It’s that time of spring again and this time it’s an anniversary – Gallery Weekend is turning 10 years already! Who would’ve thought… There’ll be plenty of amazing gallery shows, opening, performances and events. But where to go first!?!?
However, most of the mega-shows at the big galleries will be on view for a couple of weeks, and they’re always a bit too crowded during Gallery Weekend, so you won’t see much of the actual works anyway.
We suggest you go for more fun activities and discover the lesser known spots of the Berlin art scene in the coming days. We asked Berlin’s art connoisseurs extraordinaire – Niche Berlin – to let us know which galleries and performance we’d better not miss.
In case you want to know more about this city’s artists, art spaces and studios, we seriously recommend you book a tour with Niche Berlin!
A weekend full of art is lying behind us, but of course all the exhibitions are on display for much longer. I photographed the weekend for Vogue Germany, take a look at the official picture selection on their website and my own outtakes here.
We’re restarting the season of activity (versus winter) with a weekend full of art. Gallery Weekend is coming up, the annual gallery feast where every art-related location and project is opening its doors for the interested audiences. But there’s only so much one can see and so we’ll all need a little guidance. I asked Caro Würfel, art writer and dear friend, to present me her personal favorites that she’s looking forward to the most.
Niche Berlin organizes tailor-made private art and architecture tours, bringing you to the most inspiring project spaces, galleries and museums in town. And not only are they in the know on the up-and-coming scene, but would never miss the 8th edition of Gallery Weekend hosted by the most notorious or notable galleries in the city and considered one of the hottest art events in Germany – or at least in Berlin. Of course you can spend your weekend squeezing in with hordes of people at the major galleries – we’ll be there, too. But there are many other fun things happening this week that ought not to be missed – take a look which exhibitions we’re most curious about…
