Berlin Collective is a force and active artist platform aimed at creating international discussions. BC was founded in 2009, as a reaction to a gap to fill: for international exchange to support artists/ curators/ art enthusiasts, by giving them exposure and support between countries (U.S. & worldwide).
Berlin Collective focuses on the connection between the U.S. and Berlin, Germany and beyond. Currently, we expand to NYC, Australia, Argentina, Great Britain, France, Italy, and Germany. Our aim to provide exciting opportunities, knowledge and intellectual growth to art professionals by strengthening international exposure to their work, increase to U.S. artist’s who participate, and the development of American culture in the arts.
Based on the constant growth in population of artists in the U.S. and continuation of unclear business strategies and community opportunities for emerging, mid-career, and established artists to be in dialogue, the Berlin Collective offers a bridging and dialogue amongst art professionals. We host formal and informal events featuring artists. We hope to support new frontiers and alternative approaches for them to discover international possibilities within their professional careers. We believe in the growing global market, which will boost creative approaches and transform the arts at this time due to the evolving technological advancements and abilities to communicate equally internationally and locally.
Our emphasis and design is for artists, curators, our clients to gain new relationships with artists, i.e. studio visits and immediate access and exposure in a public domain.
In addition, we have developed a study abroad program in the form of artist workshops. We invite professional artist’s to teach workshops based specifically on their practices. In other words, typically these workshops are in the artist’s studio, as we have no specific address or location, but use the city for exploration and education.
Berlin Collective is a rapidly growing force of creative possibilities, which brings together seemingly different cultures, to create a fusion of new possibilities and ultimately aims to expose surprising and alternative developments within the arts.
