For 60 years the Baltic Sea has been the holiday home of the German East, after companies built facilities and campsites on Rügen in the GDR era to send their employees and their families on vacation. The makers of the exhibition BABY SHARKS live on this tradition. Paintings, photos, graphics and installations by 30 artists are exhibited on three four by forty meter reinforced concrete walls, which are characteristic of the rural areas of the former GDR and are also reminiscent of the German-German border walls. BABY SHARKS thus connects to exhibitions in public spaces as well as to the off-site exhibitions outside the White Cube. The project was organized and initiated by the curator Sophia Pietryga and the artists Ronny Szillo, Marie Athenstaedt, Maximilian Kirmse and Andy Kania.
