After a successful start in 2012, the second BERLIN ART WEEK will take place this year from 17–22 September 2013. With an exciting and richly varied program of outstanding exhibitions, openings, events, numerous special projects at the ten participating institutions, and the art fairs abc – art berlin contemporary and PREVIEW Berlin Art Fair, BERLIN ART WEEK in 2013 will present the whole range of Berlin art and promises to become the art event of the fall.
A highlight of Berlin Art Week 2013 is Painting Forever!, a collaboration of Berlinische Galerie, Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin examining the subject of contemporary painting in Berlin in the first ever collabaration of these four institutions. For the first time, an expert jury consisting of Monica Bonvicini, Claudia Wahjudi, and Kasper König has selected ten additional project partners to complement the official program, including the art film festival DOKU.ARTS – Second Hand Cinema, the municipal galleries Galerie M und Kunstverein Tiergarten | Galerie Nord, the independent project spaces after the butcher, AUTOCENTER und Schinkel Pavillon, the women artists’ program Goldrausch, and the artist-in-residence program Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik ZK/U.
BERLIN ART WEEK will open on September 17, 2013 at 7 pm with an open-air celebration on Auguststraße in Berlin-Mitte. Once again this year, BERLIN ART WEEK will offer a Combi-Ticket for admission to all exhibition sites.
