PAPER POSTIONS BERLIN 25. – 28. April 2024

As part of the eighth edition of paper positions berlin, taking place from April 25th to 28th parallel to Gallery Weekend Berlin, this year 60 international galleries showcase over 150 artistic positions from 11 countries. All positions in contemporary and modern art share one thing in common: they revolve around drawing and the material of paper. Presented in curated solo and group exhibitions, a diverse range of works on and with paper will be showcased in the atrium of the Deutsche Telekom Hauptstadtrepräsentanz. The salon-like character of our fair, avoiding closed-off booths, fosters an open and friendly atmosphere, leaving ample room for interaction.

The medium of paper knows no bounds; it has edges and corners, occasionally a sensationalist character, but at its core, a delicately fibrous heart. It encourages artists to experiment, to implement ideas, and to reject them without risking vast sums of material costs. It creates a low threshold for access, both in artistic engagement and for those looking to purchase their first or tenth artwork. For these reasons, paper forms the core of our art fair, becoming the plaything of artistic expression for each position. Exhibiting artists sew structures into the paper, draw fine pencil lines, print on it, scalp it, form sculptures, tear, collage, photograph, deconstruct, reconstruct, and delve into its hidden structures down to the fibers.

In addition to famous positions from classical modernism such as Lyonel Feininger (Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel, Hamburg), Pablo Picasso, Otto Dix (Kunkel Fine Art, Munich), and Lotte Laserstein (Dr. Nöth Kunsthandel + Galerie, Potsdam), contemporary talents are given a stage: Farniyaz Zaker (O Gallery, Tehran), Thomas Trum (CONRADS, Berlin), Tim Berresheim (Galerie Elisabeth & Reinhard Hauff), Mariella Mosler (Drawing Room Hamburg), or Esther Hagenmaier (SMUDAJESCHECK, Munich), to name a few.

Visitors are provided with an overview of the uniqueness of the medium of paper. The paper and the artists can reveal themselves from all angles. Characteristic of paper positions is the concept of an art salon in the form of a fair: byforgoing traditional booths, the atmosphere resembles that of a large, bright, and airy group exhibition. This allows for perception, discovery, rediscovery, and direct exchange about the artistic positions in dialogue. In their delicacy,vulnerability, and immediacy, the paper works benefit from the exclusiveattention they receive at this specialized art fair.
