Common Ground

Around twenty international fellowships holders are brought together under the auspices of the Artists’ program each year—from a wide variety of artistic fields and with very different political, social, and geographical backgrounds. In spite of this diversity and the historic division between the four categories of visual arts, film, literature, and music, the lines of interconnection are more than obvious.

A new series, Common Ground, focuses on these interfaces and brings the commonalities, points of friction, and translation challenges associated with different perspectives and artistic positions into a constructive dialogue.

A mix of workshop talks and discussions is designed to provide fellowship holders a platform for exchanging views on topics of shared interest. Above all, we want to offer Berlin audiences an opportunity to engage in conversation with the artists—and not only when they present themselves to the public with a finished work.
