For five days, Berlin Art Week addresses the latest developments in contemporary art and brings together many important players from Berlin's art world–the Positions Berlin Art Fair and Galleries as well as the major institutions of contemporary art, private collections, and project spaces. Under the auspices of Kulturprojekte Berlin, responsible for the coordination and communication of this event, they invite the public to a packed programme of exhibition and gallery openings, performances, award ceremonies, and numerous special guided tours.
