deerBLNproject • a growing group show

Press Release:
Founded by Berlin artist Christian Rothenhagen (a.k.a. deerBLN) in 2006, the
deerBLNproject has a simple, clean yet engaging concept:
By personal invitation from Christian, artists are asked to submit an artpiece that adheres to only two rules:
the first is that it has to relate to the topic „deer“.
the second, it has to be a specific, set size of 30 x 30cm (about 12 x 12 inches).
Any medium – such as painting, drawing, collage, ... , assemblage, photography etc. is possible. It only has to be easily shipable.
With every new artist, another point of view is added to the ongoing project, and C. Rothenhagen likes to stress that the artwork does not necessarily have to feature a deer itself – to him, it is more about the things the artist associates with the topic, and the variations that inevitably occur: it is all about different perspectives.
The deerBLNproject is a constantly growing, travelling exhibition that has already been exhibited at

STRYCHNIN / Berlin (No. 4)
KAB / Europe / Bordeaux (No.5)

currently featuring more than 100 artists from 15 countries .
Exhibition No. 5 brought the show to the KEEP-A-BREAST Europe Gallery / Bordeaux / France five years after it’s launch.

Any artworks sold continues to be viewable as a print to retain a complete exhibition.
Artists whose work is sold are then invited to create a new piece – as of yet, there is no end in sight and the project continues to grow and develop...
Since it is a non-profit-network-show shipping is always a little issue.
So support is always welcome!
