more about

The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art has appointed collaborating curators María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, and Agustín Pérez Rubio (see the biographies) for its 11th edition. The members of this intergenerational, female identified team of South-American curators come together in a four-voice constellation.

Three sequential moments

The curators envision this edition of the Berlin Biennale as a series of lived experiences that evolve as a process. It begins with three sequential moments, exp. 1, exp. 2, and exp. 3, unfolding from September 2019 to May 2020, which attempt to learn from and build sustainable relations, not only with participating artists and projects, but as importantly with the city and people of Berlin. The starting point is the immediate surroundings of the ExRotaprint complex in the neighborhood of Wedding. Nothing is complete; things are expected to move and be transformed. In June 2020, the 11th Berlin Biennale will bring forth these experiences in different venues throughout the city.

exp. 1: The Bones of the World
7 September - 9 November 2019

exp. 2: Virginia de Medeiros – Feminist Health Care Research Group
30 November 2019 - 8 February 2020

exp. 3: 22 February - 2 May 2020

The 11th Berlin Biennale space at ExRotaprint—a tenant-run project initiated by artists, bringing together work, art, and community—serves as a space for these diverse experiences to unfold, each including exhibitions, long-term artist projects and workshops, activations of artistic and pedagogical archives, performances, talks, poetry readings, artistic residencies, and other on-site interventions.
