Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.  It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy

Berlin plays host a thriving international art community that is somewhat ephemeral and transitory.  Artists come here from all over the world; Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Peru, Romania, South Korea, Spain, and the U.S. – just to name a few and stay for varying amounts of time: so the posts will appear not only in English – but will reflect the international nature of this community.

The blog posts will mainly focus on artists and events in Berlin, but will also extend to include other cities; the hometowns of the artists that have made Berlin their home permanently or temporarily. Berlin is the connection and we’ll get to know each other through our art and the exploration of our respective cities.

It’s a way to document and through that documentation give a voice to the artwork and those who create and support it.
