Art Scene, Berlin

See the Berlin Guide ›
Germany's insider take:

Berlin remains a place where artists can rent studios and gallery spaces can be opened for a reasonable sum. But Mitte no longer has the lock on the gallery scene, a victim of its own success and the accompanying high rents. Though many powerhouse spaces still call Auguststrasse and Linienstrasse home, others have closed, and many have now moved to the former Western neighborhoods of Wedding and Tiergarten. In Mitte, strong players still include Contemporary Fine Arts, Eigen + Art, and Barbara Weiss. And try the Sammlung Boros in western Mitte, near the government quarter—a private collection housed in a huge WWII concrete bunker (guided tours are €10/$12). Branching out, the multi-culti, heavily Turkish neighborhood of Wedding has Galerie Max Hetzler, which deals in international superstars like Jeff Koons. Just south of the Neue Nationalgalerie on Potsdamer Strasse are former Mitte stars Klosterfelde, Matthias Arndt, and Esther Schipper. And in the newly hip Neukölln neighborhood in the south of the city, Berlin's most personality-driven gallery sits in a former industrial space— Peres Projects has had shows by James Franco and Terence Koh, and keeps the rest of Berlin guessing.—Updated by Ralph Martin
