Decad is a not-for-profit art space in Berlin which takes as its focus the reciprocity between contemporary art and critical discourse within the public sphere. With this purview, a particular emphasis is placed on socially and critically engaged art practices, understood as following in the lineage of postminimalism, institutional critique and art-in-public-space. Located in Kreuzberg, at Südstern, Decad hosts an active programme of artist talks and critical lectures, produces exhibitions by visiting curators and artists, and maintains a growing research library and archive. These various departments of Decad's broader project look to the overlapping production of visual culture and social space, considering their mutual influence. Decad was founded in 2012 by the artist Rachel Alliston.
