KW Institute for Contemporary Art and BPA// Berlin program for artists are pleased to present the BPA// Exhibition 2023, featuring works that second year BPA// participants produced over the course of their working period with the program. The exhibition takes place on two floors of KW’s front house, and allows for the individual positions as well as for cross-references to be explored.
The exhibition is accompanied by a set of essays: each artist has invited an author of their choice to reflect on their work. The bundled essays will be on sale in KW’s bookshop. In addition, a public program of tours offers a deeper engagement in the artists’ practices.
The partnership between KW Institute for Contemporary Art and BPA// Berlin program for artists began in 2020. BPA// is an artist-led organization, founded in 2016 by Angela Bulloch, Simon Denny and Willem de Rooij. The program is centered around mutual studio visits between participants and mentors. It is punctuated with a range of public events, organized together with both artist-run spaces and renowned institutions. Participation in BPA// lasts two years. It is free of charge and participants receive support to produce new work.
