Berliner Programm Künstlerische Forschung

Courtesy Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme.

The Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme was created in 2020 by the Society for Artistic Research in Germany (Gesellschaft für künstlerische Forschung in Deutschland, gkfd) with funds provided by Berlin’s Senate Office for Culture and Europe. 

It aims to strengthen and encourage research-based practices across disciplines and the exchange between the participants and their projects as well as through its public programme supports the formation of a larger artistic research contexts in Berlin. With this, the Grant Programme responds to the growing interest in artistic research and the increasing role of art in the production of knowledge and its transfer into society. Whereas in recent years PhD programmes for artists have been established at universities and art academies internationally, the Grant Programme aims to facilitate research in the arts beyond academic qualification programmes.

Every two years, the Berlin Artistic Research Grant Programme awards 13 grants to artists conducting research in the fields of fine art, film/video, literature, music, dance and theatre, as well as interdisciplinary projects. Over the course of the two years, each recipient can claim an additional project budget. Funds are also available for a joint public programme and activities such as workshops, lectures, exhibitions, performances or publications.
