Berlin Art Week is taking place now through September 13, bringing together a program of exhibitions, interventions in public spaces, performances, and award ceremonies. This year’s event explores current themes in contemporary art and enables visitors and online viewers alike to discover the cultural diversity of Berlin.
This week, many partner institutions moved their offerings outdoors—a new temporary sculpture by VALIE EXPORT is in front of PalaisPopulaire and HAU Hebbel am Ufer is showing a performance by Gintersdorfer/Klaßen in front of HAU2. Visitors will also find a cinema experiment projected against the façade of Haus der Statistik by the Project Space bi’bak.
Alongside art fairs Positions Berlin and paper.positions, Berlin Art Week features the second edition of Messe in St, Agnes, on view at König Galerie. Another highlight is Studio Berlin opening its doors at the Berlin club Berghain, in collaboration with the Boros Foundation. The project features work by more than 100 Berlin-based artists, such as Olafur Eliasson, Wolfgang Tillmans, Julian Charriére, and Isa Genzken. 13 private collections are also offering exclusive insights into their holdings—including Haubrok Foundation with “during the exhibition” and Fluentum, with Christian Jankowski’s “Sender and Receiver.”
New digital formats for Berlin Art Week include an Online Journal with interviews, features, essays, and photo spreads that provide access to the content shown this year. Also available are a variety of tours of the exhibition institutions and museums, galleries, private collections, project spaces, outdoor artistic interventions, and additional sites in various parts of the city.
