The artists

The artists of the NordArt

More than 3000 applications by artists from 105 countries were received this year.
We would like to thank all artists.

NordArt is celebrating an anniversary this year: For the 20th time, the exhibition will be presenting paintings and sculptures, photographs and installations by 200 selected artists from all over the world.

This year’s Country Focus is on the Czech Republic. Patron of the Czech Pavilion will be the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Germany, His Excellency Mr. Tomáš Jan Podivínský.

Simultaneously, Czech born sculptor Professor Jan Koblasa (1932-2017) will be taking center stage as the Focus Artist. NordArt thus not only takes a bow to this great artistic personality - it also wishes to honour the man who has provided NordArt with important impulses and support from its very beginnings.

The long-standing cooperation with the Chinese Embassy in Berlin and the cultural institutions in China, in addition to close contacts with the Chinese art scene, have already led to many spectacular presentations at NordArt in past years. Contemporary art from China will again receive special attention in 2018.

Many of our previous awardees will be represented this year as well: the winners of both the Public Choice Award and the NordArt Prize which is sponsored by Hans-Julius and Johanna Ahlmann.
