ART FORUM BERLIN 2002: International Fair for Contemporary Art
September 26 – 30, 2002

Preview: September 25, 2002

ART FORUM BERLIN, The International Fair for Contemporary Art, is Europe’s only comprehensive fair dedicated solely to the presentation of contemporary art and emerging production. Delighting visitors with a captivating overview of the most recent trends in the international contemporary art scene, ART FORUM BERLIN offers the perfect setting in which to immerse oneself in the discovery of new artists and new art projects from all over the world. Set in the context of Europe’s most rapidly expanding cultural capital, ART FORUM BERLIN draws collectors, curators, critics and art-lovers from all nations in increasing numbers each year. As one Canadian collector described his visit to last year’s fair: “Exciting art in an exciting time in an exciting city – what could be better!”.

As of the beginning of this year a new international Galleries Advisory Board has been established, taking over the role of conceptual counsel from European Galleries Projektgesellschaft, the founders of the fair, who after six successful years are passing the reigns along to the following generation. This paves the way for ART FORUM BERLIN’s entrance into the next exciting stage of its development. The new board will give expert counsel to the Messe Berlin concerning the conceptual orientation of this flourishing contemporary art fair and is composed of the following gallerists:

Cilene Andrehn, Stockholm; Gerd Harry Lybke, Berlin; Christian Nagel, Koln/Berlin; Anthony Reynolds, London; Burkhard Riemschneider, Berlin; Aidan Salakhova, Moscow; Barbara Thumm, Berlin; Thilo Wermke, Berlin.

The seventh ART FORUM BERLIN takes place under the patronage of the Governing Mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit who underscores his support for the fair on the one hand with ART FORUM BERLIN’s high demand for quality, and on the other hand with the international profile and positive appeal of the art fair and Berlin’s art scene, which make such essential contributions to the city.

Parallel to the fair, Germany’s capital once again offers numerous exciting exhibitions and other events in the course of the .Kunstherbst Berlin. Highlights include an exhibition of new work by Gerhard Richter at the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, the exhibition “Spatial” at DaimlerChrysler Contemporary, “Mexico City: an exhibition about “the exchange rate of bodies and values” at the KW Kunst-Werke Berlin e.V. and the festival “MEXArtes” at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

ART FORUM BERLIN 2002 – The International Fair for Contemporary Art – will take place for the seventh time from September 26th – 30th, 2002 at the Berlin Fairgrounds. Opening hours: 12-8pm. The preview will be on Wednesday, September 25th, 2002.
