Mini Maxi Prints Berlin

All professional artists are invited to participate in our Open Call Graphic Prints Berlin. This special graphic exhibition was established by Galleri Heike Arndt DK as “Graphic Prints Berlin”  and has been a recurrent event at Galleri Heike Arndt DK in Berlin since 2014.

From 2019, for the 5th anniversary of the exhibition, we are happy to announce that the exhibition will present a fresh profile. Galleri Heike Arndt DK will collaborate with Galerie Kuchling for a new edition of the well-established exhibition. Since both galleries share the same neighbourhood in Berlin-Friedrichshain along the Karl-Marx-Allee / Frankfurter Allee, their mutual goal is to create a greater and more diverse platform for international, contemporary artists in this area and beyond.

The collaboration of the two galleries makes it possible not only to extend the amount of works but also the sizes which will be accepted. To give this productive change a name, we decided to redefine the exhibition as “MiniMaxi Prints Berlin”.

By participating in this print exhibition, you are given the opportunity to exhibit your work in one of the two galleries (It will NOT be possible for artists to choose the gallery to be shown ). Also, it is the perfect opportunity to develop your network within graphic art connecting you to many other international artists.

For applying see application form below.

You can apply for both sections! But you can only apply for one section at the time!

Please DON’T mix the sizes in your application as you will NOT be accepted!

Section A “MINI”

  • All multiple printmaking techniques are welcome
  • Size of the print (including signature): 30 cm x 30 cm (max)
  • Size of paper: 40 cm x 40 cm (max)
  • Each artist can submit 6 prints max

Section B “MAXI”*

  • All multiple printmaking techniques are welcome
  • Size of the print (including signature): more than 60 x 80(min)
  • Size of the paper: more than 70cm x 90 cm(min)
  • Size of paper: 200 x 300 cm (max)
  • Each artist can submit 6 prints max

*Please be aware that our concept is not “the bigger the better”. The quality of a print is not defined by its size – the size is just one of many qualities that makes a good print. And a good print can either be small or big.

Techniques accepted:
We only accept multiples prints.
No monoprints or inkjet prints
Lithograph, Woodcut, Etching, Drypoint, Linocut, and similar graphics techniques

Only if you are accepted for the exhibition and have passed the 3 selection rounds and asked by our staff by mail to send us your work, then send us the prints in good condition and unframed to the address below and submit a ‘Work Description form’ on the back of the work and as a separate printed document.

Important note

There is no submission fee, but the artists are alone responsible for the packaging and shipping costs of the prints to and from the gallery. Please be aware that the gallery holds no responsibility for any damage or loss that may occur during transit or installation. We handle the prints with the best care possible.  We have not had any damages in 25 years’ time handling art pieces.
Once accepted, a minor exhibition fee is required of 38€ to be paid, to cover the costs for screening. Usually, there will be made flyers and a poster for the exhibition featuring each artist.

We need to have the works chosen to our disposition for the following 12 months.
(as we might implement them in the following exhibitions)

For sales, the galleries take their usual commission.

(Work  that has been sent unsolicited to us, we do not take responsibility for!)

When scrolling down you will find 2 separate application forms, one for Miniprint (Section A. max. size 40cm x 40cm) and Maxiprint (Section B. min. size 70cm x 90cm).

Please ensure that you apply in the right form based on the size of your work. If you would like to apply to both Mini and Maxi print, please ensure that you apply to both forms separately
