Eh? March? Yes, ARTBerlin is rushing forward into spring (or is this wishful thinking?) and bringing you our art recommendations from the exiting to the intriguing.
Also we have have our team galavanting around New York at Volta and The Armory Fair to come back with fresh, sparkling news and inspirations from the global art scene!
It is always somehow pleasing when an artist residency creates an environment which enables the artist to pursue a different experience, while creating and working on a new project. For the Brazilian artist Matheus Rocha Pitta it was the sensation of feeling quite comfortable with his surroundings. The result is called “For the winners the potatoes“ a hilarious narrative, which even extends beyond the borders of Künstlerhaus Bethanien into the public eye and space.
The San Francisco-based writer and cultural theorist Shawna Vesco and the New York-based artist, writer and curator Anne Wheeler tackle an indeed easily confusing, yet fascinating phenomenon in their current exhibition „Un-Working the Icon: Kurdish „Warrior-Divas“. The exhibition is part of apexart´s Franchise Exhibition program, which is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation, among many others.
We talked to them about this important show at Gallery Mario Kreuzberg.
Berlin ohne Berlinale wollen wir uns gar nicht vorstellen. Dasselbe gilt für unsere Lieblingskategorie den „Berlinale Shorts“, in der dieses Jahr wieder rund 30! internationale Kurzfilme um den Goldenen und Silbernen Bären konkurrieren. Wir haben Euch die wichtigsten Termine zur Berlinale Shorts zusammengefasst.
Absolutes Must-See & Go im Rahmen der Berlinale!

ARTBERLIN EXHIBITION HIGHLIGHTS
If you are ready to face reality again after the excesses of christmas and hangovers of new years – here are Artberlin’s exhibition highlights for the start of a hopefully grand year 2017!
The Idea and approach behind the Berlin Art Prize concept is one that pays credit to the overwhelming number of artists (known and unknown) living and working in Berlin. An annual and independent art prize by artists for artists, no recommendations needed, with an anomynous selection of the jury to queer the system of hierarchy. That was in 2013.
We talked to 3 of the founders about their most significant moments, artists, insights and future goals.
