Berlin art lovers! It’s that time of the year again – next week marks the return of Berlin Art Week. The fourth edition of Berlin Art Week kicks off on Tuesday 15th September and is set to be six days of citywide exhibitions, private collections, performances and so much more. Some of the highlights of the week that shouldn’t be missed:
‘Cindy Sherman – Works from the Olbricht Collection’. This upcoming exhibition can be seen at me Collectors Room from the 16th. Featuring more than 60 of Sherman’s photographs, the exhibition gives a vivid overview into the career of one of the most significant photographers alive today. Sherman has a unique approach to her photography – taking the role of both photographer and model. Sherman’s photography is both striking and poignant – offering a compelling critique of female stereotypes within media, film and television.

Another must-see is Laure Prouvost’s installations at carlier | gebauer, Thursday 10th from 4pm – 8pm. A solo exhibition featuring a selection of works from the 2013 Turner Prize winning conceptual artist. Proust’s installations explore profoundly atmospheric environments intertwined with themes of escapism and the past – definitely not one to miss.

acb Art Berlin Contemporary taking place from the 17th to the 20th at Station Berlin at Gleisdreieck and showcasing work from hundreds of contemporary artists. Of the many featured-artists worth checking out Berlin-based Jorinde Voigt is a name that stands out from the crowd. Voigt’s ability to encapsulate themes of music and philosophy within her art is second to none, and the result is that of a real intricacy and originality.
