Berlin's gallery scene consists of an estimated 400 galleries plus 100 project spaces and alternative places that pop up all over town. Trying to access it can be hard - how do you select a gallery or an opening to go to with that many choices available?
This rotating tour helps narrow down the options by exploring selected art hubs in different parts of the city, from the young and trendy spaces around Mitte and former East Berlin to the more established ateliers and galleries of City West.
Each tour takes in around 4-6 art-related spaces - galleries as well as project spaces - that span a variety of mediums (painting, sculpture, installation), ensuring plenty of room for discussion and analysis along the way.
