Presenting a more stringent line-up of international galleries than ever, the 12th ART FORUM BERLIN confirms itself to be the most fascinating and innovative art fair in Europe dedicated to contemporary art. Works by more than 2,100 artists in all media will be on view, presented by 136 galleries from 23 countries drawn from four continents.
