Transparency is of great importance to us. We handle donations, endowments and other forms of support transparently and responsibly. A lean structure, sustainable management, good cooperation in the committees, as well as our statutes and internal regulations, all help us to do this. The Berlin University of the Arts Foundation is registered with the German Federal Republic’s transparency register.

The foundation’s two bodies, the curatorial committee and the executive board, carry out the foundation’s work in terms of content and management .

The curatorial committee is made up of elected representatives from academic management levels at the Berlin University of the Arts: the presidium, colleges, central institutes and inter-university centres. In particular, the curatorial committee is responsible for how to use the foundation’s funds and monitors the activities of the executive board. It can appoint the jurors for the foundation’s prizes and set up advisory boards to provide expert advice on specific issues related to the foundation.  

The executive board consists of members of the university administration and the foundation’s management. The executive board’s role is to implement the guidelines of the curatorial committee. It legally represents the foundation and manages its assets.
