The starting point of the current Charlottenwalk was Galerie Burster in Ludwigkirchstraße. Ms. Burster gave us an insight into the current group exhibition "strive thrive arrive": works by Christian Bär, Bram Braam, Lunita-July Dorn, Tabata von der Locht and Philipp Stöckel are on display.

Guided by the triad strive thrive arrive, the artists encourage us to explore the different facets of the beginning of the year, which stands for renewal and is often the starting point for new challenges. We continued on to the Meyer-Riegger Gallery in Schaperstraße. Here, under the title "Who's the Captain of All These Boys of Death?" paintings by Alma Feldenhandler are exhibited here. Alma Feldenhandler's paintings harbor intense emotions, filled with wounded beings, torn existences and anxious forms.

We then turned into Fasanenstraße. Our first visit here was to the wonderful Galerie Crone. They have The Left-Over-Collection. Part One. Curated by Andreas Osarek. The works of a variety of artists form a wonderful, powerful ensemble here.

From then on, we stayed in Fasanenstraße. Large-format paintings by Walter Stöhrer awaited us in the Luzán Gallery. The primary colors red, yellow and blue dominate the paintings and set pieces from the real world appear again and again, so there are parallels to both doodling and the artistic techniques of surrealism.

We were then able to discover colorful, clearly structured works in the 68 projects by Kornfeld gallery. Korean artist Seong Joon Hong offers the viewer minimalist, poetic works that create a meditative state from which much beauty emerges.

At Kunsthandel Wolfgang Werner we found works by Gerhard von Graevenitz, whose works deal with the phenomena of perception, and André Thomkins, whose art deals with geometric constructions.

Our very informative and varied Charlottenwalk ended with a visit to the VBKI office. This is currently home to an exhibition by the winner of the VBKI prize BERLINER GALERIEN 2023: OFFICE IMPART with works byJagoda BednarskyandHannah Sophie Dunkelberg.

We would like to thank all the galleries that made the Charlottenwalk a very special event for us. And a particularly big thank you goes to Susanne Burmehl, who guided us through the multitude of impressions with a great deal of expertise and gave us exciting insights behind the scenes.
