The newly founded art berlin is a partnership between abc art berlin contemporary and Art Cologne. As a further evolution of abc, the art fair takes place for the first time in September 2017: under the direction of Maike Cruse, previously director of abc, art berlin presents around 110 international galleries from 16 countries at Station at Gleisdreieck. In addition to emerging as well as established galleries focusing on contemporary art, one will also be able to discover Modern and Post-war art at art berlin. Many galleries continue the principle of abc and present solo presentations or curated booths.
Throughout its four-day running time, art berlin invites you to a dense program of events that have been developed in collaboration with Berlin artists. The program, aimed in part at invited guests but also directed to the wider public, encompasses talks, studio visits, and walks throughout the exhibition grounds and in the city. On Friday evening, September 15, Berlin galleries participating in art berlin open the doors to their exhibitions. Many of these exhibitions will be opening on that same evening and complement the weekend program of Berlin Art Week.
