Berlin program for artists

BPA facilitates exchange between emerging and experienced Berlin-based artists, through coordinated studio visits and meetings.
BPA does not have a fixed location – activity is concentrated in the studios of the artists involved with the program. Ten participants meet with a core group of ten mentors and a wider group of guest mentors. Twice a month participants present their work in concentrated one-on-one visits in their own studios, followed by a group discussion in a mentor’s studio. A participation cycle lasts one year, from January to December. The program initiates at least one public-facing exhibition per year. BPA does not charge fees to participants, and since 2017 it has offered participants a grant to produce new work.
