The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is delighted to announce that the Board of Trustees of the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation) has decided to extend its funding of the Berlin Biennale to include the 11th and 12th editions, through 2022.
The German Federal Cultural Foundation has approved an increase of 500.000 Euro in funding, set to begin already with the upcoming 10th Berlin Biennale, for a total of 3 Million Euro per edition. Since 2004, the Berlin Biennale has been funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation as one of its cultural institutions of excellence, recognizing its nation-wide importance and international reputation.
The support of the German Federal Cultural Foundation grants us not only a high degree of autonomy, planning security, and thus potential for development; it also provides the Berlin Biennale with the confidence of knowing that we have a strong partner at our side, says Gabriele Horn, director of the Berlin Biennale.
The upcoming edition of the Berlin Biennale marks its 20-year anniversary. The 10th Berlin Biennale will be curated by curator and artist Gabi Ngcobo, and will take place during summer 2018 at various venues in Berlin.
The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is organized by KUNST-WERKE BERLIN e. V. and funded by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation).
