paperpositions berlin - 19.-22. August 2021


After what feels like an eternal break - without exhibitions or art fairs - I am now looking forward to a very special event in the art world in August when it comes to works on paper.

In its fifth edition, paper positions berlin presents 49 international exhibitors from August 19-22, 2021 with outstanding positions in contemporary and modern art on the subject of drawing and the medium of paper.

In the Deutsche Telekom office in the capital, centrally located on Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin-Mitte, paper positions berlin will focus on this special genre within art.
As already very successful last year, the Galerie Martin Mertens, which deals with the subject of drawing and the medium of paper with all its specific characteristics, its fragility and its dedicates tremendous versatility to present some new work of mine. Above all, new overpaintings such as a nautical chart and postcards as well as works from the Achim series will be on display.

In terms of its trade fair concept, which is tailored to the mostly sensitive exhibits, without classic booths, paper positions berlin deliberately relies on a salon-like situation. The limited number of exhibitors also underlines the character of a large themed exhibition. The spatial design offers visitors both an open overview and the opportunity to approach individual artistic works directly and to perceive them in mutual dialogue.

Come over! I am looking forward to your visit to the booth of Galerie Martin Mertens!
We are also happy to meet there during opening hours - just send me an email and I'll be there.
