Open Call for Berlin Art Prize

Mar. 11, 2022

After a two year pause due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Berlin Art Prize is back and currently accepting applications for their 2022 awards. This year, the prize will collaborate with nine independent Berlin project spaces including ACUD Galerie, Blake & Vargas, Centrum, Die Möglichkeit einer Insel, LAGE EGAL, Peles Empire, Scherben and Spoiler.

A five-member jury—consisting of Candice Breitz, Anna Ehrenstein, Alya Sebti, Sinthujan Varatharajah and Amelie von Wulffen—will select nine nominees according to a nearly anonymous process. The artist nominees will each be invited to present a solo exhibition in one of nine project spaces, making the Berlin Art Prize 2022 once again a major collaborative project. The nominee solo exhibitions will take place from September 2nd to October 14th, 2022 and will be accompanied by a supporting program of readings, performances, discussions and workshops. During the solo exhibitions, the jury will select three final winners.

Due to the current political situation, any visual artist who is currently living and working in Berlin can apply. Applicants should submit a selection of a maximum of five works that have been produced within the last five years with a brief description in either English or German. There is an application fee of €10, but this may be waived in certain cases. All successful applicants will receive €1900 (brutto) remuneration for their participation in the exhibition plus a moderate production budget.
