paper positions berlin wants this genre to be focused on at the Deutsche Telekom Hauptstadtrepraesentanz, centrally located at Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin-Mitte. The galleries and their artists are given a presentation opportunity, which is dedicated to the subject of drawing and 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 presents the paper positions award since 2019. The award, which is given exclusively to female artists, honors an outstanding contemporary position on drawing and the medium of paper and includes a special presentation the following year. The first winner was Hell Gette (2019), for 2020 Iris Schomaker was awarded.

From 10 – 13 September 2020, during the Berlin Art Week, paper positions berlin, which was postponed from April, presented 43 international exhibitors from 8 countries with outstanding artistic positions from contemporary and modern art with the focus on drawings and the material paper at Tempelhof Airport Hangar 3-4. Experience the paper positions berlin in a 360° tour, realized by
