Top 5 Exhibitions September 2017

Berlin is burning! It’s not only the month of Berlin Art Week, but also Federal elections and the end of the summer – not so “summerish” this year, it’s true… Anyway, it’s time to back from holidays and on track. The Top 5 Exhibitions of September includes photography, installation, alternative technics and materials and much more. For those who travel north, we have also picked one museum show opening in Hamburg to mix things up!

Adam Lee and This Earthen Tent

When we first saw works of Adam Lee at Volta Art Fair, there was an instant attraction and we had a good talk with his gallerist from Angell Gallery in Toronto and stayed in touch. On learning that there would be upcoming his solo show „This Earthen Tent“ in London, we got really excited about the possibility of talking to him, especially after seeing photos of the new paintings in this series. The preview opens tonight at BEERS London, and as it runs till end of September, we can´t wait to fly over after Berlin Art Week to see his new works in the flesh.



d14 Kassel – Athens

When documenta opened in Kassel the world’s most important show on contemporary art was already far down the track. With its 14th edition in 2017, the exhibition, which has the image of being an institution in the art world, chose to expand to second hosting city: Athens. For those who haven’t followed documenta for ages, the art show has presented international spearhead art exceptional in the city of Kassel every five years since inception in 1955. Therefore, it’s quite a thing for the exhibition to unexpectedly double in size with the addition of an equal sister host city. Follow our contributor Valeria Geritzen into the depths of documenta.

Toelke und Viron Erol Vert´s „Born in the Purple“

Bei dem offiziellen Pressetext von „Born in the Purple“ droht ein narkoleptischer Anfall findet der Autor und Journalist Andreas Toelke. Die ausgestellten Arbeiten selbst, sieht er dennoch als einen der positivesten aller Kunst-Overkills in der letzen Zeit!
Das interdisziplinäre Ausstellungsprojekt des in Berlin und Istanbul lebenden Künstlers Viron Erol Vert im Kunstraum Bethanien läuft noch bis Ende August. Wer also noch nicht dort war, sollte sich auf jeden Fall auf den Weg zum Mariannenplatz machen.

Tilman Brembs, „Himmel über Berlin 3“, 2015, digitale Fotografie, 24x30cm


Though half the city might be away on holiday and most art galleries are also on summer break, there are of course still plenty of scrumptious things to see for the insatiable Berliner art-caterpillar. Thank awesomeness that ARTBerlin is here to serve you the delicacies of this month before we muscle up for Berlin Art Week in September!

Ebensperger´s Centre of the World

Die Affinität zum O-Ton „Seltsamen“ ist nicht nur der vielbeschworene Rote Faden der sich durch das Ausstellungsprogramm der Galerie Ebensperger zieht, es ist auch die betont lässige Attitüde von Patrick Ebensperger und Sebastian Hoffmann die sie auf recht angenehme Weise von so manch hochtrabenden Galerie Kollegen unterscheidet.
Umso mehr Grund für uns die beiden in Österreich zu besuchen, wo sie heute, am 23. Juli, ihre neue Dependance mit der Groupshow „Centre of the World“ – in ja genau, Salzburg,
wo sonst, eröffnen!




Plenty of art to go see this month in Berlin, so pack your umbrella and wellies, or escape the flood and get a ticket to idyllic Bad Gastein in Austria!

Project space Cafuné

Due to our Brazilian month we want to introduce you to a new temporary project space in Neukölln called Cafuné. The two heads behind it come from, you maybe guessed, Brazil, and their approach is dedicated to the experimentation and development of contemporary dialogues between the northern and southern hemispheres. On top they have an amazing programme planned for 48 Stunden Neukölln, so we thought it an ideal time for a quick chat with Ingrid & Olav before the weekend kicks off!
