Berlin Fellowship

Each of the Akademie der Künste’s six art sections annually appoint two international artists for the artist-in-residence fellowship in Berlin. The Akademie studios, located in the building on Hanseatenweg, are available as working spaces and accommodations. The Berlin Fellowship, which begins in May with the PLENUM of the new fellows in conjunction with the annual general members’ meeting and ends in May the following year as AGORA ARTES/an interplay of the arts (final presentations of the fellows in a Programme Night and 14-day installations), offers young artistic talents from around the world incentives to take part in an equal, interdisciplinary exchange across the arts. It embodies cross-border cooperation and artistic research like no other programme. In recent years this transdisciplinary teamwork has successfully led to diverse and stimulating new productions between the arts.
