news

The sixth Berlin Art Week opens across venues in the German capital today, running Sep 13 to 17.

In an effort to disentangle the vast, city-wide program for an AQNB audience, we’ve put together a list navigating the heady combination of festivals, fairs, exhibitions, performances and special events. Some highlights include, a Berlin Community Radio night of art, wellness and shopping the new BCR merchandise line on Thursday and the opening of the Harun Farocki retrospective at NBK, with an accompanying group exhibition, featuring Candice BreitzSamson Kambalu and others, at SAVVY.

There are other exhibition openings with Andrea Crespo, Sophie Serber and Lucie Stahl, as well ones still running at Future Gallery, Sandy Brown, Société and more. 

Read on for some of our recommendations:
