From 30 April – 03 May 2020, parallel to the Gallery Weekend, paper positions berlin invites international galleries to apply with outstanding artistic positions from contemporary and modern art with the focus on drawings and the material paper.
In the impressive atrium of Deutsche Telekom Hauptstadtrepraesentanz, near the centrally located Gendarmenmarkt, paper positions berlin wants this special genre to be focused on. The galleries and their artists are given a presentation opportunity, which is dedicated to the medium of paper with all its specific features, its fragility and its enormous versatility. In the spirit of its fair concept, which refrains from classic booths and is completely tailor-made for the most sensitive exhibits, paper positions berlin deliberately focuses on a salon-like situation. The limited number of exhibitors also underlines the character of a large theme-based exhibition. The spatial design offers an open overview as well as the possibility to directly approach individual artistic works and to perceive them in a mutual dialogue.
Together with .rka Rechtsanwälte Hamburg/Berlin, paper positions berlin 2020 presents the paper positions award for the second time. The award honours an outstanding contemporary position on the subject of drawing and the medium of paper and includes a special presentation in the following year. First awarded artist was Hell Gette (2019).
