Professor Renée Green has been awarded the Berlin Prize by the American Academy in Berlin, a semester-long fellowship to be spent in Berlin.

The highly coveted Berlin Prize is awarded annually to scholars, writers, composers, and artists based in the United States who represent the highest standards of excellence in their fields. Fellows reside for the semester at the American Academy’s lakeside Hans Arnhold Center, in Berlin’s Wannsee district, and engage with the broader cultural and economic context of Berlin.

The American Academy in Berlin seeks to enrich transatlantic dialogue in the arts, humanities, and public policy through the development and communication of projects of the highest scholarly merit. Fellowships for artists, composers, and poets like the one received by Prof. Green are invitation-only competitions.

In addition to Renée Green’s engagement with her cohort of fellows and her public presentation at the American Academy, during her stay in Berlin, she will work on a variety of projects, among them:

  • finalizing the manuscript of the book documenting Pacing, her two-year project at the Carpenter Center for Visual Arts, Harvard;
  • participating in the group exhibition Hubert Fichte: Love and Ethnography at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt; Green is also a contributor to the catalog accompanying the exhibition with her essay, Hubert Fichte, Tour-ism, Negotiating in Contact Zones, and Contact;
  • a solo exhibition at Galerie Nagel/Draxler, Kabinett

Green’s fellowship will take place during the Fall 2019 semester.
