Each year around twenty outstanding artists from a variety of cultural backgrounds are invited to Berlin. The Artists-in-Berlin Program is committed to including and presenting a wide range of voices and perspectives. Since its inception, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program has been a key player in cultivating the internationalization of contemporary art in Germany. At present, we see it as our responsibility to demonstrate a clear commitment to creating equal access, visibility, and resources through our institutional practice without measuring artistic positions against a Western art and culture system and its market.
The program is an award for outstanding international artists from the fields of visual arts, film, literature, and music & sound. Applications may only be submitted in the categories of film, literature, and music & sound. Application requirements for these specific artistic areas can be found below. Accordingly, applications cannot be submitted in this category. The DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program receives hundreds of applications every year. An application that is not accepted in no way implies a negative assessment of the applicant’s artistic work. By submitting an application, artists agree to the guiding principles of the program. guidelines
