ART FORUM BERLIN 2004 remains faithful to its concept, showing the most consequent art of today. New this year, ART FORUM BERLIN will surprise its audience with the addition of an exhibition component. Following upon the success of last year’s fair, the ninth ART FORUM BERLIN 2004 will once again take place in the sunlit, historically protected Halls 18 – 20 at the Berlin Fairgrounds. Ideal exhibition conditions, extraordinary stand concepts and a strong focus on current art production are the trend-setting hallmarks of ART FORUM BERLIN. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Berlin’s dynamic cultural evolution, 100 international galleries present a concise overview of the latest in contemporary art, allowing visitors the space and time for stimulating new discoveries.

ART FORUM BERLIN’s proven conceptual orientation and a distinguished accompanying program make the fair an influential and attractive international event for contemporary art and a must for all those who wish to keep abreast with current developments. ART FORUM BERLIN will take place from September 18 – 22, 2004, with the Vernissage on September 17th, 2004.

During ART FORUM BERLIN, the renowned and highly anticipated Flick Collection, one of Europe’s largest private collections of modern and contemporary art, will be inaugurated at Berlin’s Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum of Contemporary Art and its adjoining Rieck-Halls. The exhibition “Black Atlantic” with contributions by Isaac Julien and Lisl Ponger, among others, opens on the 16th of September at the House of World Cultures. Solo exhibitions of the work of Sophie Calle at the Martin-Gropius-Bau and Robert Mapplethorpe at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin are further highlights of Berlin’s autumn season. Until the 19th of September, also during ART FORUM BERLIN and just before the 200 masterworks from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art are returned to New York, the exhibition “MoMA in Berlin” will be on be on view at Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie.

An extensive VIP Program and exciting panel discussion events dedicated to topics pertinent to the international art scene further combine to make ART FORUM BERLIN 2004 an important meeting point in September for collectors, curators and lovers of contemporary art.
