• ( About )

    The Berlin Art Prize is an independent, annual award for contemporary art, open to all artists in the city. A selected jury awards the prize using an anonymous procedure. The three winners of the Berlin Art Prize are honored with a residency, prize money, and a trophy. All nominated artists are included in a group exhibition and accompanying catalog.

    Four Berliners, all working in the arts, launched the Berlin Art Prize. First awarded in 2013, from the beginning it was the goal of its initiators to present the wide scope of art from Berlin to the public, while also  bringing together the diverse art scene. A meticulous cover version of pre-existent art prizes was the way to that goal. This humorous yet accurate variant also has a founding myth: the one-hundred year anniversary of the discovery of a celestial body called Sorga (Sorge means “worry” in German).

    Despite the formal mode of a traditional art prize, the Berlin Art Prize aims to offer an alternative structure in which art is evaluated, interpreted, and publicly presented: Open for all, names and careers don’t count – only Berlin art!
