About the Berlin Collective
Berlin Collective founded in 2009 by artist Nicole Cohen, as a platform for international cultural exchange to support U.S. Artists by giving them international exposure and to support U.S. artists based there.

Berlin Collective focuses on the connection between the U.S. and Berlin, Germany and beyond. We are an artist/ curator run collective based in NYC and Berlin. Our aim to provide exciting opportunities, knowledge and intellectual growth to art professionals by strengthening international exposure to their work, increase to U.S. artist’s who participate, and the development of American culture in the arts.

Based on the constant growth in population of artists in the U.S. and continuation of unclear business strategies and community opportunities for emerging, mid-career, and established artists to be in dialogue, the Berlin Collective offers a bridging and dialogue amongst art professionals. We host formal and informal events featuring artists. We hope to support new frontiers and alternative approaches for them to discover international possibilities within their professional careers. We believe in the growing global market, which will boost creative approaches and transform the arts at this time due to the evolving technological advancements and abilities to communicate equally internationally and locally.
