Call: Summer 2022


For the next issue of this international art competition, artists are called on to propose new works for urban space dealing with changes currently affecting social practice. Public space is constituted by encounters between different people, practices, and opinions, which raises the question: How have social practices been altered by the pandemic and which platforms for meetings are needed?
Entries may be either speculative, trying out new approaches, or they may reactivate existing models from the past.

The 2022 international competition was recommended by the BAK (Beratungsausschuss Kunst) of the Berlin Senate and is being held with the support of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The realization of the competition results should take place in 2023.
