first edition: paper positions vienna 2024

paper positions vienna will  highlight the versatility of paper as a medium for art from 21 – 24 November 2024 at the Kursalon, Johannesgasse 33, centrally located in the heart of Vienna. The galleries are given the opportunity to showcase their positions focused on the medium of paper, with all its specific features, its fragility, and its enormous flexibility. By refraining from a conventional booth set-up, paper positions vienna chooses to focus on a salon-like architecture. The limited number of exhibitors also underlines the character of a large themed group exhibition. The spatial design of the fair with the open floorpan enables a more direct approach to the artworks.

Tagesspiegel says ...

“Paper is fragile, it breaks easily if treated incorrectly. Paper Positions impressively demonstrates what other qualities it possesses. In Berlin, the exhibition will be present for the seventh time during the Gallery Weekends. And even if the curated platform withdraws this time in June from Basel – where it is now as represented as it is in Munich, Frankfurt and Hamburg – its commitment to »art with paper« has long convinced the audience.”

- Tagesspiegel, 27. April 2023

At the eighth edition of paper positions berlin, taking place from 25 - 28 April 2024, 60 international galleries will showcase over 150 artistic positions from 11 countries. Curated individual and group presentations will display a diverse range of works on and with paper in the atrium of the Deutsche Telekom Hauptstadtrepräsentanz, centrally located at Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin-Mitte.

The medium of paper encourages experimentation and the realization of ideas while minimizing the risk of huge material costs. It creates a barrier-free approach, not only for artists, but also for those who want to buy their first or tenth work of art. For these reasons, paper is at the heart of our art fair concept, becoming the playground of artistic expressions across all positions. The floorplan is tailor-made for even the most sensitive exhibits.

Visitors of our fair gain insight into the unique qualities of paper as a medium. The paper and the artists can show themselves from all sides. Departing from traditional booth setups, paper positions adopts the ambiance of an art salon within the framework of an art fair, creating the atmosphere of a large, bright and airy group show. This format gives the opportunity to perceive, discover and rediscover the artistic positions in dialogue and to exchange thoughts directly on what has been seen.
