Picture Berlin, founded in 2009, is a four-week program designed for
emerging artists working and using the medium of photography. Set in
Berlin, a city renowned for both its tumultuous political history and
its thriving contemporary art scene, this program gives participants an
unparalleled opportunity to develop their individual portfolios while
immersing themselves in Berlin's multifaceted culture. This unique
artist-initiated program encourages participants to develop an
individual approach to the photographic medium by offering close
mentoring from internationally practicing artists. Picture Berlin is
designed to be urban and mobile, actively encouraging the participants
to use the city as a resource with a rich program of workshops exploring the city, visiting artists in their studios, lectures and film evenings.
Additionally, each participant is given the option to do an internship with a Berlin-based artist during that period.
