The Junge Akademie supports international artists from all of the arts sections of the Akademie der Künste by providing residency and work fellowships as part of an interdisciplinary artist-in-residence programme. The three-month studio residencies offer fellows time, space and resources to focus on their art in a new environment. With this, the Junge Akademie programme creates an open space for artistic research and the production of art and knowledge, which is actively shaped by each year's group of fellows together with mentors and members of the Akademie. Being in touch with various established players on the Berlin art scene as well as other institutions and networks is of key importance. The Akademie considers it an essential responsibility on its part to maintain this free and protective space for artistic expression and exchange, experimentation and encounters across political and cultural borders.
Where The Story Unfolds, 2020 Work Presentation
Where The Story Unfolds, this year's work presentation by the Junge Akademie fellows, is an interdisciplinary exhibition and event format that includes performances, screenings, concerts and talks, and opens up discursive as well as experimental spaces. The exhibition is open at the Akademie der Künste on Hanseatenweg from 2 until 23 Feb 2020. Exhibition opening: 1 Feb 2020, 6:30 pm.
AGORA ARTES, Works Presentations, 2019
As part of AGORA ARTES and to close the fellowship programme, the artists will present works and ideas that they have developed either individually or collaboratively during their residency. AGORA ARTES is more than an exhibition format, it is a dynamic and interdisciplinary forum, laboratory and discursive platform used in different ways by the fellows to realise their concepts.
