About

Brutto Gusto is pleased to present Wielandstraße 34 , a new exhibition that marks the next chapter in the gallery's existence. After twelve years of being established  in Berlin-Mitte, we are following the natural cyclic moves of the gallery scene, getting ready to open our doors with refreshed excitement at our new address in Charlottenburg. There is nothing better than to celebrate this occasion by presenting a selection of what has shaped our reputation in the city's setting – containers/sculptures made of ceramic, porcelain, glass and metal made by a careful pick of our roster of artists who are reviving the international circuit of contemporary crafts – tradition with a touch of nonconformity.

Wielandstraße 34 will showcase ten different positions, which represent various generations as a historical snapshot of the gallery, somewhere in between applied- and fine-arts. Among them is the Japanese Ritsue Mishima with her striking colourless glass vases, winner of the Giorgio Armani Award, presented by Sotheby's London. The Venetian Massimo Micheluzzi adds contemporaneity to
the traditional murrina and battuto glass techniques. In 2016, he was granted the Bavarian State Prize for innovations in the crafts. The German ceramist Johannes Nagel shapes vessels into free-form sculptures for which he received the 2019 Westerwald Prize, one of the most important accolades for outstanding ceramic works in Europe. 

If the artist says it is a vase, why not put flowers in it? Undoubtedly, the best flowers of the season will fill the table and continue to belong to our program, providing the public the joyous task of setting a dialogue among the displayed vessels. Brutto Gusto's concept, founded in Rotterdam 32 years ago, will live on blurring the boundaries between fine arts, crafts and horticulture.
