Frontviews is a group of international artists and theorists.
Based on flexible collaborations we develop concepts of contemporary art in Europe. The initiative was founded in 2012 and is registered in Berlin as a non profit association for arts and culture.
Three principal points shape our agenda:
1. The detection of acute tendencies in contemporary art
2. The on going quest to initiate collective cultural encounters
3. To develop conversations and exchange with artists from other countries, particularly those in Europe.
Dušica Dražić is an artist and curator that explores spaces of irregularity that carry strong political meaning. She analyses their transformation and rethinks them at the level of cultural continuity. The history of the place and opposing interpretations of the same past were always in the foreground of her work. Often the complexity of the subject entails a combination of scientific and artistic approaches, that fosters transdisciplinary approach. Dražić was awarded “Dimitrije Bašievi Mangelos” Award and “Young European Artist Trieste Contemporanea” Award in 2010. She was a resident at Q21, Vienna (2018), IASPIS, Stockholm (2015), KulturKontakt, Vienna (2013), TimeLab, Ghent (2012), Tobana001, Ljubljana (2011) and ISCP, NYC (2010).

Yvon Chabrowski, born in East-Berlin, studied photography with Timm Rautert and Florian Ebner at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig and the École nationale supérieur des beaux-arts Lyon. She graduated from Peter Piller`s Meisterklasse.Her work deals with the visual formulas of contemporary media, which she decontextualizes, making them graspable by creating a reflexive distance. Her video installations thus create awareness for the grammar and manipulation strategies of omnipresent media images.Yvon Chabrowski, born in East-Berlin, studied photography with Timm Rautert and Florian Ebner at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig and the École nationale supérieur des beaux-arts Lyon.
