Agora Collective offers 10 artist studios to Berlin-based practitioners within a multidisciplinary context, and one studio hosts international guests through our cooperation programs (Latinamerica / Asia). We understand art as a learning context, and many of the artists within our studio community open their practice regularly in a variety of knowledge exchange formats. Check our vibrant community and join in any of the activities offered this summer at Agora!

Currently operating daily through social media stories under @aevtarperform, researching intrapolitics and devising nanopolitics through deprogramming self/ID of societal malware at a personal and collective level, their work addresses the deconstruction and formation of identities and what stands in between the self and presence as our multi-selves interact with each other and our surroundings. #deprogram #intrapolitics #nanopolitcs #radicalempathy
LOUISE THOMAS (UK)
My practice is concentrated in the exploration of spaces that throughout history have provided humans with forms of refuge. My practice employs current ideas of the idyllic alongside historical reference to wellbeing. Projects sites have included neolithic Quoits, Victorian insane asylums, European total institutions and holiday resorts. I spend a lot of time visiting and documenting these environments and translating the findings into drawings and paintings.
London-born Louise Thomas, currently living and working in Berlin, received her BA in Fine Art from the Falmouth School of Art in Cornwall in 2007, following a Diploma in Art Foundation from Kingston University, London 2004.

NULLAM REM NATAM
Originating from the Latin phrase “nullam rem natam”- means no thing born, an emphatic idiom for nothing. Nullam Rem Natam create and destroy. Their actions are reactions.
Their reason is absurd and absurd is chaos. Unfolding secrets, revealing fears, abusing the psyche.
Hunters of intensity and seekers of purgation. An eternal circle, the serpent devouring its tail.
Nullam Rem Natam are a group of actionists, composed in Berlin in 2016.
As resident artists of Liber Null Berlin, they commit visual sins and provoke the subconscious.
Ignoring the limits and obeying to instincts, they practice and perform their experiments on photography, sculpture, installations, performance and live action painting using sacramental and ceremonial methods.
