“For art and friendship” is the motto of the artist collective Borgo Ensemble. In 2009 originally founded as a music group by the object and performance artist Reiner Bergmann, developed in the following years a busy artist groups in Nürenberg. The ensemble showed its potential so far at different locations, including a administration house, Residential buildings and a car dealership, each of this location not only serves as a meeting place, but also as Exhibition and event locations.
Basis for the creative collaboration of the registered association Borgo Ensemble, which operates in a former post office, is an expanded artistic term: in addition to painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, also music, performance, philosophical Lectures and the legendary Cinema borgese – a series of short films. This Book not only presents the previous locations, but also 32 main protagonists with their works. Texts by Reiner Bergmann, Andrea Dippel, Matthias Egersdörfer, Ludwig Frambach, Max Hanisch and Marian Wild lead the way through history and the present of the Borgo Ensemble.
