The artist as an environmentalist in Berlin

The Climate Art Collection is a non-profit art foundation that serves as a curation platform for artists who address climate and nature themes in their work.

We welcome submissions from artists worldwide and embrace all art formats. Our objective is to bring climate change and its effects to the attention of a global a audience, including galleries, curators, collectors, and the general public.

Our organization continuously curates submitted artworks and the platform itself for external projects, exhibitions and campaigns in the international art scene, remotely and on site.

We are warmly welcoming digital submissions of your works and look forward to featuring your work.

The Climate Art Collection is a Berlin based association that publishes and curates climate and nature related artworks. Our aim is to make climate change and its associated impacts accessible and approachable to a global audience, as well as to preserve the beauty of our planet.

Contrary to traditional art collections acquiring & owning artworks exclusively, artists give us the rights to curate their artworks for the cause of climate awareness, whereas the artwork ownership & rights stay solely at the artist.

Climate change is here and it is real. We are constantly confronted with it, avoiding it is no longer possible. Extreme weather conditions, rising sea levels, forest fires, infertile soils, melting permafrost or ocean warming – there are countless other, no less dramatic examples. Let’s face it, in the long run we are not only destroying our own existence, but also that of millions of other living beings.

„If anything, art is… about morals, about our belief in humanity. Without that, there simply is no art.”

Art is a very powerful medium with which experiences, events and feelings can be expressed and visualized. We are convinced that art addressing climate topics does not yet receive enough attention. Therefore, we make it our task to use this medium in order to spread a collective message in the world: artists as environmentalist.

The initiative aims to be inclusive towards all kinds of artists and art formats, everyone is welcome to participate. We invite practitioners to contribute their own works through our digital submission channel. Selected artworks and the platform itself are constantly curated for external projects and campaigns.
