MOMENTUM is a global platform for time-based art, with a mission to promote the work of and enable exchange between exceptional international artists, galleries and institutions while continuously reassessing the nature and relevance of time-based art. MOMENTUM is a non-profit institution which collaborates with both commercial and non-commercial galleries, private collections and art initiatives. Launched as an exhibition and international symposium of galleries and art professionals in Sydney in 2010, MOMENTUM is now based in Berlin with a Gallery Space, Exhibition and Salon Program, a Public Art Initiative, and a Collection of video art donated by artists. In addition MOMENTUM is developing several Artists’ Residencies across international locations. The Berlin gallery functions as a gallery of galleries, selectively inviting international artists through their galleries and private collectors to show time-based art. In 2011 MOMENTUM’s programs collaborated with leading galleries in Australia, Hong Kong, and New York, while in 2012 we have shown renowned artists from China, Poland, America, Australia, Germany, and more. MOMENTUM launched an Emerging Artists Series to support exceptional Berlin-based artists, and participated in local and international Festivals. Curated group shows are also featured, each being accompanied by screenings on our Public Art Screen, SKYSCREEN, as well as a Salon event. MOMENTUM Salons bring selected art professionals together to discuss each current show and its broader implications. MOMENTUM has a growing Collection of international video art, which we exhibit in Berlin and abroad, and that we make available on our website as a resource to educate the public and art professionals alike, opening up a world of video art from the most established to emerging artists, working with a diversity of techniques and ideas.


MOMENTUM is a Gallery, a Salon, a Collection, a Residency, a Public Art initiative, and a Network active in several parts of the world. By enabling exhibition, discussion, collection, creation, and exchange, MOMENTUM is a platform which challenges the notion of time-based art both in the context of historical and technological development. As the world speeds up, and time itself seems to flow faster, MOMENTUM seeks to explore how time-based art reflects the digitization of our societies and the resulting cultural change.
