9 Project Spaces
9 Solo Exhibitions
The Berlin Art Prize e.V. has shown the work of its annual nominees in centrally located group exhibitions five times. In 2019 the Berlin Art Prize is collaborating with some of the spaces that provide an independent infrastructure for artistic practises and their critical reception in the city. For the sixth edition of the independent award, the Berlin Art Prize e.V. will present nine solo exhibitions by nine nominees in nine project spaces from August 30/31 through September 27, accompanied by a discursive program of events. With this, the Berlin Art Prize e.V. expands and shifts its role from a prize for new art to become a collaborative project with the independent scene.
Trophy: “Grigri”, 2019, Saâdane Afif
The nominees were chosen through an open call, followed by an anonymous selection process and studio visits with the jury. The jury announced the three winners during a midnight ceremony on September 14. The winners received prize money, an invitation to a one-month residency in Naples, and a trophy created by Saâdane Afif.
