The Art Association Giannozzo in Berlin promoted
the plastic art of the present. It presented plastic work of artists,
who go beyond the conventional concept of sculpture. Emphasis in the
program of the art association formed space and site specific
artistic work and such, which includes the time dimension into the
actual sculptural art, as for instance sound installations.
Giannozzo pursued exclusive and directly non-profit purposes. It financed its work from the annuities of its members, subsidies of the public hand and from donations.
Giannozzo presented work enabled by artists in its
own spaces in Suarezstrasse in Berlin-Charlottenburg, in addition, gave
artists the opportunity to be active in other situations in the urban
space artistically .
During the 90s the focus of the art association was on Festivals with performances, concerts and sound as well as video installations.
The program was accompanied by the attempt to examine the plastic art and the field of work of Giannozzo, in which music, art and science meet. For this purpose the art association organized a series of Symposia.
