That Berlin has a unique artistic scene is a long-established fact – an impressive number of renowned contemporary art galleries and artists has put the German capital on the map of the most important artistic hubs in the world. To contribute even further to this atmosphere, there will be the 12th edition of Gallery Weekend Berlin, an event that has become an inevitable item in any collector’s or art enthusiast’s calendar. In 2016, we can expect as many as 54 Berlin art spaces, which will exhibit the works by both established and emerging creatives from Germany and around the globe. For three days straight, the visitors can enjoy the very best of exhibitions and social events, spread across the city.
