Art in Berlin: Berlin Art Week


To reawaken us all from our summerly dizziness (what!? which summer?!), some smart people (namely abc, Preview and most of Berlin’s major art institutes) invented a new event in the Berlin art calendar, called Berlin Art Week, starting next Monday. It basically means you can and should see over twenty exhibitions and many more events in one week for a very fair ticket price of 28 euros.
This is just an extract of favorits of what you can see for this little money:

Arno Brandlhuber – Archipel at n.b.k. — being very known for his architectural works and his comments on Berlin’s contemporary urban development, this is Brandlhuber’s first “artistic” solo show and thus not to be missed.

Agathe Fleury at n.b.k. — Fleury works with techniques that are very old and often also forgotten like the cyanotype (blueprint) of which a series will be on view next to sculptures by the French Berlin based artist.

Michael Sailstorfer – Forst at Berlinische Galerie — the genre of sculpture is extended and actually redefined in this artist’s work that is poetic and odd at the same time. This is his first major solo exhibition.

Wael Shawky – Al Araba Al Madfuna at KW Berlinwe’ve already told you about that here.

Between Walls and Windows at HKW — the building housing HKW is iconic in Berlin’s architectural landscape and this icon will open itself up to interactions with international artists, tracing the meaning and importance of politics and philosophy in architecture.

    I’d like to see the film. I don’t live in Berlin. Please update us if the film is made available for paid download eventually. Thanks.

    thanks to “Stil in Berlin” I won a ticket and so I got the chance to watch this interesting documentary. I didn’t know Richard Deacon before, therefore I remained impressed by his work, that I would define in one word genuine. Moreover I totally agree with what is stated in the article as regards the documentary itself. The director did a good job in presenting the artist through his own world, using the right timing and showing the genesis of a work of art.

    so thank you again!
