Highlight of the Berlin Autumn
Deutsche Bank Partner of Berlin Art Week

London paved the way. The Frieze Art Fair gave rise to Frieze Week, during which some of the year’s most compelling exhibitions are shown in the city’s museums and galleries. After the successful begin of the Berlin Art Week in 2012, the German capital is pooling its art resources again this year. Deutsche Bank is a partner of the promising format. In addition to two art fairs, the abc – art berlin contemporary and the Preview, numerous exhibitions and events will be staged starting September 17.

The abc is exclusively showing solo exhibitions of contemporary artists, including several represented in the Deutsche Bank CollectionAnni Leppälä, Laura Lima, Robert Lucander, Danyanita Singh, and Thomas Zipp. This year’s Preview is being held in new rooms, in the former painters’ halls of the opera workshop. A focal point of the fair is young up-and-coming artists and galleries. And the Focus Academy section offers graduates of international art schools the opportunity to have their first experiences on the art market.

A special highlight of the Berlin Art Week is Painting Forever!. Four important exhibition venues for contemporary art are showing what the Berlin painting scene is currently occupied with.  While Franz Ackermann is presenting his works in a site-specific installation in the Berlinische Galerie, the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle is mounting a show entitled To Paint is to Love Again, presenting the grande dame of Berlin art history in dialogue with three current women painters. Works by Antje Majewski, Katrin Plavčak, and Giovanna Sarti are juxtaposed with late unknown paintings by Jeanne Mammen. The group exhibition Keilrahmen (Stretcher Frames) is on view at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and in the glass cube of the Neue Nationalgalerie, four artists are featured who have had an impact on German painting since the 1990s: Martin Eder, Michael Kunze, Anselm Reyle, and Thomas Scheibitz.

But not only established institutions are participating in Berlin Art Week. A prominent jury consisting of the artist Monica Bonvicini, the longtime director of Cologne’s Museum Ludwig Kasper König, and the art journalist Claudia Wahjudi, invited ten project spaces and initiatives to Art Week, including after the butcher, Autocenter, and Schinkel Pavillon. Under the slogan “discursive construction communicative destruction,” performances by the Austrian artists’ collective Gelitin can be seen. The collaboration between all of the partners taking part in Art Week enables the entire spectrum of the art metropolis Berlin to be experienced in one concentrated program. It is therefore only consistent that Deutsche Bank, which views its KunstHalle as a forum for the city’s creative scene, is also involved in Berlin Art Week.
