We would like to express our gratitude to all those whom we were able to work with over the past few months. A special thanks goes to Prof. Pia Linz and Hanna Hennenkemper from weißensee kunsthochschule berlin, who have accompanied and supported this exhibition from its very beginning. The project would have been impossible to implement without Heinz-Günter Herpel, who has not only provided us with the ideal location in the form of his project space Kunstpunkt, but also — out of sheer enthusiasm — insisted on supporting HECKE with a generous donation. We would also like to thank the Humboldt- Universitäts-Gesellschaft, a longtime supporter of Kleine Humboldt Galerie, as well as the Mart Stam Gesellschaft and the AstA of weißensee kunsthoschule berlin for their generous sponsoring.
We would also like to express our thanks to Prof. Wim Westerveld, Prof. Dr. Mona Jas, Dr. Angelika Keune, Linde Colden, Birgit Fleischmann, Margit Bernhardt-Schulz and Burkhardt.

Working closely together with the students at Weißensee was especially valuable to the three of us. To receive insights into their thoughts, inspiration and work has had a lasting impact on our understanding of contemporary art and artistic practice. We therefore thank all of the participating artists sincerely for the teamwork and time spent together over the past year.
