International professionals and art lovers alike liked the quality of the artistic positions at the 9th abc art berlin contemporary: around 30.000 visitors were drawn to the halls of Station Berlin by abc art berlin contemporary.
This year, the architectural concept by Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge offered closed and open spatial configurations and was positively received due to its flexibility in presenting a variety of solo artistic presentations, as well as for the framework it provided for the entire exhibition.
For the first time, OUTSET Germany acquired an artwork at abc art berlin contemporary for a Berlin museum. This year, thanks to OUTSET, the video installation “L’air du temps” by the Dubai artist collective GCC (Kraupa-Tuskany Zeitler, Berlin) and “Untitled”, a lacquer work on wood from 2013 by Dirk Skreber (Galerie Luis Campaña, Cologne/Berlin) will become part of the collection of the Neue Nationalgalerie.
Funded by Projekt Zukunft, Niche Berlin organized the Special Guest Program, which invited select guests to come along with abc artists to visit their favorite places in Berlin. Among other highlights, abc guests could visit the aquarium with Sean Snyder, experience a tea ceremony with Laure Provost, explore the neighborhood of Lichtenberg through a guided tour with Christopher Roth, and much more. This discovery of Berlin through its artists was particularly well received by international guests.
