In 1998 in the Villa Löwenpalais in Grunewald, Berlin’s former Artists’ Colony, Jörg Peter Starke established the eponymous Foundation. Primarily young talented artists are supported in a wide-ranging sponsorship concept. This is intended to ensure that each artist develops an individual style, as well as coming into contact with other art forms in an intensive way.

The Foundation also provides many national and international contacts, for instance museums, galleries and other public institutions, but also representatives of the fields of culture, science, economy, sports and politics.

Fine arts, architecture, design, performance, music, composition, new media, literature (also available for playwrights)
