13. - 18. September 2016


Two art fairs, exhibition openings across town and private collections in Berlin

From 13–18 September 2016, Berlin will once again become the centre of the international art world. The fifth Berlin Art Week will attract collectors, gallerists, museum directors, and all those interested in art and culture to the German capital. Visitors will be directly drawn into Berlin’s art world and can choose from a wide variety of special offerings for this week, immersing themselves in Berlin’s sites of exhibiting and producing art, individual exhibitions by Halil Altindere, Anne Imhof, Andreas Greiner, Sven Drühl, Yvonne Roebor Gordon Parks, in one of the group shows at me Collectors Room or Deutsche Bank KunstHalle or the private collections of Julia Stoschek, Marc Barbey, Ivo Wessel or Erika Hoffmann.

Everything revolves around contemporary art and what moves, influences, and motivates artists today: from science and technology, social processes and political developments, to the worlds of advertising surrounding us. Last but not least, the week’s two art fairs offer a good opportunity to see all of this together in one place – and perhaps even to make a purchase.

The ninth abc art berlin contemporary will once again be focussing on individual artists and their positions. Founded by a group of Berlin galleries, abc invites local and international galleries to present their work in an exhibition architecture designed by the architectural firm Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge at Station Berlin. On 16 September, the program will be complemented by abc gallery night, where participating Berlin galleries open their spaces around town.

Berlin’s youngest art fair Positions Berlin – Art Fair has been presenting established galleries, newcomers and rediscoveries from the international art market since 2014. With fascinating concepts, interesting spaces, and new ideas, it offers visitors a framework to experience a wide range of international art during Berlin Art Week. 74 galleries from 13 countries present their most striking artistic positions at Postbahnhof Berlin.

The 9th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art with the title “The Present in Drag” will close with a grand finale during Berlin Art Week at all five locations. On 14 September these locations will once again become points of discovery, with special art actions, talks, performances and happenings.
