In 1985, Maximilian Barck founded the artist group "Maldoror" in East Berlin, which was devoted to surrealism. A few years later, in 1988, Barck founded the independent artist group "Herzattacke" with the goals of promoting the arts, documenting the text and artwork produced by the artists within the group, and supporting events and projects that promoted important unknown art into the public eye.
