Athens based art space and sweatpants shop, LIFE SPORT, is set to open its first space in Berlin. Launching under the title “Live South”, the store will open on 15 December at 6pm, at Landshuter Str.1, 10779 Berlin, with the event’s aim to promote their latest sweatpants – Edition 4 “You Nique”.
Featured in Sleek 49, LIFE SPORT were included in an article concentrating on artists and curators in Greece who come together to find creative solutions for the country’s austerity issues. This collective’s innovative idea of generating funds for alternative arts through the sale of sweatpants shows economic independence as an important company ethos, with all profits going towards promoting artists.
Following on from the store launch will be a Berlin-based group exhibition on 18 January. Participating artists include Puppies Puppies, Morag Keil, Nina Cristante, Stefanos Mandrake, Vasilis Zarifopoulos and Andreas Simopoulos, Bonnie Camplin, Ana Jotta and Michele Di Menna.
