STUDIO 4 BERLIN is a platform for contemporary art, antiques and hand-selected design, uniting the expertise of three gallerists based in Berlin: Eva Morawietz, Anahita Sadighi and Anne Schwarz.
STUDIO 4 BERLIN develops interdisciplinary, intercultural exhibition concepts and offers comprehensive art advice, based on long-term curatorial practice. STUDIO 4 BERLIN sees itself as a response to an art market in transition and closes the aesthetic gap in the representation of different cultures, epochs, and media.
Eva Morawietz, Ph.D., is an expert for Asian contemporary art with a focus on photography and video. She is also Director of Development & Programme at LEAP Contemporary Art Fund. Previously, she was curatorial director of the Chinese-German gallery Migrant Bird Space (Beijing & Berlin) and used to live in Shanghai and Singapore. In Asia, she founded her pop-up gallery 'MO-Industries': with a predilection for curating various and unusual spaces, she staged exhibitions in Beijing, Berlin, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, and Vienna. Before Eva left for Asia, she used to be a curator at Berlin’s Nationalgalerie. She earned her Ph.D. in American Cultural Studies / History of Art at the University of Göttingen and University College London.
Anahita Sadighi was born in Tehran and grew up in Berlin. She studied Art and Architecture of the Islamic Middle East at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) in London. She opened her gallery, Anahita – Arts of Asia, when she was only 26, which made her the youngest art dealer in Berlin. Themes of the gallery are antique Asian and Oriental art. With the founding of the second gallery Anahita Contemporary in 2018, she extended her field of business to the sector of contemporary art – a unique combination of ancient and contemporary art in Berlin, curated by a young Berliner with Iranian roots. The gallery presents Art Informel, as well as a new generation of artists from Germany, the Middle East, and Asia. The focus is on creating an intercultural dialogue between artists of different generations. In 2016, Anahita started to curate events specifically dedicated to Persian literature and arts at her gallery. This new cultural format is called Poetry Nights.
Anne Schwarz founded her gallery SCHWARZ CONTEMPORARY in 2011 in Berlin-Neukölln and represents seven female and three male artists. The gallery’s objective is to gather relevant tendencies in contemporary art and to present them to the public in six or seven curated exhibitions per year. As of now, the gallery focuses on covering important contemporary positions from Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, and the US. In 2019, SCHWARZ CONTEMPORARY received the VBKI Award. Anne studied German-Italian Studies in Bonn and Florence with a focus on art history, and has been based in Berlin since 2002.
We communicate in German, English, French, Italian, Chinese, and Farsi.
