Berlin is a powerful and attractive hub for artists and young curators from all over the world and thus an extremely vibrant production site for creators of culture. The Berlin Biennale, being held for the ninth time from June 4 until September 18, 2016, will present an embracing recap of these creative energies. The Berlin Biennale/KW Institute for Contemporary Art in cooperation with Allianz Cultural Foundation, BMW and ifa - Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen will take this core event in contemporary art and the reflection of its process of emergence as an occasion to strengthen the initiative of young curators worldwide by organizing a workshop for a group of 10–12 young aspirants in this field.
Based on the success of the Young Curators Workshop held in relation from the 4th to the 8th Berlin Biennale, KW Institute for Contemporary Art decided to continue this idea of exchange between young curators and to organize the workshop during the course of the 9th edition.
