Open Call Mini Prints Berlin 2019

Deadline: from March 1 - August 1, 2019

All professional artists are invited to participate in our Open Call Graphic Prints Berlin. This special graphic exhibition was established by Galleri Heike Arndt DK as “Graphic Prints Berlin”  and has been a recurrent event at Galleri Heike Arndt DK in Berlin since 2014.

From 2019, for the 5th anniversary of the exhibition, we are happy to announce that the exhibition will present a fresh profile. Galleri Heike Arndt DK will collaborate with Galerie Kuchling for a new edition of the well-established exhibition. Since both galleries share the same neighbourhood in Berlin-Friedrichshain along the Karl-Marx-Allee / Frankfurter Allee, their mutual goal is to create a greater and more diverse platform for international, contemporary artists in this area and beyond.

The collaboration of the two galleries makes it possible not only to extend the amount of works but also the sizes which will be accepted. To give this productive change a name, we decided to redefine the exhibition as “MiniMaxi Prints Berlin”.

By participating in this print exhibition, you are given the opportunity to exhibit your work in one of the two galleries (It will NOT be possible for artists to choose the gallery to be shown ). Also, it is the perfect opportunity to develop your network within graphic art connecting you to many other international artists.
