2010 // Berlin
With Aurélie Voltz, independent curator
In a city 8 times the size of Paris with more than a million habitants more, the space is there, to live but also to create! That is why the artists love the German capital that has become in ten years a hub for contemporary art. The programme proposes four days rich in discoveries, from must-sees to the more unusual.
From the collection of Christian Boros to that of Erika Hauffmann, via the Sammlung Haubrok, discovery of 3 attitudes and manners of conceiving a collection, in a bunker, private appartments or a space with an East German feel. Without forgetting Friedrich Christian Flick’s gigantic collection presented the contemporary art museum Hamburger Bahnhof. The same museum will also welcome an important personal exhibition by Carsten Höller. Discovering an artist’s studio, seeing project spaces that are part of Berlin’s vitality and watching a performance in the Salon Populaire, new venue with a rich programme, everything is here to favour the new!
A big circuit around Berlin’s different districts will show the recent movement of important galleries towards the West with, of course, the visit of young galleries, that flourish every year. An evening of openings will allow you to see the nocturnal ambiance of the city. Art and the life that goes with it: a diner at the top of the Reichstag with an unforgettable panorama and a dinner at HBC, an old Hungarian cultural centre converted into a project space to be experienced at night, in a sixties concrete atmosphere with a view on Alexanderplatz. And of course, tasting kölsch, the famous beet from Cologne in the unmissable bar 3, the artists’ bar. The next day, finally discovering the secrets of German cooking and, for some souvenirs an exclusive shopping in Mitte, with some addresses for young Berlin-based designers, the best of Scandinavian design, the exceptional vintage clothing shops without forgetting the good bookshops where you may find the catalogue you have been looking for for so long…
