An unanswered question a day keeps the doctor away or something on those terms. The apple, if you will, of art seems to be the never-ending meditations on its existence, value, and purpose in the form of the unanswered question: What is art? Curator René Block hits us up with this query once again with , a cooperative exhibition between TANAS and n.b.k. in Berlin. The exhibition serves as a farewell gesture to TANAS, a non-commercial project space, as it closes its doors after its five years... [more]

The common expression implies an act of removing oneself from the confinements of society's rules and prohibitions. Its connotations suggest the sort of outskirts-of-society feeling of the industrial environment in which Berlin’s Circus gallery is located. At the Outset, the gallery’s current exhibition, seems to have found its home. Conceived by the Rotterdam-based artist Katarina Zdjelar, the exhibition suggests the potential for the “reinvention and resocialisation” of objects that have... [more]

Knock on wood and you stave away bad luck. The saying entails a performative act: interact with an everyday object and you, the subject, are protected. The exhibition  at neugerriemschneider gallery presents reflections on one's relation to the material world. Its point of departure is "the creative confrontation with everyday objects” and it features artists Ai Weiwei, Pawel Althamer, Olafur Eliasson, Isa Genzken, Sharon Lockhart, Renata Lucas, Jorge Pardo, Simon Starling, Rirkrit Tiravanija...

A mall is an efficient space aimed at making your needs conveniently accessible. Even the space itself offers mechanic facilities that provide a bodily extension; perceived needs and desires are met with every modern convenience. On Lindenstrasse 34-35 in Berlin, eleven galleries are joined in compact housing, a mall of art, if you will. An elevator large enough for a single person carries you up to the third floor where you find ŻAK | BRANICKA and its current exhibition, Images of Contingency,... [more]
So there is this app. The EyeOut app is the official application of Gallery Weekend Berlin 2013. It makes sure you won’t miss a thing. It helps you plan your art weekend in advance, but also allows room for chance and instinct – you can just enter your location on your phone and see which galleries are nearby. A scroll, a link, and a touch round up the fifty-one galleries having concurrent openings this weekend. In an attempt to verify that I am human, I’d like to add some additional un-applied... [more]
