Berlin Open Studio (BOS) is a contemporary art event being held annually in the city of Berlin. Jointly organized for the first time in 2014 by artists, art theorists and art lovers living and working in Berlin, the event seeks to explore the city’s infrastructure on the level of artistic production: Studios throughout the city function as participating venues in which individual artists present their work, while simultaneously hosting that of other artists. This specific set-up is inspired by BOS’ sister organization Yogyakarta Open Studio in Indonesia and allows for a semi-presentational mode, in which artists define the terms of interaction. The pilot edition BOS 14 presented the work of international artists within the theme Hospitality. Next year’s BOS 15 edition Double Exposure included the participation of 26 artists + 7 theorists in individual studios in the Berlin city districts of Mitte, Schöneberg, Neukölln, Friedrichshain, Friedenau and Kreuzberg. BOS 16 Under Cover will run from 5 – 15 September 2016.
