They find and represent artists with unique talent and ideas, a strong vision, and compelling style. Age or education are not the most important criteria. They are more interested in authenticity, perseverance, professionalism, and outstanding artworks – no matter the medium.

Call for artists application / registration

Deadline: 30 Jun 2016

The 13th edition of Berliner Liste will be held from September 15th to 18th, 2016, parallel to Berlin Art Week, in the legendary Kraftwerk Berlin. The unique, raw, and urban atmosphere of Kraftwerk in Berlin Mitte, the former East Berlin power station, is the ideal location for Berlin’s oldest and biggest art fair.

As an exhibitor, artists will get the opportunity to perform side by side with galleries and project spaces, present art to an audience of specialists as well as to the general public, and offer works for sale.

As a forum for emerging, international art at affordable prices, the Berliner Liste attracts every year a wider audience. 123 exhibitors from 23 countries presented their work to more than 11,000 young collectors, art lovers, and fans at last year’s show.
