Berlin, 17 September 2018. When the seventh Berlin Art Week begins in just about a week, two art fairs, fifteen museums and exhibition halls, two Kunstvereine, a theatre, eleven Berlin private collections and twenty project spaces will present a comprehensive programme. Besides exhibitions, performances, and award ceremonies, Berlin Art Week also offers numerous special events and tours around contemporary art and its venues ini the German capital and invites visitors to discover current trends and developments. For the first time, the week of events will be pro-pomoted with funds from the Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The Senate Departiment for Economics, Energy and Pubblic Enterprises will continue in its role of co-funder of Berlin Art Week.
In the words of Berlin’s Senator for Culture and Europe, Klaus Lederer: “Since its founding, Berlin Art Week has developed to become a prominent event in the world of contemporary art that attracts attention far beyond the city’s borders and has now become a fixture on the international art calendar. Using money from the new Festivalfonds enables better long-term planning for this important cultural event”. The city’s Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, Ramona Pop continues: “Berlin is a hotspot for the art trade and the creative economy. Berlin Art Week is a lighthouse event that draws international attention, and this benefits local agents and enterprises in many ways. Berlin Art Week attracts people from all over the world each year. I am pleased that we support this outstanding week of events: after all, our Berlin Tourism Plan 2018+ seeks to focus on quality tourism. Now with over 100.000 visitors, Berlin Art Week increases the capital’s attraction as a tourist destination”.

A focus of this year’s programme will be the two art fairs art berlin and Positions Berlin Art Fair, that will both be held this year for the first time in the hangars of the former airport Tempelhof. Gallery Openings at the Berlin galleries participating in the fairs will feature more than 70 exhibitions at galleries all across the city. In addition, visitors can expect several solo shows at the city’s many institutions of contemporary art with work by artists such as Agnieszka Polska, Julian Charrière, and Lee Bul, as well as numerous thematic exhibitions. In 2018, special attention will be placed on photography, with the EMOP Opening Days of the Europe Month of Photography in Berlin. An innovation this year will be the various interventions in public space, with which Berlin Art Week literally takes to the streets: for example, the internationally renowned programme series immersion at the Berliner Festspiele will present a mobile dome on Kreuzberg’s Mariannenplatz with its new project The New Infinity. The eagerly awaited opening of Deutsche Bank’s new forum for art, culture, and sport PalaisPopulaire in the historic Prinzessinnenplais on Unter den Linden with the exhibition The World on Paper enriches the varied programme of Berlin Art Week. Another highlight is the first public opening of Akademie der Künste’s restored Picture Cellar with large murals by Manfred Böttcher, Ernst Schroeder, Harald Metzkes, and Horst Zickelbein.

Berlin Art Week 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. Kulturprojekte Berlin is responsible for coordination and communication.
