11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art to Open in September

Since September 2019, the 11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art has been unfolding as a process with “exp. 1”, “exp. 2”, and “exp. 3”. From 5 September to 1 November 2020, the upcoming exhibition, the epilogue, will bring together these experiences and the issues they raise in four locations, including the Gropius Bau.

Since September 2019, the 11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art has been unfolding as a process with “exp. 1”, “exp. 2”, and “exp. 3”. From 5 September to 1 November 2020, the upcoming exhibition, the epilogue, will bring together these experiences and the issues they raise in four locations, including the Gropius Bau.

The 11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is curated by María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, and Agustín Pérez Rubio. The members of this intergenerational, female identified team of South American curators envision the forthcoming edition of the Berlin Biennale as a series of lived experiences that evolve as a process.

The program includes exhibitions, performances, artist residencies, lectures, presentations, and workshops. In autumn 2020, the upcoming edition of the Berlin Biennale will bring forth all experiences at four venues.

“We began by asking how to celebrate the complicated beauty of life as the world burns around us. Baring ourselves through the stories that carry us, asking what can be, what is being mobilized today. For the epilogue, these lived experiences merge, cumulate, and fall out with one another; sometimes even leaving each other behind like abandoned buildings. This nearing moment is not only about old skeletons dear to us, but more importantly about listening to the songs of the living bodies that make up our cities. It is about grasping how these moving bodies inhabit and transform the places people call home—not the precarious shelters and walls built to defend the inadmissible present, but those exchanges and support structures of shared fragility that sustain people. How do we care for those worlds that separate us and at the same time bring us together, preparing us for new collisions, for turbulences yet to come? Up against the dismantling anxieties and crises brought on by fear and hate, the violence that surrounds us, that we are part of. Solidarities of vulnerabilities in struggle push forward multiple unrehearsed uprisings of beautiful rage.”
(María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, Agustín Pérez Rubio)
