Kultur | lx accompanies a delegation of artists to the Berlin Biennale

In the context of the 12th Berlin Biennale, which will take place from June 11 to September 18, 2022, Kultur | lx – Arts Council Luxembourg offers 10 artists and freelance curators a program of meetings with residency directors and curators, and visits to the biennale’s exhibitions.

Every two years, the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art brings together international artists, theoreticians, and practitioners in exhibitions and accompanying programs. With its political profile, it stands for committed art that addresses the urgent questions of the present. The 12th Berlin Biennale is curated by Kader Attia.

Kader Attia looks back on more than two decades of decolonial engagement. As an artist, thinker, and activist, he has been particularly engaged with the notion of REPAIR—first of objects and physical injuries, and then of individual and societal traumas. Throughout his practice, repair has emerged as a mode of cultural resistance, a form of agency that finds expression in diverse practices and fields of knowledge. In his role as curator of the 12th Berlin Biennale, Attia makes this form of agency the starting point of a program that involves contributors and audiences in a critical conversation, in order to find ways together to care for the now.”

The program of the three days organized by Kultur | lx from July 20-22 will be communicated in the next days on the site of Kultur | lx.

The participants have to organize their travel and accommodation. They should arrive in Berlin on July 20 before 10:00 a.m.
Kultur | lx will cover the costs (for 3 days and 2 nights), participants are invited to apply for a mobility support on our website. Participants who have a portfolio in German with a project with the German territory or with Berlin will have an advantage.

Deadline to apply : July 10,2022


About Berlin Biennale
The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art takes place every two years at varying locations in Berlin and is defined by the differing concepts of its renowned curators. It promotes experimental formats and provides the appointed curators the space and freedom to present the latest relevant and challenging positions independent of the art market and collection interests.
Each edition brings together artists, theorists, and practitioners from different fields to let them enter into a dialogue with the city of Berlin and its public. The German capital is continuously under change thus remaining fragmented, diverse, and contradictory. The Berlin Biennale explores artistic developments to present the unseen and the unfamiliar against the backdrop of this stimulating atmosphere. Participation in the exhibition has contributed to numerous young artists achieving international status.
