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.

The works with which you apply need to be available for the time period of Mini Maxi prints exhibition.

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.
