“Chilean Conexión” is an exhibition of Chilean artists living in Berlin that aim to disseminate and increase the visibility of the work being developed by many migrating national artists in the German capital, with hopes to facilitate a meeting and connection between them and also within the local community.
Since the Berlin Wall fell down, many Chilean artists and musicians have been relocating to the German capital, seduced by an effervescent artistic and musical scene, and for social-cultural relations that entice them to this particular city. These migrant artists often go unnoticed due to both their youth and also the large number of artists and musicians who arrive each year in the city, competing for the same workspaces and exhibitions.
A group of them was invited for the first time in 2018 to exhibit part of the works they have been developing here, in a small collective exhibition. About 30 artists of different diciplines were presented in a single night, being received with a massive attendance of the Chilean community and also the local public.
