DESCRIPTION

International Forum for Visual Dialogues

Since its inception in 2000 in the former Royal Post Office (Postfuhramt) building, C/O Berlin, International Forum For Visual Dialogues has firmly established itself within the cultural landscape of Berlin-Mitte, near Museum Island and the government district.

Through the energies and commitment of its three founders – photographer Stephan Erfurt, designer Marc Naroska, and architect Ingo Pott – a singular institution in Germany has been created, presenting a cultural program of international stature and quality.

Program

To present photography in a lively and interdisciplinary manner and thereby to stimulate new discussions is the goal. At the same time, C/O Berlin promotes young talent, providing opportunities that can act as a catalyst towards a future career.

Finally, C/O Berlin invites children on voyages of visual discover through our visual culture. In this way, C/O Berlin brings together people of all ages and acts as a meeting place for the exchange of new ideas.

*

C/O Berlin is a laboratory. Here, the boundaries of the individual creative disciplines are explored, experimented with, and expanded. The creative, artistic life is opened up to visitors, above all through exhibitions of renowned photographers’ work as conceptualized and coordinated by C/O Berlin – international, diverse, contemporary.

C/O Berlin is driven by curiosity, passion, and professionalism. The name C/O Berlin stands for initiative and flexibility. As a postal abbreviation, C/O means “care of;” it indicates people on the move, not attached to a single locality, and active internationally. C/O Berlin embodies the additional connotation “taking care of,” in the sense of a personal commitment to fostering the arts.

C/O Berlin takes action where other institutions remain mired in discussion, and opens up new paths through the cultural.
