SOMA Art Gallery is an independent contemporary art and culture space and initiative that encourages collaboration between cultural professionals, artists, academics and social activists from all over the world, with the larger aim of supporting a sustained dialogue. SOMA means Moonlays in the oldest language, Sanskrit. The world of the Moon is not as bright as it naturally should be; rather, it is positioned as the shadow of the Sun. The art practices and themes that lay under the moon side – women, non-west, less-told stories, issues from less-mentioned regions – are SOMA's main interest to showcase, yet this founding concept doesn't imply that it stands for any established doctrines or ideologies. SOMA defines itself as a platform where true, mindful dialogue begins by presenting the artworks strongly connected with the oldest question and matter of being human: Who we are, Where we are, Where our soul is now. SOMA believes the open-warm-heart-feeling tactic will lead to its vision, rather than the cold-systemized-think way. The not-for-profit art-socio space SOMA is located in multicultural Kiez, Kreuzberg, Berlin. It was founded in 2014 by journalist and artist Nabi Nara. In 2015, SOMA presented within ONS program of the Netzwerk freier Berliner Projekträume und -initiativen at KW Institute for Contemporary Art. In 2016, SOMA promoted 40 Berliner artist's works in Northern Africa within the Nomadic Exhibition Programm.
