The idea of the project space is currently connected to unprecedented notions of economical, political and structural possibilities: While the accumulated prize money of the Berlin Senate’s Project Space Award is nearing the one million Euro mark in its fourth year, formats like the Project Space Festival and other collaborations (e.g. with the Berlin Art Week or KW Institute for Contemporary Art) are providing the project spaces with prestigious public forums on a national and international scale. At the same time however, there may be signs that the very idea of the project space has become fragile. The publication ‘On the end of the project space. A draft for a possible new beginning.’ will be published on August 30, 2015 as Neue Berliner Räume’s contribution to the Project Space Festival 2015.
