Decoding Berlin is a week of discovering the many Berlin art scenes and will take place 25-30 May, 2015, through an intensive series of talks and walks through the city. This new program is initiated and organised by Nika Radić, Kathy Rae Huffman and Dr. Judit Bönisch. Focus will be on places beyond mainstream institutions and exhibition sites, in order to discover people, ideas, projects and spaces that few people, apart from insiders, will be aware of. The experience will be unique being based on profound knowledge and extensive personal networks of the organizers.
During the week, we will show many ways in which contemporary art is being created and presented in one of today’s most important international art centers. The project participants, who are themselves art professionals, will meet artists, gallerists, curators, publishers and others who are active contributors in Berlin. What is happening behind the scenes will be discussed daily, offering the participants the possibility to learn from the experiences of those working in the vibrant city, which requires many survival skills and solutions to today’s art world challenges.
