol of imagination, discovery, and innovation.
We are representing the work of artists from of marginalized political minorities and provide a working environment that is supportive, respectful, and non-judgmental.
Support for people in countries torn by war
For a couple of months we turned our exhibition space into a temporary living space to host refugees. For the time they needed support, we paused our artistic program and we provided shelter. During this period we moved for continuous support, whatever it might be, financial or bureaucratic, to people in countries torn by war. We are giving voice to artists from war-affected countries.
Sustainability and recalibration with Nature
In June 2022 we launched an open call for artists, engineers and creative thinkers to re-imaging and co-create a space for culture exchange in Berlin in-between urban and nature areas.
Titled Nowhere Museum, the open call is an ongoing project aiming to actualise a new prototype for future institutions in a series of semi-abandoned places in Berlin.
