Opening of second space in Berlin
Transit: April 29–July 29
Zilberman Berlin
Schlüterstraße 45

Zilberman is delighted to announce its new gallery space at Schlüterstraße 45 in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

Zilberman Gallery was founded in Istanbul in 2008, where it currently has two gallery spaces, a project space, and an artist residency. In 2016, the gallery expanded and opened a location at Goethestraße 82 in Berlin-Charlottenburg, which also includes an artist residency. The new gallery space in Schlüterstraße 45 can be found on the first floor.

Schlüterstraße 45 opened its doors on April 29, 2023 with the group exhibition Transit, including works by artists Yane Calovski & Hristina Ivanoska, Antje Engelmann, Memed Erdener, Hanna Frenzel, Itamar Gov, Fatoş İrwen, İz Öztat & Zişan & BAÇOY KOOP, Judith Raum, Sim Chi Yin, Annette Weisser, and curated by Lotte Laub & Susanne Weißer.

“O imperial City,” I cried out, “City fortified, City of the great king, the tabernacle of the most High, praise and song of his servants and beloved refuge for strangers, queen of the queens of cities, song of songs and splendor of splendors, and the rarest vision of the rare wonders of the world, who is it that has torn us away from thee like darling children from their adoring mother? What shall become of us?”

With these lines, the Byzantine historian Niketas Choniates in 1204 bewailed the devastating conquest and plundering of Constantinople in the Fourth Crusade. He would not live to see Istanbul later, under the Ottoman Empire, grow yet more fully into its role as a sanctuary for strangers from all over the world—until the tides turned again in the 20th century. With the founding of Turkey as a nation-state, major demographic upheavals were brought about forcibly through violent mass displacements.
