Paper positions berlin 2018 was held for the second time during Gallery Weekend in April. Her big sister, the now established art fair POSITIONS, has been enriching the Berlin art scene since 2014 and, in particular, the art autumn, the”Kunstherbst” of the captial as part of Berlin Art Week.
In the spring of 2018, the paper positions moved from their first, still relatively small location in Charlottenburg’s concept mall BIKINI Berlin to the east of the city: namely to the impressive atrium of the former telegraph office in Jägerstraße in Berlin-Mitte. With significantly more space and an elegant, classy atmosphere, the art fair gave gallery owners from all over the world the opportunity to present an overview of the diverse range of paper works to interested visitors during the gallery Weekend.
From April 26 to 29, 2018, a total of 47 selected international galleries from 11 countries presented their most important positions in contemporary and modern art with a focus on the material of paper. On display were drawings, collages, silhouettes, texts, photographs, artists’ books and objects, which were to be inspected in the best lighting conditions by the daylight ceiling of the atrium in combination with punctual lighting.
By abandoning classic berths in an open exhibition format, the exhibition was able to create an open, downright airy sense of space. It was the declared aim of the art fair organizer to create the character of a large group exhibition.
This spatial design provided the visitors with an open overview of large parts of the fair as well as the opportunity to engage in individual artistic works in mutual dialogue.
