Slanted house manifesto

Slanted House is a white wall, a lit stage and an open door.

Slanted House is a multi-platform collective in Berlin that makes space for talented individuals and queer creators.

We curate live events consisting of readings and performances as well as exhibitions. We seek painters, sculptors, coders, film makers, musicians, poets, writers, performers, dancers and thinkers.

We use the term artist freely at Slanted House. We offer access to a space to express your ideas without imposing restraints from the art world. We do not postulate any pre-existing requirements.

We love the novice, the undiscovered, the wild and the potent.

We do not cling to normative criteria of what it means to be an artist or what it takes to have your work be seen.

Its creators, B and Roo (writer Beatrice Duncan & artist Ruhi Parmar Amin) have both come from artistic backgrounds branching into philosophy, fine art, gender studies, conceptual art and writing. Fresh out of university, they noticed a lack of space for young artists to exhibit their work, their perspectives and their identities. The urgency for Slanted House came from these artists’ desire to create a platform where innovative voices and conventionally unseen perceptions of the world are shared.

Slanted House’s first show takes place in February at Circle1 Gallery, Berlin. The theme/question posed at the launch is: what does it mean to be a contemporary subject? Issue 1 of the Slanted House zine will be available at the exhibition.

A space for new expression, Slanted House seeks to ignite, motivate and connect a community of diverse creators.
