the art fair

From 25 – 28 april 2024, parallel to the Berlin Gallery Weekend, the eighth edition of paper positions berlin presents 60 international galleries from 11 countries. Their more than 150 positions in contemporary and modern art all have one thing in common: they all focus on drawing and the material of paper.

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 expression across all positions.

Visitors to 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 adopt the ambiance of an art salon within the framework of an art fair, creating the atmosphere of a large, bright, and airy paper-themed group show. This format gives the opportunity to perceive, discover, and rediscover the artistic positions in dialog and to exchange thoughts directly on what has been seen.

"High-quality, flooded with light, affordable for average earners, and indeed imbued with a warm atmosphere: the 'Paper Positions,' spring offshoot of the Berlin art fair 'Positions Berlin' and with appearances in five European cities, ranks among the more cheerful art fairs."
