Buckle up, Berliners. This is your city’s annual Gallery Weekend, and with over 50 participating venues, you’ve got a lot of ground to cover. The Germany capitol is perhaps best explored by bike, so dust yours off or grab a rental to discover new galleries, take in a variety of innovative architecture, and gain insight into the current state of art production in Berlin. It’s no surprise that artists and dealers are pulling out all the stops for the occasion, so enjoy exhibitions from heavy-hitters like Ghada Amer, Victor Man, and Tomas Saraceno alongside fresh emerging talent. Grab this guide, and hit the streets.
