Positions Berlin Art Fair

3 years ago

From September 15-18, 2016 POSITIONS BERLIN art fair will present 74 selected galleries from 13 countries with their most concise artistic positions at Postbahnhof Berlin. The complete list of exhibitors can be found here.

The displayed artworks don’t chase after trends, but represent relevance and actuality. Strong emerging and established contemporary works are presented next to modern art and enter into a mutual dialogue, therefore the fair shakes off outdated categorizations and invites to take new perspectives. The old industrial halls of the fair location offer an attractive and dynamic environment on two levels – as well as a lounge with huge neo-Gothic windows as a special highlight. With its architecture developed by Leise Design the art fair also presents a clear aesthetic and unpretentious appearance which enables a quick orientation and draws the visitor’s attention to art.

In addition to the classic fair booths and curated shows one can also see special presentations such as those of this year’s winners of the Grafe creative award or the charity art auction of Telefonseelsorge Berlin Foundation. The Peter-Christian Schlüschen Foundation presents the winners of this year’s photography prize. The Berlin Hyp features young artists with it’s promotion programme. Together with Positions Berlin and parallel to the art fair, Berlin Hyp also presents an exhibition with selected works of last year’s winner Wolfgang Ganter in their own representative space at Budapester Straße.
