Over the last few years, PICTURE BERLIN has learned new methodologies and frameworks for thinking together. These platforms continue to show us how we can build on sharing our user experiences of our lives. PICTURE BERLIN’s upcoming Winter Session considers the broad theme of caring for our artistic practice and as living beings; Ask your hands to know the things they hold, a line from the Kae Tempest song, HOLD YOUR OWN, suggests self-awareness, understanding and knowing. By using their phrase as the title of our newest Session, we will explore pressing topics in the life of an active artist through a series of online workshops on the following topics; Mental Health, Grant Writing, Nourishment, and Strategies of Working in addition to readings and multiple portfolio reviews with international art world professionals.
As our world has morphed into an unrecognisable shape from only a few years ago, how can we move through this new world as better artists and better humans? How can we care for, care about and care with each other?
PICTURE BERLIN is mixed discipline and welcomes artists from all nationalities identifying as visual, conceptual, video, writers, poets, multidisciplinary, performance, installation and photographers. PICTURE BERLIN is known for its immersive programming. This unique online edition will have the same type of immersion by all of us (virtual participants and core group of Berlin based artists and curators) meeting daily for 8 days in total for 1.5 – 5 hours depending on the topic of the day.
