Register for participation here.
Join us for the next MONTHLY MEET-UP "Working as a visual artist in Berlin"! It will be a good opportunity for visual artists, curators and professionals from the visual arts that are new to the city of Berlin to come together at ACUD MACHT NEU. We will have inputs a.o. by Andrzej Raszyk (Bezirksamt Mitte of Berlin/ Managing Director of Fachbereich Kunst, Kultur und Geschichte), Bettina Weiß (Member of the board of Netzwerk Freier Berliner Projekträume und -Initiativen), Frauke Boggasch (Spokeswoman of bbk berlin) and Linnéa Meiners (director of ACUD Galerie). And lots of opportunities to network!
This is again a cooperation with the program GOETHE-INSTITUT IM EXIL. In many countries the Goethe-Institut like other cultural institutes had to be closed due to war or censorship. GOETHE-INSTITUT IM EXIL aims to create a space where artists can meet, exchange and discuss. As part of this cooperation, we are moving our MONTHLY MEET-UP to ACUD MACHT NEU (Veteranenstraße 21, 10119 Berlin-Mitte, U8 Rosenthaler Platz).
