Uwe Neu and Oliver Thoben opened Neonchocolate in spring 2010 in Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin. The gallery quickly made a name for itself with collectors and makers in Berlin’s young art scene, often moving beyond the mainstream but always keeping an eye to the city and a finger on its pulse. By 2013, Neu and Thoben had curated over one hundred shows dedicated to their passion for a mix of German and international, upcoming and established artists of many different styles: urban art, illustration, photography, design, painting and collage. They exhibited at art fairs and organized successful auctions. In the meantime they have been developing new approaches and creative concepts for art events, executed on the behalf of companies and institutions or on their own with a curatorial focus on Berlin’s young generation of artists.
Their current project goes by the name BERLIN WHAT? – 102 contemporary artists: a book, an exhibition tour and a love of labor.
