Berlin Art Week invites you to a new start to the cultural life in September. As in previous years, exhibition houses, private collections, project spaces and galleries will open their doors and present a programme of city-wide exhibitions and events. In this extraordinary year, the safety of all is paramount. Hybrid accesses and digital formats guarantee visitors a safe insight into Berlin art scene.
Four exhibition openings at Kindl—Centre for Contemporary Art
Kindl—Center for Contemporary Art is opening four exhibitions with the new artistic director Kathrin Becker: A group exhibition, a space-consuming audiovisual installation consisting of two sound sculptures by Nik Nowak, and a new production by artist Lerato Shadi, who makes the invisible or overlooked visible in her work and criticises purely Western notions of history. A film work by Israeli artist Ann Oren will be shown in the newly created ›M1 VideoSpace‹.
Artistic intervention ›We (all) are the people‹ by Hans Haacke
On the initiative of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) and in cooperation with, among others, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Akademie der Künste, Kindl—Center for Contemporary Art, and others, the artwork ›We (all) are the people‹ (2003/2017) by the conceptual artist Hans Haacke is being newly realized. Originally designed for an ideas competition in Leipzig, the work takes up the slogan of East German demonstrators from 1989/1990, with which Haacke emphasizes solidarity among all people, migrants, and refugees. The intervention will be shown open air in form of flags, banners, and posters on the facades and squares of partner institutions.
