The exhibition These Are the Only Times You Have Knownpresents the work of 11 international artists who were awarded the Berlin Senate’s Visual Arts Grant in 2019. The range of artistic positions they represent reflects the diversity of artistic forms of expression in Berlin and includes the examination of different layers of time, hidden narratives, and issues of belonging and performativity. The search for meaning in the present is an element shared by all of the artistic works presented in These Are the Only Times You Have Known, whose spectrum ranges from paintings, photographs, prints, and video installations to virtual reality techniques. The title These Are the Only Times You Have Known underscores the contemporaneity of the positions assembled in the exhibition, while at the same time pointing to the individual artistic achievements, each of which formulates questions about the present, past, and future in its own way.
