After the successful premiere in the context of the KÖLNER LISTE, there will be, also for the first time at Berlin Art Week, limited BERLINER LISTE Edition graphic prints as an exclusive offer for our fair visitors.
Special editions are not new to the art market. From Albrecht Dürer to Andy Warhol and Christo, many renowned artists have used this method to successfully push their graphic prints. Alongside art societies, galleries and museums also showcase their artwork with such editions. The artistic final touches to an edition are the proof of the uniqueness of each design, yet they are significantly lower in price than unique pieces.
The principle of the BERLINER LISTE Edition is simple. All exhibitors were invited to participate, and our curators selected ten motifs from the numerous submitted works. These have been produced in a small edition of 10 in the format 30 x 40 cm by our cooperation partner, the art publisher Posterlounge in Leipzig. They have been printed directly onto acrylic glass with bold, intense colours and sharp details. Fair visitors can take these special and ready to be hung pieces home with them right away.
These exclusive, high-quality limited and signed prints from our emerging artists will be available for only 100 Euro each.
The editions can be acquired directly at the exhibitors’ stands. This means the purchase is directly connected with the unique opportunity of meeting the artist or the gallery owner in person – and exchanging views on the piece with them.
As part of the fair’s vision, we aspire to appeal not only to experienced art collectors and art lovers, but to young and potential collectors, too. The concept of the BERLINER LISTE Editions fits perfectly to the philosophy behind this explorers’ fair. The organisers endeavour to showcase a wide spectrum of art according to the motto: Everyone should be in the position to buy art.
This guiding principle is also at the heart of the Leipzig-based company Posterlounge. “Our aim at Posterlounge is to produce art for every wall. Whether it is a classic poster, upmarket canvas, unique wooden picture or high-end Forex, Alu-Dibond or acrylic glass, art should be accessible to and affordable for everybody. We are delighted to be printing these first, exclusive editions for the BERLINER LISTE. We chose acrylic glass to print the chosen motifs, as it is a highly modern and robust material. It evokes a deep, impressive sentiment thanks to the brilliant colour results,” says Julia Nostitz, Marketing Manager at Posterlounge. The renowned art publisher Posterlounge produces high-quality art prints on various materials and offers a wide portfolio of classic pieces, contemporary graphics, modern illustrations and fascinating photographs.
