Non profitable artist run spaces located in toilets of coffeehouses where gentrification processes laid waste to independent art spaces.

Run by antipodes café, DO GALLERI presents solo exhibitions by artists invited to create works based on instructions from another artist, selected from the open exhibition model “Do it” by the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.


The first DO GALLERI was located at KASCHK Berlin (2015).

Following the instructions “DO IT AGAIN”by Rosemarie Trockel, the german artist Pfelder presented “dorf“, opening a dialogue with his homonymous artwork, made in the same neighbourhood years ago, as well as with visitors, now sweetly invited to face this local word.

“(…) und Berlins Mitte ist zum globalisierten Dorf mutiert. Die vorherrschenden Sprachen auf der Straße sind keineswegs mehr Deutsch, die Verweildauer der dortigen Passanten in der Stadt ist kurz und die Nächte sind es auch. Der Berliner wundert sich. (…)”
