‘SPOT THE DIFFERENCE was developed during the first COVID lockdown in Berlin in Spring 2020. While in conversation with my 9 year old niece about her weekly school newsletter, I suggested that she add a SPOT THE DIFFERENCE section. She was unfamiliar with what that was, so my partner and I did a playful shoot together. She was so elated, she decided to join us weekly via Zoom and we all worked together to make the images.’ – April Gertler
About the Artist

Further extensions of her practice include her cultural programming and curatorial projects.

About the Publisher
The project space is located in former shop premises in Berlin-Neukölln. The name WIRWIR, connects to the history of the 49m² space. Amongst its many iterations of use, it was once a brothel catering specifically to a Turkish clientele. The word vır vır means brothel in Turkish street slang and by changing a few letters, but not the pronunciation, the name WIRWIR, meaning we we, was born. WIRWIR hosts ongoing projects, and will also develop new projects along the way which will continue to shift formats by offering varying platforms for art works and artists.
