Informations about auction and art sale

The aim of the PArt is to help artists to help themselves and thus to create a sustainable set of instruments. Therefore we would like to support you in making your works accessible to collectors despite the lack of fairs and exhibition opportunities. With the digital exhibition, the Artists’ Emergency Aid Fund and the auction, we offer you three possibilities from which you can choose the appropriate measures.


  1. Digital exhibition

The digital exhibition offers you the opportunity to make your works accessible to an international audience of collectors and art lovers on the PArt Platform from June 15th to July 1st 2020 and to sell the works there.

The only criteria for participation are: a degree from an art school or equivalent qualification, a first solo exhibition in an institution, and a first catalogue publication. The works you wish to exhibit do not have to meet any minimum price. Application deadline is June 15th.

If your works are sold, 60% of the selling price will go to you.  If you are represented by a gallery, they will receive 20% of the sales price. Of this amount, we kindly ask for a voluntary donation of 25% to the PArt emergency aid fund. A further 20% of the sales price will be used to finance this platform and from this also to the fund. This leaves you, the artist with 60% of the proceeds.


  1. Artist Emergency Aid Fund

You can apply for the artists’ emergency aid fund. A jury decides on the allocation of funds. The fund is fed by the auction, by proportional sales proceeds and by private donors.


  1. Auction

We cordially invite you to submit your work for the auction – because the auction is the heart of the PArt. You receive 50% of the net hammer price as submitting artist, the other 50% go to the PArt Emergency Aid Fund, from which you can benefit too. The auction is conducted by our partner, the renowned auction house VAN HAM. Application deadline is June 1st.

You have the possibility to propose up to 3 works or sets of works for the auction. If these are selected by the jury, you can send the works in a second step to the auction house: VAN HAM, PArt Benefiz Auktion, Vorgebirgsstraße 18, 50389 Wessling until June 1st 2020 or deliver them personally to the Spiegelberger Stiftung, Großer Burstah 36-38, 20457 Hamburg until June 1st, 2020 by electronic appointment via

The work should have an estimated price starting at 5,000 euros.
