We warmly invite you to the opening of the 8th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, taking place on May 28 from 7 to 10pm at all venues.

The 8th Berlin Biennale brings together a range of international artistic positions that explore the intersection between larger historical narratives and individuals’ lives. The majority of the participating artists have produced new works for the exhibition, which proposes new perspectives on the facets of and relations in history. It spans four distinct venues in western Berlin and Berlin-Mitte—Haus am Waldsee, Museen Dahlem – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and Crash Pad c/o KW. The exhibition is on view from May 29 until August 3.

On May 1, the 8th Berlin Biennale opens a second preliminary statement. Mark your calendars and check our social media feeds for further details.
