New at this year’s ART FORUM BERLIN: The special exhibition project “Made in Berlin” . Curated by the former director of Hamburg’s Deichtorhallen, Zdenek Felix, the group show will present 42 artists in a 1,100 square meters specially designed exhibition hall, directly adjacent to the galleries parcours.
