Berlin Open Studio (BOS) is an annual contemporary art event, organized for the first time in 2014 by artists, art theorists and art lovers based in Berlin. The event provides insight in the city’s exceptional infrastructure on the level of artistic production: Studios throughout the city function as participating venues, in which individual artists not only present their work, but simultaneously host that of other artists. This set-up is developed alongside with BOS’ sister organization YOS (yogyakartaopenstudio.com) in Indonesia and allows for a semi-presentational mode, in which artists define the terms of interaction. The first edition BOS 14 presented the work of international artists within the theme of Hospitality. Next year’s BOS 15 edition Double Exposure included the participation of 26 artists and, as a novelty to the event 7 art theorists and a program of artists’ talks. BOS 16 Under Cover ran from 5 – 15 September 2016 in individual studios in the Berlin city districts of Mitte, Neukölln, Schöneberg, Friedenau, Treptow, Weißensee, Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg. As a young initiative we feel that the program is being gradually appreciated and like to thank all the people and artists in Berlin, who believe in the continuation of the program, for their great support!
BOS 17 Ghost Stations will take place 2 – 12 September 2017.
