  • The AUDI Casentini ArtCar presented at the Berlinale 2020

For this years 70. Berlinale the Italian artist Marco Casentini, proudly presented by HEITSCH GALLERY Munich, designs a new look for the AUDI e-tron and shows how modern art and pioneering technology create a new contemporary way of art experience! With his hard edge style Casentini transforms the e-tron into a mobile sculpture that makes art in an urban context visible.

AUDI as the official partner of the Berlinale provides this years film festival with an amazing car fleet, including the Casentini ArtCar. Already in further projects Casentini has worked with renowned automobile manufacturers and created unique artistic cars. Now he declared to design the new e-tron car of the German brand AUDI, because it is an essential aspect to take responsibility for the environment. The Heitsch Gallery has been working for 25 years as a platform of art communication and market and cooperated with various partners from industry and economy. Therefore we are happy to realize this project with the innovative AUDI brand at the Berlinale film festival 2020.

The Italian artist Marco Casentini (*1961) explores in his work the dynamics of color, texture and form. Casentini studied at the College of Art and the Accademi di Belle Arti in Carrara. Since the 1980s he has been presented in numerous solo presentations and museum exhibitions worldwide. He lives in Milan and the South of California, where light and nature particularly inspire him. In his approach to cubic form and strong color, he follows the tradition of Piet Mondrian or Lyonel Feininger and extends the arts presence into today's modern society with projects like the ArtCar. His works are inspired by the design of urban spaces. He is interested in geometry as well as into the architecture and opens with its bright, light color palette the mood of the viewer. He is inspired by the colors of the South of California and Mexico and transforms this impression in his monochromatic works.

On the 23rd of April the Heitsch Gallery Munich will open an exhibition with Marco Casentinis artworks in Munich. From the 9th of May, Marco Casentini will be presented in The Museum for Concrete Art in Ingolstadt. During the Berlinale from 22.02. - 01.03.2020 follow the Casentini ArtCar on our social media accounts on Instagram and facebook!
