BERLIN BIENNALE RELEASES ARTIST LIST FOR TENTH EDITION — Art Forum

Art Forum, 04.28.2018

The Berlin Biennale announced today that forty-six artists’ work will be featured in its tenth edition, which will be held at various venues across the city, including the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, the Akademie der Künste, and the ZK/U–Center for Art and Urbanistics.

Curated by Gabi Ngcobo, this year’s biennial, titled “We don’t need another hero,” is named after a Tina Turner song from 1985. The exhibition invites artists and contributors “to confront the incessant anxieties perpetuated by a willful disregard for complex subjectivities.” It will run from June 9 to September 9.
