peer to space is a mindset which combines the concept of peer-to-peer networking with the ideas of space, freedom and openness to artistic expression. peer to space is not an actual place but occupies other spaces to realize exhibitions and further projects related to art dealing with the world we live in now.

Further, she is the founder and editor of the zine Darkheaven, an anthology of diverse contributions on specific topics. The first issue on “secrets” will be released in the beginning of 2017.

peer to space's history
2010 – 2014
peer to space was founded by Maja Block and Tina Sauerländer in Munich, Germany in 2010. With interdisciplinary exhibitions, workshops and other projects, peer to space presents new forms of expressions and approaches in young contemporary art. peer to space serves as a platform for artistic exchange of knowledge and experience focusing on digital and Internet art, performances and photography. From 2010 to 2012 Maja Block and Tina Sauerländer realized the projects Multiplex, SCHHPLTTLR electric beats, DREI / 3 / III, Identity Reset? and Non-Stop Infinity. From 2012 on Maja Block runs peer to space in Munich and Tina Sauerländer in Berlin, where she has organized and curated the shows Entering Space and VISUAL NOISE.
July 2014 – now
Tina Sauerländer runs peer to space on her own. The initial focus on Digital and Internet art, performances and photography has been broadened. peer to space explores current threads within different areas of international contemporary art. Subject based group exhibitions link content- or media-based relations of diverse artistic approaches. They merge attitudes, conceptions and ideas. peer to space provides relevant indications and references for contemporary mindsets and thoughts not only artistically, but also on a societal level.
