»What’s up today?«, we ask a number of prominent figures from the city’s culture scene about their Berlin Art Week plans. Linus Lütcke of Spoiler Aktionsraum shares what he’s up to on Thu 16 SEP.

In the evening I’ll head to HAU1—Hebbel am Ufer for Ligia Lewis’s ›Still Not still‹ (also showing Friday and Saturday). The choreographed performance explores the negation of the histories of Black and non-white people.

Another one to catch is the exhibition ›K60‹ at Wilhelm Hallen: oversized inflatable sculptures by Sylvie Fleury in the big hall along with group exhibitions featuring a number of emerging positions (Berlin Masters 2021).

Also interesting from an art-historical perspective is the retrospective of performance artist Tomas Schmit at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), a presentation focusing on new artistic approaches to the 1960s Fluxus movement. Contemporary artists have come up with participatory formats that take up Schmit’s (so far) lesser-known early work from today’s perspective. n.b.k. will also be installing a work by Rosemarie Trockel on the long-abandoned billboard at the intersection of Friedrichstraße and Torstraße.

Everyone knows you see the best art at project spaces. Creamcake is showing a video work by Alice Z Jones and Dis Fig as part of its four-part video programme ›Pop Psychology‹ at c/o Kunstpunkt in Berlin-Mitte and online. It’s about the appreciation of pop in all its facets. Meanwhile, Spoiler Aktionsraum presents ›FUTURE PAST PERFECT‹, a group exhibition with site-specific works by ten artists. It’ll be packed! That starts at 7pm.
