Half Dozen, Sydney (AU)
Half Dozen began as an annual program in 2004 comprising six exhibitions over six Sydney venues in one month, by artists working in a wide range of visual art forms. Because of the success of the format, since 2006 the program has expanded to a 12 month cycle, involving exhibitions curated by the four Half Dozen directors and in collaboration with guest curators. Several of these exhibitions have been held internationally in China and South-East Asia. Half Dozen is not tied to any single place. Operating out of an office and studio space in Chinatown, Sydney, it was conceived as a mobile event which sets up a temporary focus for visual artists. (2004-2007)

Until today, more than 100 artist colleagues have participated in the project with small exhibits — unique copies and editions. The Kunst-Imbiss is a sculpture in public space.

Visitors can see a wide range of various art forms: Drawings, paintings, ready-mades, photographs, experimental films and publications offer many topics for conversation.

Founded by Jan Holtmann in Hamburg in 1996, it does not operate its own space – as the name already suggests. Instead, it temporarily latches on to other sites, depending on the program. This can be the Hamburger Kunstverein, Hotel Atlantik, the Museum of Altona, an optician’s or the small Sophia Loren art school.
