Every year, more than 300 artists and cultural practitioners take part in artspring berlin. For the duration of one month, some unusual locations are transformed into exhibition and event settings for a diverse cultural programme. On the final weekend, the artists open their works paces to the public. This is accompanied by an extensive festival newspaper and publications on the website.

The festival includes a film and a literature programme as well as a diverse variety of exhibitions and events.
The festival month also comes alive with the numerous events offered by the participating artists - concerts, readings, talks, and performances. Creating opportunities for artists to invite visitors into their spaces, and to get in touch with them beyond the Open Studio Weekend.

This year the art festival’s motto is: "The myth is gone". An assertion, a question, an analysis - we would like to start a conversation about it. With the artists of the greater district of Pankow, the festival partners, the public, and the public at large.

artspring berlin is an artists' project in the district of Pankow where it organises an annual art festival in May in the greater district of Pankow. A whole month of art actions, concerts, performances, readings, exhibitions, screenings, workshops and, above all, Open Studios.
