Some Things from Berlin Art Gallery Weekend
For serious shoppers, Berlin Gallery Weekend may seem gratuitously unwieldy— a sort of quasi art fair not gathered under one convenient tent, but scattered all over the German capital, each location flung further than the next. But for those like myself who are just looking, the beauty of this vaguely organized annual enterprise is that it forces you to visit all of the incredible repurposed spaces the city never seems to grow short of. (Art envy? Not so much. Real estate envy? Totally.) This year those spaces included a massive brutalist church and a store front on the monumental GDR Boulevard Karl Marx Allee. Here, some highlights from the weekend, and not a white box in the bunch.
