Information for artists seeking representation (click here to download a PDF)

 

If you are an artist seeking representation by LiTE-HAUS to exhibit your art or photography, this document provides information. “Representation” is different from “space rental”. If you prefer to rent space and handle your own exhibition, you can inquire via the application under the SPACE menu. Please also review the calendar to see what dates may be available for your exhibition.

 

LiTE-HAUS is a  non-profit gallery located in Neukölln. The legal entity is Ad Finem gGmbH based in Berlin, Germany. It is owned by New York artist and entrepreneur Debbie Davies. More information about our team can be found under the ABOUT menu above.

 

We offer non-exclusive representation to international artists for solo or group exhibitions. You must submit your application by clicking on SUBMISSIONS. Our curators will review your application and your website and contact you if your work fits in with the our mission. Please first read this important information about our mission.

If you are selected for representation, your exhibition will be promoted on our website, printed matter such as flyers and posters, social media, and press releases distributed to Germany media outlets. 

 

LiTE-HAUS staff will assist you in the installation and dismantling of your exhibition, and one of our team will be available during gallery hours to greet visitors and provide information about you and your artwork. Artists are expected to gallery-sit some days.

 

We will host a Vernissage (Opening Reception) and sometimes a Finissage (Closing Reception) at the gallery. Refreshments including alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be served. These events are open to the public. 

 

Since we are a non-profit organization, we rely on grants, donations, and sales of art. We are not a commercial gallery, but our goal is to nurture artists in their careers and work diligently to sell art. LiTE-HAUS commission is 40% of any sales of your work. This is negotiable if you pay a higher administrative fee (see standard fees below).

 

Below are artists responsibilities:

 

Delivery and handling of art to the gallery, the cost of delivery and return of art, customs expenses, and packaging and pick-up of unsold art the day after the exhibition ends. 

 

Cost of designing and printing postcards. Typically the cost is around €45 for printing 1000 postcards. Design fee is a flat €50.

 

Artists are charged a nominal administrative fee to help cover costs. A 19%VAT is collected in addition to the fee. This fee is in addition to the 40% commission mentioned above. However, both the fee and commission is negotiable depending on dates of exhibition, anticipated sales, and possible outside funding.
