Global research and communications, focused on art, architecture, technology and society.


Send/Receive is a Berlin-based public relations office with deep experience in the worlds of contemporary art, architecture, design, media and technology. Through insightful research and active yet nuanced communication, we connect our clients to a broader social environment, and help articulate their role and relevance both within and beyond their professional contexts.


Media consumption is taking place within increasingly isolated feedback loops. Our ambition is to enable greater communication (and ultimately understanding) between people, communities and cultures – especially those that do not typically speak with one another. By linking different disciplines and geographies, we feed the exchange of knowledge and dialogue in global society.


Our services include written and visual communications, profile and story development, media relations, audience research and analysis, public engagement strategy and execution, trend monitoring and research, social media campaigns, graphic design, art direction and branding.
