Berlin gets busy - Your guide to Berlin Art Week!

Bringing it back to Berlin – the home turf of Exhibitionary – is the seventh Berlin Art Week from 26–30 September! Plotted around Berlin are two art fairs, 15 museums and institutions, two art associations, one theatre, eleven private collections and 20 project spaces, expecting your pretty feet on their freshly mopped floors. And mate, it’s an ambitious program!

The seven-year itch didn’t halt for Berlin Art Week, with it facing troubles of location, financing and scheduling this year, but in the end, they made it work (yaaay!) and are now back stronger than ever. Taking center stage, of course, are the two art fairs, art berlin & Positions. This year, both present their galleries in the hangars of the former Tempelhof Airport.

Since this is a home game for us, it’s needless to say that we’ve got you covered with all the information you need for immersing yourself into Berlin Art Week not only with all the exhibitions but also many performances, symposiums, screenings, talks and – you’ve guessed it – some of the hottest parties. Just enable push notifications in our app, and you’re all set.

Let’s kick it off with the much anticipated exhibition (and undoubtedly one of the highlights) of Julian Charrière at Berlinische Galerie opening on Wednesday. This year’s GASAG prize winner has produced a haunting body of work that resonates with the disconnectedness of our world. The artist created a spatial installation that takes you underwater into the Pacific Ocean. Charrière and his colleague Nadim Samman set off on an expedition to Bikini Atoll, where the U.S. tested thermonuclear weapons seventy years ago, and rendered the area entirely uninhabitable for human life, producing poetic reportages on the consequences of atomic power and radioactivity. The exhibition “As We Used to Float” is a physical, immersive experience that reveals the effects of those atomic tests, symbolizing the interaction between anthropogenic and natural transformations. It functions as an intersection of philosophy, science, and the way time acts to create transformation. If you are into this: on Wednesday night there’s a video performance, and record release party of Charrière and Inland titled An Invitation to Disappear at the notorious Berghain (11 pm till probably very late).

On our way from Berlinische Galerie to Hamburger Bahnhof, we stop over at Julia Stoschek Collection. Dedicated to artists’ moving image works, KW Production Series is a new commissioning project, organized in collaboration with the JSC and Outset Germany_Switzerland. For Berlin Art Week the Production Series showcases Jamie Crewe und Beatrice Gibson.

Jamie Crewe video installation Pastoral Drama comprises of two parallel videos that play simultaneously. Within them, Crew reflects upon the evolution of narratives that use allegory and animation to think about progress. Through chronological filming of intricate drawings in ink, pencil, speckled clay, and encrusted plasticine, Crewe explores (inter-)personal change and collective political time. Beatrice Gibson also explores ideas around gender, poetry, and disobedience. She developed her 16mm film I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Deadwith American poets CA Conrad and Eileen Myles. Using material that was shot on the eve of the 45th presidential inauguration in January 2017, Gibson distills and blends moments of perilous public authority with more intimate scenes and tender portraits, using poetry as a means to reckon with the present.

Next stop: Unter den Linden. Long awaited and now actually happening is the opening of the new institution of what replaced Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle: PalaisPopulaire. With a fancy location (next to the opera and vis-a-vis of Humboldt University), the new art hotspot in the old Prinzessinnenpalais has tripled its exhibition area in size. The rooms were redesigned by Kuehn & Malvezzi Architects. With state-of-the-art technology added and a garden that won’t just host sculptures but also sports enthusiasts, the PalaisPopulaire is set to cater to a mixture of art, culture and sports activities. With the opening exhibition “The World on Paper,” the Deutsche Bank Collection presents itself from a new perspective, with around 300 highlights and new discoveries, many of which have not been shown to the public thus far. Exploring the fascination of paper and its possibilities in the digital era, and offering insight into the diversity, history, and international orientation of the Deutsche Bank Collection, the show will be an overview of art after 1945, with artist such as Isa GenzkenAnish KapoorMaria LassnigMichel MajerusBruce NaumanImran QureshiArnulf RainerDaniel RichterKarin Sander to name but a few.

Now we head over to Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The Situationist International (S.I.), an international organization of social revolutionaries made up of avant-garde artists, intellectuals and political theorists first projected a “revolutionary front in culture” and then shifted to the political field. Employing ludic methods, the movement offered a fundamental critique of the spectacle of a consumerist society. The exhibition at HKW thematizes the break away from art in 1962 and follows the activities of the S.I. leading up to and including the uprising in France in May 1968. In an age in which the principles of the market economy are increasingly permeating all areas of life, “The Most Dangerous Game” instigates a new envisioning of the years in which the S.I. articulated its critique. The show features works by Guy DebordIsidore IsouJacqueline de JongAsger JornPiero Simondo amongst others.

Haven’t seen enough? Follow us to Neuer Berliner Kunstverein the exhibition project “A 37 90 89 – The Invention of the Neo-Avant-Garde” is dedicated to the genesis of art practices critical of institutions since the 1960s based on the example of the project space A 37 90 89, founded in Antwerp in 1969. The exhibition is accompanied by a film program in cooperation with Arsenal – Institute for Film and Video Art and a discussion series. Besides that, there will be a small but mighty show by the grand dame of Romanian concept art Geta Brătescu who sadly passed away last week, as well as a facade project by Ceal Floyer.

Last stop on Wednesday is the opening of Agnieszka Polska‘s exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof. About a year ago, Polska received the ninth Preis der Nationalgalerie. The prize, which consists of a solo show, is awarded every two years to an artist under the age of 40 who lives and works in the German capital. So this year, Polska will present a new multi-channel video installation in a solo show titled “The Demon’s Brain.” In the Historic Hall at Hamburger Bahnhof, Polska combines animation and filmed sequences with encrypted adaptations of cultural artifacts. Her visually powerful explorations of lost times turn to how the past is fictionalized and re-worked. Often poetically constructed and with unsettling undertones of the ambiguity of our time, the artist‘s visually-rich universe addresses our role and responsibility within the state of the world today.

On Thursday it’s all about the fairs. We cannot wait to see both art berlin and Positions closer to each other than ever. In year two after the friendly takeover by Koelnmesse, art berlin, as well as Positions, are temporarily relocating. Occupying Hangar 5 and 6 (art berlin) and Hangar 4 (Positions) of the former Tempelhof Airport, it was never easier and more convenient for visitors to go to both fairs. art berlin hosts around 120 galleries from 21 countries with an unsurprisingly strong emphasis on Berlin galleries, showcasing a comprehensive overview of contemporary positions, as well as works of classic modernism plus some exciting talks on Saturday and Sunday. At Positions, booths of another 74 galleries, mostly from Germany, are awaiting you.

Friday night’s the night for gallery openings. Needless to say that Potsdamer Strasse is the art autobahn countless visitors will be frequenting. Don’t forget to see Simon Fujiwara’s amazing large-scale installation at Esther Schipper, which features an immersive simulator experience which is based on the artist’s interest in the accelerated dynamics of today’s production and consumption of images. Head over to Berlin’s Project-Space-Darling PS120 to see the third and final iteration of “The Way Things Run” with an amazing artist list mixing more established positions from Fischli & Weiss over Alicja Kwade to Katharina Sieverding to some younger interesting artists like Isabella FürnkäsMariana Hahn and Gina Proenza. On your way, pop by Helga Maria Klosterfelde to see Dan Peterman’s Love Podium (travel version), which will serve as a platform for some events, like Annika Kahrs’ performance This Is A Love Song on Friday night. From PS120 it is only a short walk to Darren Bader at Sociéte. Definitely worth seeing is also “True Stories” at Galerie Max Hetzler, a show about the 80s curated by veteran Peter Pakesch and “The Vitalist Economy of Painting” at Galerie Neu, which was curated by Isabelle Graw, the intellectual force of nature behind Texte zur Kunst.

Another novelty this year, are the various interventions in public space with which Berlin Art Week is literally taken to the streets: The “New Infinity” series of Berliner Festspiele / Immersion builds a mobile planetarium at Mariannenplatz, artist Mischa Kuball expands his installation res·o·nant from Berlin’s Jewish Museum to the city space, and “Posters are made political” at Underground station Alexanderplatz, platform U5.

One last recommendation before we leave you to the plethora of exciting exhibitions: Adrian Piper’s show at Akademie der Künste at Pariser Platz which is on view in conjunction with this year's awarding of the Käthe Kollwitz Prize. Questioning the political conditions for the production process of art, its reception and significance (both now and in the past), as well as addressing subjects such as gender and race, xenophobia and the nature of the self, the American artist and analytic philosopher expands the spectrum of first-generation conceptual art and minimalism. Her way of thinking and working brings forth an unusual societal, economic, psychological and spiritual potential of the visual arts in her research and projects.

So, in short, it’s going to be an exciting week in Berlin: Wednesday’s the day for the institutional openings, Thursday is fair day, and Friday is the night of the galleries. Saturday and Sunday are (in case you are either quickly detoxed or still sober) for shifting down a gear, taking a second look at the fairs and maybe a little less rushed and a more relaxed visit to the exhibitions. If you want to be up to date with everything you could potentially miss out on, then you already know the drill: You make sure notifications are enabled in Exhibitionary, and we make sure you won’t miss a thing.

LA (Un)confidential – Exhibitionary goes West!
About a hundred years ago, movie executives discovered California’s magic sunlight, relative absence of labor regulations and pleasant ocean views: Los Angeles was picked as the location of choice to shoot pictures. Ever since, a steady stream of hopeful, driven and adventurous people has been fuelling the city of Angels, transforming it into a fertile ground for cultural initiatives. Hence, it seems only logical for Exhibitionary to chose LA as its third US and eleventh altogether location! From now on, you can check out, select, and visit the city’s most thrilling exhibitions thanks to our app.

Lots of glamour, lots of art and lots of fun. Here comes Art Basel Miami Beach!
The conclusion of this year's busy schedule will have Miami’s white beaches and refrigerated fair halls as a setting; but this time, the program of and surrounding the Donatella Versace of fairs seems at least as busy as the rest of the year: museum (re)openings, satellites, parties and endless Uber drives will keep the glitterati more occupied than ever.

Frieze Week is here – with some radical feminism, emerging talents and new spaces!
This week London celebrates the 15th edition of Frieze, the capital’s prime art fair and a must-go station on the art world’s calendar. As it so often is the case with an event of such magnitude, the wave it triggers makes many others want to ride it; consequently, a myriad of great shows, openings and satellite fairs are set to take place concurrently.

We've just released some amazing new features!
Now you’re able to publish your Picks and share them with others. It's easy to follow your friends and other interesting editors and see which shows they recommend.

Knock Knock – It’s Berlin Art Week!
It’s that time of the year: Summer has violently vanished and been replaced by depressing temperatures, the semi-licit outdoor rave program is put on hold and Berlin Art Week is here again.

Talking Art and Artsy Talks – Good to Talk
Good to Talk, a 46-hour long marathon of talks, lectures, and panel discussions, rounded off by the occasional live performance and musical intermezzo, aims to break open the sometimes crusted cocoon in which the art world unfolds and therefore produce fresh food for the minds of audience and participants alike.

Great Art, Good Beer, and a Juicy Rivalry – DC Open in Düsseldorf & Cologne
Düsseldorf and Cologne, historically two of Germany and Europe’s most relevant spots regarding postwar culture. We’re glad to announce that we’ve partnered with DC Open and on this occasion, we are launching Düsseldorf in our app. We will consequently provide you with some insight into the highlights taking place during these three days.

Five Shows in June
These are the last shows for many galleries before they take a much needed holiday. All too often they just present a group show of whatever inventory is available from their artists (that didn't sell at the fairs). We searched for exhibitions that raise well above the expected, and we’re delighted to see some galleries mounting some of their finest of the year.

Basel is more than a symphony. It's an entire opera!
Everyone wants to look fresh when they step off the plane in Basel, but just as important as looking good is what you go to see and where you’re seen. One of the strongest ways for collectors, new and experienced, to show dedication and commitment is to show up in person to support new presentations of artists they acquire. In Basel, more than anywhere else, it is a non-stop meteoric shower of events and openings to attend.

Zürich is more than just an overture. It's a symphony!
As the art world nearly fills up its dance card with Documenta 14 and Skulptur Projekte Münster, we must have one last waltz before Basel at Zürich’s Contemporary Art Weekend! Some say this is just an ‘overture to Art Basel,’ but we say it is so much more.

Skulptur Projekte Münster made easy
Wondering how to navigate Münster? The city transforms itself every ten years with Skulptur Projekte Münster into a mecca for the art world. We have mapped it all for you so download Exhibitionary and you don’t have to spend precious little time in this scenic city lost.

We show you more in Berlin than just Gallery Weekend!
Gallery Weekend is an event like no other. Unlike the artificial situation in a trade fair or on the auction chopping block where meaning and context are emptied out. Collectors from all over the world come to see art in its primary public source, to buy early, for galleries to step up to the plate and for artists to give it their best. Our home turf and source of pride is Berlin and we hope here to provide a few entry points in this.

Are you ready for the Cologne whirlwind?
The history of post-war Cologne is a history of the emergence of contemporary art itself. Today the city still is home to major collectors (among other, Reiner Speck and Benedikt Taschen) who support established and emerging galleries. Here shows of the absolute highest caliber take place. The best way to discover which works become meaningful to you over time is to go out and see them in person.

#New York
Five Shows in April
Here we try to give a mode of entry for first time collectors but also insight for those seasoned in the art world. This is a roundup of five shows that share a depth of lasting power, they are not simply mass-market appeal even if some are very popular.

Athens: The unsolved mysteries of Documenta 14
Everyone has heard something about the first ever Athen’s chapter of Documenta (arguably the biggest thing happening in art right now). With only days before the inauguration, there is little clarity of what to expect, and the artist list is the biggest mystery. We provide an overview of the complicated themes and why the whole art world is talking about this quinquennial.

Five Shows in March

#New York
The Armory is bolder than Frieze Week. We tell you what not to miss!
Long before it became The Armory Show, it was the highly experimental perversely satirical Gramercy International Art Fair, a playing ground for a new generation of radical artists and gallerists. It took place inside the hotel of the same name and was the meeting ground for the downtown New York art scene.

All about ARCO and what to see in Madrid
It’s late February which means we are off to Madrid, already we have spent all month practicing Spanish. What is great about going to Madrid is being able to see artists who are underrepresented in Western Europe and the US (because they are often overlooked in the international scene).

The Beginning of the End: A Look Ahead to 2017
We are more positive about the coming year than the title of this post might suggest, even if we do live in fraught times. We share the sentiments of Jerry Saltz who said when asked about 2017 and the future of galleries:

#New York
The End of the Beginning: A Look Back at 2016
The end of the year gives space and time for reflection. 2016 was incredible for us. We launched our app Exhibitionary during the hot days of summer, which – now in winter – seems so far away. Within a few months, Exhibitionary grew into a global art guide with curatorial picks in major art centers around the world.

Forget the fairs! Seven things you shouldn't miss in Miami
Miami is the best place to see the diversity of Latin American art because of its proximity to the region. Many of the great private collections in Miami focus on art outside the hegemonic cannon. It is not only the rich visual arts but also the culture and food of the region that we immerse ourselves in.

Must-see guide for Art Basel Miami and the top parties you probably won't get into
As always, we are determined to find hope, sun, and LSD (love, stimulants, vitamin D) in Miami. Last year, postdiluvian floods reminded us that nature is bigger than even Gavin Brown’s beach party. This year, Zika put a cramp in Galerie Perrotin’s party and canceled Jack Shainman’s outdoor blast – but fear not, the show must go on and the parties rage on.

Top Six Shows in Turin
We are on a pilgrimage to Turin! Part of what makes the treasured art institutions in the city so exciting to see is the beautiful town that inspires them and the jaw-dropping post-Renaissance buildings they are housed in. Here are our top six shows that are must-sees.

Top ten shows to see in Paris during FIAC
There is no place like Paris; it is the right city for art. This year many galleries chose FIAC over Frieze. One major factor putting Paris back on the map is the evolution of FIAC under the Director Jennifer Flay. So here are our top 10 museum quality exhibitions to see in Paris now.

London Calling for Frieze Frenzy
London, one of the world’s most important art cities comes alive for Frieze, one of the world’s most important art fairs. The fair is about frenzied buying, except Londoners have a unique kind of refined connoisseurship that is anything but fanatic. Here are ten exhibitions we won’t miss in London and we hope you won’t miss either.

Berlin Art Week for Aficionados
The art world shuts down in August, a time to cross the blurry boundary between professional (art) life into personal (art) life. We jump out of our bathing suit directly back to work in the newest fall fashion for the big openings of jam-packed September.

Berlin's Project Space Festival Breaks the White Cube
Project Space Festival Berlin is an annual opportunity to step out of the white cube routine and experience the exciting fringes of the local scene. The strength of Project Space Festival is twofold, in its diversity and ephemerality. We’ve gone through it with a fine-comb to call out five of the finest.

Gstaad my Love – A Summer Art Affair
The summer season of art is so quiet that in order to find a great show you have to make a great pilgrimage. We are heading off to Gstaad, one of the most remote art locations, for Project 1048 which is a little bit of everything, outdoor exhibition, boundary-defying collaboration and non-profit project.

Liverpool on Strike for the Future
Facing the aftershocks of post-Brexit, it is urgent to go to the Liverpool Biennial. Under director Sally Tallant the Biennial takes over the city in the form of a free festival, a Midsummer night’s voyage through six episodes. Profound questions about our past, present, and future remain without easy answers in this political moment.

#New York
New York Warm Up
No sleep till Brooklyn – NYC celebrates its week of summer openings. What better way to avoid the grotesque hot summer days than a pilgrimage through pristine well air-conditioned galleries in the art world’s capital?! Exactly, none.

Düsseldorf Back on the Map
In constant search of the next big celebration; we are heading for the infamous Rhineland. Historically thought of as the 80's center of the German art-world, it is now putting itself back on the map. Düsseldorf is the place to be with a new private museum, a new hip gallery, and commemorative performances!

Last Look at Art Basel
In the congested summer schedule of the touring art world, Art Basel is an event sometimes preferably ignored but never forgotten. Art Basel was overwhelming and exhausting. At times it was underwhelming, at times, it blew us away.

Manifesta Tips
Just as the hangover is fading from (the celebrations of) the 9th Berlin Biennale, Manifesta 11 begins. Zurich, as everyone knows, is all about the money. Christian Jankowski hit it right on the head when he chose “What People Do For Money,” as the theme this year for Manifesta.
