TURBA | TURBA Gallery Hannover | TURBA Factory Berlin
TURBA from the Latin “crowd” is an organisation of associated artists, curators, designers and scientists, which has made it its business to realise cultural projects worldwide through international cooperation. A permanent Berlin based team works together with constantly changing artists and offers them an organisational infrastructure and professional support in the conception and realisation of artistic projects. TURBA is not restricted to specific genres and fields, but sees itself as an interdisciplinary working community, which achieves the greatest possible synergetic effects by combining different topics and focal points of work.
TURBA came into being in 2014 as an experimental exhibition concept that focuses primarily on cooperation and reflection, questioning and questioning artistic positions. Since then, exhibitions, festivals, readings and performances as well as cultural expeditions and residency projects have been created in Germany, France, Switzerland and the USA.
TURBA Gallery opened on March the 15th 2018 in Stephanusstraße 23, Hanover. It is an international exhibition space that supports cooperations with contemporary artists and curators in the form of exhibitions and enables the networking of international and local cultural practitioners. At the same time, TURBA develops new international projects for other locations. In 2021, TURBA e.V. had to give up the gallery space due to the pandemic and has since continued to run the TURBA Gallery in forms of project work at various locations.
Since November 2020, the TURBA Factory exists at Teilestraße 11, 12009, Berlin. The TURBA Factory includes workshops for mould making and the processing of smaller woodwork and workshops are offered on a regular basis as a part of our program. The members of the TURBA Factory regularly offer workshops for processing these materials. Besides the use of the workshops, the members of the TURBA Factory also organize events aimed at an interdisciplinary audience. The exhibition concept of TURBA Gallery has evolved into the program of the TURBA Factory, acquiring an additional Berlin focus.
This platform presents insights into previous projects and introduces individual actors of the TURBA cosmos.
