The next Berlin Art Week will take place 15—19 SEP 2021.
Berlin Art Week 2020 was one of the first major cultural events in Berlin since the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic in Germany, which took place 'live' again—citywide, decentralized, outside and also digitally. Even in times of strict hygiene and distance rules, the whole spectrum of exhibitions, openings, fairs, interventions and tours was open to art-interested visitors from 9—13 SEP. This year, numerous programme points were also offered online by the partner institutions: The ›Playlist‹ contains live streams, performances, podcasts and radio programs, while the ›Journal‹ features interviews, news and many more articles about the Berlin Art Week 2020 programme.
Berlin Art Week in autum alongside Gallery Weekend in spring are the major highlights of the Berlin art year. Launched in 2012 as an collaboration of various partners, Berlin Art Week is all about contemporary art and brings together the most important players in Berlin's art scene: from art institutions, an art fair and private galleries to private collections, project spaces, and artists. Every year in autumn, the entire art scene opens up to art enthusiasts from around the globe with a programme of openings, award ceremonies, interventions in public space, art tours, and discussions. Berlin Art Week reflects what the city is all about: a source where art is created, a laboratory where topics in art are being discussed, a place for new impulses and many discoveries.
Berlin Art Week is a project by Kulturprojekte Berlin. It is made possible by the support of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe as well as the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, and realized with the support of GASAG AG.
