Munich/Berlin. Taking place from
April 28 to 30, 2023, the 19th edition of Gallery Weekend
Berlin will feature shows of both emerging talents and established
artists in 55 galleries based in Berlin. With its extensive programme
presented at over 50 locations, the event will exhibit the works of
around 80 international artists. In 2023, BMW, together with Gallery
Weekend Berlin, publish “Studio Visits with…”, a collaborative series
of videos featuring Berlin-based artists in their studios. As part of
its cultural engagement, BMW Group has been main partner of Gallery
Weekend Berlin since 2013.

The video series “Studio Visits with…” features Aziz

Farkhondeh Shahroudi talking about their everyday-life and offering
insights into their artistic practice. This growing series is shown at
gallery-weekend-berlin.de

continuation of “A coffee with …”, a series of videos from 2022
initiated by Gallery Weekend Berlin and BMW, in which international
stakeholders of the art world are interviewed about its future.

Maike Cruse, Director Gallery Weekend Berlin, said,
“Each spring during Gallery Weekend Berlin-based galleries and shows
welcome many guests of the German capital and present
up-and-coming-artists as well as established artists side by side. In
doing so, they make visible the important work of galleries who
support artists in building their careers, promote them along the way
and curate exhibitions in close collaboration with them.”

“Gallery Weekend Berlin has become a highlight of the art world in
celebrating Berlin-based galleries and artists with its unique format
combining outstanding exhibitions with the experience of both city and
gallery spaces. As such, Gallery Weekend Berlin contributes actively
to the intercultural dialogue taking place in Berlin,” said
Dr. Nicolas Peter, Member of the Board of BMW AG,
