This is a collective auction platform created to help artists found in a precarious situation due to the global pandemic.
The cultural scene is especially vulnerable to the pandemic. Artists, critics, gallerists, curators, and other art workers relly heavily on real-life interactions, made impossible due to closedowns and social distancing.
We are looking for collective solutions, ARTIST STOP BEING POOR has decided to set up a platform and offer their artworks for auction directly to the audience.
Our goal is to establish a direct link between artists and art lovers willing to support the arts in this time of need.
Let’s walk through these tough times together, to come out stronger on the other side.
How does it work?
On a weekly base, we will select a group of artists to offer a limited edition print of their artwork that will go up for auction for a week. Art lovers will be able to place their bid over the weekend, with bidding closing Sunday at midnight, Berlin Time.
The prints are produced in Berlin, in the museum-quality paper, being shipped with an authenticity certificate for the print on the week following the auction.
Next auction ends July 5th.
