Vernissage / carlier | gebauer

Thursday 10th September – 4pm until 8pm

Laure Prouvost’s eclectic installations draw together diverse media in the construction of elaborate worlds both profoundly immersive and rigorously foreign. Returning to the theme of escape, Prouvost propels viewers through an aesthetic wonderland that perfectly balances the absurd and the banal to transformative effect.

Vernissage / Galerie Barbara Thumm

Thursday 10th September – 6pm until 9pm

Anna K.E. dances playfully between mediums with an eye to collage as she merges strategies of assemblage and installation with a Duchampian interest in the found object to construct a uniquely contemporary sculptural form. Layering material upon message with ample room for inquisitive contemplation, Teen Factory takes the aesthetic of the present moment just seriously enough to keep it interesting.

Vernissage / Köppe Contemporary

Thursday 10th September – 7pm until 10pm

At Köppe Contemporary this Thursday night, the renowned Christa Dichgans exhibits a masterful collection of paintings drawing high drama from the aesthetic banality of the day-to-day. Presenting a pictorial wonderland of pop-art-infused images rich with allusions to the art historical traditions of Concrete Art, Surrealism and the New Objectivity, Dichgans‘ work remains entirely her own.

Köppe Contemporary // Knausstraße 19, 14193 Berlin

Vernissage / Buchmann Galerie

Friday 11th September – 7pm until 9pm

The sculptural oeuvre of Wolfgang Laib moves material to the fore, pursuing a minimal dedication to essential forms and elemental forces. A giant in the field and a master of the media, Laib’s process-oriented practice demands ongoing contemplation and offers nothing less than pure delight.

Buchmann Galerie // Charlottenstraße 13, 10969 Berlin

Performance /  Schinkel Pavillon

Friday 11th September – 7pm until 10pm

Contemporary art legend Paul McCarthy brings his unique breed of lewd irreverence to the Schinkel Pavilion for a Berlin Art Week extravaganza. Delving into the iconography of the image, McCarthy explores the contradictions inherent in the contemporary spectacle of representation as only McCarthy can.

Schinkel Pavillon // Oberwallstrasse 1, 10117 Berlin, Germany

Performance /  Collegium Hungaricum Berlin

Monday 14th September – 8pm

For the fourth edition of the Monday Mode performance series, Isaac Chong Wai, Ben Mohai and Branko Miliskovic present a living installation, a one-man opera, and performative interview exploring the concept of transgression. Taking up questions of genre and gender, Wai, Mohai and Miliskovic bring performance into contemporary context with warmth and wit.
