CHANCES OF CRISIS – movements out of an unstable field
Berlin, Germany

jeweils 16 – 22 Uhr
in den arttransponder, Brunnenstraße 151, 10115 Berlin

The effects of the financial crisis on the field of art, including its production and circulation within art institutions, have already left visible traces on an already economically unstable field which is characterized by precarious working conditions for artists. Many project spaces, art initiatives, art projects and galleries are experiencing restructurings, major financial difficulties and closure. Incentives (here I mean grants and project sponsoring), mainly for small or non for profit organizations have been cut back, frozen or been linked to specific conditions for support. International projects have been affected as well. Confirmed project plans with signed contracts, guided with the commitments of financial support from German foundations are being canceled without any further notice.
