This weekend is a busy one in the Berlin gallery scene—with many galleries opening their doors to show works by emerging and established artists, with most galleries participating from Friday, April 29 to Sunday, May 1.

What’s on our list? We’ll be heading to Esther Schipper Gallery to see “Hempisheres,” David Claerbout’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, which brings together two large-scale video projections that incorporate found footage of an amateur film made in the 1920s mixed with digital renderings. 

Another must-see is “Mesmerizing Mesh” at Galerie Barbara Wein, featuring 26 collages by artist Haegue Yang made from hanji (traditional Korean paper) as well as two “Sonic Sculptures.”

But there’s a lot more to see. We’ve put together a list of shows we’ll definitely be checking out.
