Open Air POSITIONS

On Thursday, 10 September, Berlin-based artist Stephan Brenn will transform the façade of Tempelhof Airport into a poetic visual space with a large-format live projection.

In weiter Ferne so nah (Faraway, So Close!)

The special presentation is a spin-off of the parallel exhibition at the Kunstverein "Haus am Lützowplatz" (27 August - 08 November 2020), which is being shown on in the Federal Foreign Office to mark the fifth anniversary of the AArtist in Residence Programme. The project, which was co-founded in 2015 by Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the German foreign minister at the time, and Werner Tammen, chairman of the Galleries Association of Berlin (LVBG), is the first artist residency program in a German federal ministry, and is the first of its kind anywhere in the world. The residency is primarily aimed at artists who come from abroad or who apply themselves to global issues in their work. The program is part of the ministry’s cultural and educational policy that forms the „third pillar“ of German foreign policy next to political and economic relations. 

From 2016 to 2020 the following artists were supported by the AArtist in Residence programme: Said Baalbaki, Catherine Biocca, Yvon Chabrowski, Manaf Halbouni, Kerstin Honeit, Ali Kaaf, Ahmed Kamel, David Krippendorff, Andréas Lang, Beatrice Minda, Peles Empire, Yafei Qi, Henrik Strömberg, Susa Templin, Walter Yu.

In cooperation with the Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the Berlin Galleries Association (LVBG).
