Cc initiates latest collaboration between DS Automobiles and Katrin Fridriks
Today, companies have to find creative solutions and come up with new ideas in a faster sequence in order to survive in this increasingly fast-growing and competitive world. Because of that more and more companies discover the potential of artists and want to collaborate with them. Since 2001 Cc connects companies with artists and accompanies them during the collaboration. With the gallery in the background one of Cc’s big advantages is speaking both languages: Cc knows the fears and wishes from artists and at the same time those of the companies. Past collaborations have shown that with the help of Cc as an intermediary, artists and companies can work more successful together so that the expectations from company and artist side were often exceeded. Recently a new inquiry came up to us: DS Automobiles asked us to cooperate with Circle Culture galleries constant artist Katrin Fridriks for their "spirit of avant-garde" campaign. In this collaboration photographer Jörg Nicht travels in search for the avant-garde with a DS 3 performance line around Europe. On his first stop Katrin Fridriks shows him her breathtaking studio and her favorite places in Paris.

THE SOLAR PANEL COLLECTION @ TOA
When Art, Science and Charity come together
It’s TOA time again! This weeks number one topic in Germans capital is definitely TOA. TOA, that means “Tech Open Air”, an interdisciplinary festival, that invites entrepreneurs, artists, scientists and the interested public to join conferences, workshops and networking events. This year the host had the great idea to offer a space for the “Solar Panel Collection”, a platform where renewable energy meets artistic creativity. We are delighted to announce that artists of Circle Culture Gallery, such as XOOOOX, Katrin Fridriks and Annina Roescheisen were also invited to employ solar panels as an artistic medium. These resulting bespoke artworks are now exhibited at Berlin’s “Haus of Tech” and subsequently sold online in a benefit auction at Dorotheum (dorotheum.com). The proceeds going to Little Sun’s “Solar Kids School Program”, a humanitarian project that provides clear, safe and sustainable light to circa 2,000 school children and their teachers in Rwanda.

TENNIS ACROSS BORDERS
Just in time for Wimbledon Björn Borg launches an excellent political campaign
Since Donald Trump promised to construct a massive wall between the U.S. and Mexico, in the last months several creative initiatives came alive in order to stand up for openness, acceptance, diversity and unity. The latest campaign by Björn Borg is one of those. With "Borg Open" a tennis match on the U.S. – Mexican border, the Swedish sports brand wants to manifest an open world, in which sports has the power to unite people. "We hope to inspire people to reach out to their neighbours and do sport together instead of building walls", says Björn Borg CEO Henrik Bunge in a statement. The "Tennis across borders" campaign combines sports, politics, creativity and economy and thus makes successfully clear: Brands don’t contribute exclusively to consumption. Their power is much greater, because people can also be politically influenced by them. Cc illustrates brands their great political impact and consults them to find a creative way to stand up for the right values.

German Youth Culture
What a great start to the year. Since January Cc executes consumer research projects for Nike AGS with the aim to dive deep into the culture, mindset and lifestyle of 14 to 22 years old consumers in Berlin. In order to achieve these insights Cc believes firmly that an ongoing contact to young target groups is indispensable. Instead of "once-in-a-while-talks" with potential consumers, Cc uses several methods such as snapshot telephone interviews, whats app groups, in-home dialogues, workshops and product evaluations at the Nike showroom to stay in close contact with the target group.
