Thirsty Garten is a special exhibition as it takes influence from the beloved Thirsty Moon – a tea shop specialising in Chinese whole leaf teas – and Teri Garten – a gallery initiated by Paul Sochacki within the shop in Berlin Mitte, 2014–2016. Together they created a space for friendship, exchange and community.HARM VAN DEN DORPEL KEITH ALLYN SPENCER MAI UEDA YANYAN HUANG THE COMPOSING ROOMS

‘How to sell a digital painting’ started as a performative action of making and auctioning a ‘Selfie Painting’, something Olmos had started doing of her own Selfies on her phone in 2014. With each step of her performance she drew attention to the banal details of the process, especially the implicit use of digital tools, with humour, transparency and sincerity. The steps are clearly illustrated in the later project ‘How to buy a Digital Portrait’.
