2020 PROJECT SPACE AWARD

The Project Space Award will be handed out for the ninth time on Thursday, 10 September 2020. Under them motto *move it, this year Netzwerk freier Berliner Projekträume und –initiative addresses the special situation of the pandemic and celebrates the prize winners with a feeder ride in the city. The award winners will start off in rickshaws from their respective locations and the prizes will be presented by Dr. Klaus Lederer, Senator for Culture and Europe, at the final destination, Kunstpunkt Berlin. The rickshaw tours will be accompanied by artistic interventions undertaken by the artist Laura Mello. Along the feeder ride, a street-side audience maintaining coronavirus social distancing rules will be welcome. The award ceremony for this year’s Project Space Prize will be held at Kunstpunkt Berlin, Schlegelstrasse 6, 10115 Berlin, maintaining the coronavirus rules applicable at the time. 

In a sense forming collectively the city’s largest exhibition space, Berlin’s project spaces and initiatives contribute to decentralization, variety, and diversity. The city needs us, and we need security to pay our rents, to secure our own livelihoods, and to help preserve our autonomy.

*Let’s move in solidarity!

The Network of Independent Berlin Project Spaces and Initiatives has existed as an association since 2009 and is a registered non-profit organization since 2015. As an advocacy group the network advances internal communication within the project space scene, and articulates its interests and needs through public discourse and political events. The network campaigns for the strengthening, interconnectedness, and visibility of its autonomous and independently organized operations and working structures. As a stakeholder in the independent art scene of Berlin, the network is open to all whose artistic activities are interdisciplinary, transcend boundaries, and are not market oriented.
