Berlin Biennale

Since each year's Berlin Biennale is put together by a different curator, this art event is influenced by his or her perception of society and the modern world. The Biennale explores artistic developments and presents the unfamiliar against the backdrop of the city, its people and their relationship to art.

Berlin Biennale - a contemporary art lab

The Berlin Biennale is an "open space" that critically examines and experiments with the latest trends in the art world. The innovative character of this “art lab” will be expanded with the particular aim of giving young artists the opportunity to present their art to the public.

Background of the Biennale

The Berlin Biennale was founded in 1998 on the initiative of Eberhard Mayntz and Klaus Biesenbach in order to promote an international forum for contemporary art in Berlin.

The KW Institute for Contemporary Art has supported the Berlin Biennale Since 2004. Its significance for the cultural landscape is reflected in the patronage granted by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes (German Federal Cultural Foundation).
