Since 2010 curator, author and gallerist Uwe Goldenstein shows his selection of Berlin-based and European artists in galleries, museums, institutions and art fairs in Germany, Denmark, Turkey, Switzerland and Hungary. Before establishing BSA in 2010, art historian Uwe Goldenstein made researches for Rockefeller Foundation, New York, Imperial War Museum, London and was working as a lecturer, journalist and author for contemporary art. Since 2011 Goldenstein (*1971) starts to build up the "BSA Collection" with works by Nicola Samorì, Attila Szűcs, Rudy Cremonini, Adam Bota and other mainly European painters from his own generation.

Since December 2014 BSA is partner of Galerie Artdocks in Bremen, Germany. The gallery has a 350m² large and very exclusive exhibition space in a listed former harbor warehouse.

The subtle works of the BSA artists come to oppose a purely affirmative present, which — akin to an artificial ecstasy — endlessly reproduces itself and, owing to an ahistorical, thoroughly digitalised structure, vehemently curtails or indeed eliminates time for reflection, contemplation and rest. In this context, BSA presents a highly topical projection surface, a space for withdrawal and recollection, dedicated to slowness and contemplation, to weightlessness and secretive moments. It is particularly addressed to a younger generation, which — exactly like the BSA artists — is driven by an urgent desire for withdrawal, and consciously seeks salvation in complexly layered, oftentimes surreal spaces, that offer an escape from a thoroughly rationalised, linear reality. BSA: a mild form of trance, a highly relevant parallel world, a quiet, subtle appeal to detachment and metaphysical flotation. Uwe Goldenstein
