Berlin – an artists’ city
July 11, 2007
Talk by Patricia Kohl, Berlin-based curator and gallerist
Artspeak, Wednesday, July 11, 8pm
Patricia Kohl will discuss the multifaceted aspects of Berlin’s art spaces, including commercial galleries, residencies, alternative models and museums. Focusing on spaces that have developed out of circumstances particular to the city, she will approach why Berlin is uniquely attractive to artists and why so many foreign artists have chosen to work there. Kohl will focus her talk on the commercial gallery as the dominant model in a city that is largely devoid of public funding for contemporary visual art, and will draw parallels between their programs and artist-run/non-commercial initiatives.
