Berlin Art Prize > Open call

An anniversary – the Berlin Art Prize is entering its fifth year. All artists who have lived in Berlin for at least six months are now invited to apply for the independent art award. 

The exhibition with all nominees will take place at The Shelf in Kreuzberg, from August 31 to September 28, 2018. It will be accompanied by an extensive program of readings, performances, discussions, and workshops. Artist Zuzanna Czebatul will create the trophy for the three winners, and the four-week residency will take place in collaboration with Queens Collective in Marrakech, Morocco in early 2019.

The winners of the Berlin Art Prize 2018 will be chosen by the jury during the exhibition and announced at the end of the exhibition. The jury will justify their selection of the winners in a short text.

The fifth edition of the Berlin Art Prize is generously supported by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.

All Berlin Art Prize nominees will receive a 700€ participation fee, which includes any production costs for the exhibited works. In addition to the exhibition and publication, the three winners of the Berlin Art Prize will also be awarded with a cash prize, a trophy created for the occasion by a Berlin-based artist, and an invitation to a residency in Spring 2019 in Marrakech, Morocco hosted by the Queens Collective. More details on the dates and location of the residency will be provided when the nominees are announced. Flights and accommodation will be covered by the Berlin Art Prize e.V. Any additional costs, including food and travel during the residency, will be the responsibility of the prize winners. Participation in the residency is not obligatory.

Deadline: 30 May 2018
