The »Kunst im öffentlichen Raum | Kunst am Bau« (art in public space) working group at Deutscher Künstlerbund brings together artists with a shared interest in engaging with public space.
Meetings focus on an open exchange of information and support, including critical discussion of current calls for tender and competition procedures.
The positions developed by the working group aim to improve the conditions of artists who work in public space and to increase visibility for their role. The results are communicated to the board of Deutscher Künstlerbund, from where they find their way into the relevant political committees where they may ultimately make a positive impact.
The working group was founded in 2016 and meets every two months on the premises of Deutscher Künstlerbund in Berlin (by video conference since summer 2020).
