The basic idea of SWEAT SHOP is to extrapolate the mutuality of art and money, while commenting on the means of capitalist production in a globalized world, and reflecting on the artistic traditions in the means and ends of production in the eastern and the western philosophy.

For two days during the Gallery Weekend in Berlin, a group of 16 contemporary artists of different stylistic backgrounds and origins will work in in Berlin-Kreuzberg's free art space SCHAU FENSTER under “sweat shop conditions”. During their five hour shift, all an artist is given is a chair, a table, and their chosen working equipment. Each one of them inhabiting the space of round about 4 x 4 meters.

The Formats

We offer our artists four different formats to work on:

  1. Paper DIN A4 (21.0 x 29.7 cm): Sketch Paper Matt 140 g/qm | Base Price 70€
  2. Paper DIN A3 (29.7 x 42.0 cm): Sketch Paper Matt 140 g/qm | Base Price 90€
  3. Canvas (40 x 50 cm): Blended Fabric| Base Price 120€
  4. Canvas (50 x 60 cm): Blended Fabric| Base Price 140€

You will only find those formats in the selection menu that the artist has chosen to work with.

The Prices

The number of units already sold by the artist and the format you choose determine the price for your purchase.

The format defines the base price, e.g. our Paper DIN A4 (21.0 x 29.7 cm) format has a base price of 70€. If you are the first to book this artist and choose this format the price of your format will remain 70€ as the factor for the first sale is 1.0:

base price x factor = unit price
70€ x 1.0 = 70€

However, with each unit the artist has sold, the price factor increases by 0.15. Let's say the artist has already sold three units and you book the fourth. Your factor will be 1.45:

base price x factor = unit price
70€ x 1.45 = 101,50€

You can choose between four formats (given the artist offers all formats):
  1. Paper DIN A4 (21.0 x 29.7 cm): Base Price 70€
  2. Paper DIN A3 (29.7 x 42.0 cm): Base Price 90€
  3. Canvas (40 x 50 cm): Base Price 120€
  4. Canvas (50 x 60 cm): Base Price 140€
