About The Prize
The Berlin Art Prize is a newly established independent award annually honoring contemporary art from Berlin.
On June 22nd, 2013 the Berlin Art Prize will be awarded for the first time. Founded by contributors to Berlin’s arts and culture scene, the objective of the prize is to support the creative endeavors of Berlin-based artists. Four winners, selected by an independent jury of art professionals, will be awarded with an exhibition, representation in the catalog, prize money and a two-week resi- dency in a villa in San Martino, Italy. An additional 20 shortlisted artists will be presented in the exhibition and catalog.

One work of art will win the prize in each of the four categories. Any artist who has been living and working in Berlin for a minimum of six months was eligible to apply for the Berlin Art Prize.

The Jury
The winners of the Berlin Art Prize are selected by an independent, annually chang- ing jury. Jury members are strongly committed to cultural endeavors and have demon- strated an intense professional engagement with contemporary art. The jury will be “blind” during the selection process – meaning the identities of the artists will not be revealed.

The jury for the Berlin Art Prize 2013 consisted of:
Katharina Fichtner – Curator and Cultural Attaché at the Canadian Embassy Klara Hobza – Performance Artist
Antje Majewski – Installation Artist, Painter, Professor at the Academy of Arts Weissensee
Timo Miettinen – Collector, Owner of Salon Dahlmann in Berlin-Charlottenburg, Entrepreneur
Attila Saygel – Exhibition Architect
Eva Wilson – Curator at Thyssen Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna. Research Fellow at the Freie Universität Berlin

The Categories
The four, deliberately unconventionally titled categories (Best Choice of Color, Best Composition, Driest Concept and Jury’s Choice) express an oppositional stand- point towards the tendency of over-theorizing in the reception of contemporary art. With the blatancy of the titles, defining a specific scope of evaluation for a work of art becomes difficult.

The distribution of the prize-winning works into one of the four categories is subject to the free interpretation of the jury. In contrast to the simplistic titling of the categories, the artworks themselves will be viewed with earnestness.
The jury’s choice for each category will be substantiated with a statement clarify- ing their reasoning.
