Berlin is a city full of stories, history and change. To empower our local artist community and discover new sides of Berlin, we have launched a talent program – Emerging Berlin – where photographers at the early stage of their career are given the space to exhibit at Fotografiska.

About the program

Emerging Berlin is a program devoted to researching, supporting and showcasing new voices from Berlin. Selected through an open call for proposals, the program will exhibit six artists per year in Fotografiska Berlin's graffiti hall - a historically important and meaningful space for Berlin’s artistic community. The exhibiting artists receive a solo exhibition, mentorship, press and media opportunities, and direct professional exchange with experts from the field. The program will also include workshops and portfolio reviews open to the public, to continue to support local talent.

The talent program for upcoming artists, showcasing unique Berlin stories.

Triple Seven

Berlin has undergone remarkable transformations since the 2010s. Walking through its streets, you'll see freshly painted facades, some buildings completely vanished, and new constructions standing tall. In Triple Seven, Anne Lass works with still life and portraits to track down gambling halls in Berlin, which are often a closed universe in themselves, and have now mostly disappeared.
