We have compiled for you a list of the Week's must-see venues and events.
Uferhallen in Wedding is a special highlight and a meeting point of this Art Week. The exhibition venue is home to over 150 artists who live and work in their studios, an internationally renowned place since its creation in 2007. Resident artists include Maria Eichhorn, Rosa Barba, So Young Park, Benedict Braun and many others.
In 2017, over 95 per cent of Uferhallen AG was sold to a company affiliated with Samwer brothers, which also owns Zalando. Plans include building and renting out luxury apartments and office spaces, which will lead to the closure of the studios. Faced with the looming impact of gentrification, Uferhallen AG has formed an association calling for a debate on the issue.
In response to this situation, the exhibition "On equal terms" discusses, among other things, how art relates to the mechanisms of partly voluntary, partly forced pricing of cultural and artistic assets.
The Berlin Art Week and BAW Open Studios are offering workshops, performances, talks and music and invite you to exchange, discover and participate.

British-Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum has become known for a series of performance and multi-media works. She is considered one of the most influential artists of her generation. Her work explores themes such as exile, migration and state control through the lens of her own biography and world events. Her works can be seen during Berlin Art Week at three different venues.
This is the first exhibition by the museum's new curator Anna Gritz. "Female Remedy" by the Los Angeles-born, Berlin-based artist Leila Heckmat turns Haus am Waldsee into a religious sanatorium for women, a kind of infirmary with hospital beds, an operating room, a chapel and a number of specialised treatment rooms. Combined with a live performance, the exhibition takes the form of a satirical multi-sensory installation encompassing the house and the garden. The play tells the story of the women in this institution, both nurses and patients, and their extraordinary journey to recovery.
Haus am Waldsee , Argentinische Allee 30, Zehlendorf, 7/ red. 5 €, 15.9.–8.1.
