Berlin has a long and passionate connection to the fine arts. Today, museums, art associations, galleries, collections and project spaces continue to generate a productive network in which we also play an important role.

Popular formats with an international appeal are our trademark. Each year during the BERLIN ART WEEK, we collaborate closely with a number of different partners, often in unusual constellations, including with Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie, the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, the Berlinische Galerie, C/O Berlin as well as with the trade fair Positions Berlin. This annual contemporary art showcase is attended by roughly 100,000 visitors each autumn. In 2018, the EUROPEAN MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY, which we organise every two years in Berlin, featured 120 exhibition projects and 300 events throughout the city and attracted roughly 500,000 visitors. We also cooperated with the Museum of Modern Art New York and the Tate London, among others, on a R.B Kitaj retrospective. The exhibition known as "KUNST UND KULTUR / DEUTSCHE POSITIONEN 1945-1989" ("Art and the Cold War / German Positions 1945-1989") was a joint production with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). In 2011, the exhibition "BASED IN BERLIN" showcased the work of 80 up-and-coming artists from 26 nations currently living and working in Berlin.
