GROSSES TREFFEN / STORMÖTE / SUURI KOKOUS / STORT MØTE / LISTASTEFNA / STORMØDE is a one day network event that offers the opportunity for Finnish, Swedish, Icelandic, Norwegian, Greenlandic, Faroese and Danish visual artists (artists, performers, sound artists as well as designers and architects working within the visual arts field) to do portfolio presentations and get acquainted with key agents of the Berlin’s art scene according to their specific interests. This year participating artists will also be able to meet curators from Frankfurt. The Nordic Embassies in Berlin will host the event where around 60 artists will be given the chance to meet curators representing a selection of vibrant art institutions.

A jury will preselect the participating artists for GROSSES TREFFEN and the database based on their submitted portfolios.


In 2015 we launch a new online research database with Nordic artists profiles by GROSSES TREFFEN applicants. Due to the frequent quest of a mapping of both younger and established segments of Nordic artists, we have created this database. The content of the database is made possible thanks to all the artists agreeing to deliver the documentation of their work. The project including the new database is made possible with support from Cultural Contact Point Nord and all the Nordic Embassies in Berlin.

The database consists of submitted portfolios to GROSSES TREFFEN. An international jury selects the portfolios that are made public on this website. Furthermore as the application procedure from 2015 onwards will be electronic, applicants will automatically be asked to create a profile that can be selected for the database as well. This way many Nordic artists will have the chance to present their works to a wide international and professional audience.

Organized by the Nordic Embassies. Concept and artistic direction by Solvej Helweg Ovesen.
