Must-See Art Guide: Berlin
This week's guide features Hubertus Hamm, Akim Monet, Anna Baklane, and more.
Guten tag, Berliners. This is a guide for an ambitious week of art sight-seeing, so let’s not waste any time: Head to Buchmann Galerie for a refreshingly focused exhibition of expressive charcoal drawings by the American-British artist William Tucker. For a critical exploration of portrait photography, visit Galerie Kornfeld Berlin for Hubertus Hamm’s wide away from conceptual interpretations of the genre—be sure not to miss the fingerprint portraits, especially. Then, make your next stop at Galerie Nordenhake for poetic sculptures made from discarded industrial materials. With minimal intervention, artist Meuser is able to get a lot of mileage out of materials that have been used to less inventive ends by many other artists, and achieve touchingly memorable results. If you’d rather look for some abstract painting, Jonathan Bragdon’s solo show at Aurel Scheibler features a range of approaches and techniques, from landscape-inspired compositions to densely patterned canvases.
Berlin is detestably Europe’s most arty city, so you know what to do: make the most of it and visit as many galleries as you can!
