KW Digital: The Last Museum

The digital exhibition 'The Last Museum' is now online and can be visited via our website www.kw-berlin.de/thelastmuseum, or directly when entering our main page.

The exhibition features all-new commissions that blur the line between cinema and sculpture, while exploring the potential of web-site-specificity.

The participating artists are: Nora Al-Badri, Nicole Foreshew, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Jakrawal Nilthamrong, Zohra Opoku and Charles Stankievech.

Each artist was commissioned to author a sculptural group, to be installed at a physical site of their own choosing. The choice was only limited by a request that it be associated with communications infrastructure. Final locations ended up highlighting both technical and more esoteric resources for connectivity.

with introduction by our assistant curator Léon Kruijswijk.
The link will be announced here: http://bit.ly/LeonilsonScreening

It is a documentary based on tape recordings Leonilson started to create from January 1990 onwards. The spoken journal discloses an intimate insight into the artist’s dreams, memories, personal stories, and thoughts on the socio-political situation at the time. Combined with related news and other video fragments and placed in relation to his works, the documentary takes the viewer along in the artist’s daily life, mind and feelings, to show how these resonate in his oeuvre.

Our anthology of Amelie von Wulffen's collected comics from 2011 to 2020 was published by Buchhandlung Walther König and brings together a casual yet impressive branch of her practice on 208 pages. It's ready to order in English and German here: http://bit.ly/KWpublications ! 🧚🏽‍

Von Wulffens comics address the social codes of the art world, the daily life of being a female artist, and nightmare-like, surreal psychogeographies. They poignantly and parodically observe fears of failure, loneliness, competition, so-called good taste, and sexual affairs, while questioning a clear cut distinction between high and low, artistic genius and amateurism.

#30yearskw : This phrase belongs to the conceptual work "Berliner Chronik", for which Joseph Kosuth placed quotes by Walter Benjamin in public places throughout Berlin over nine days in 1994.

"Architecture has always represented the prototype of a work of art the reception of which is consumed by a collectivity in a state of distraction. The laws of its reception are most instructive." - W.B.

Our Story

KW Institute for Contemporary Art aims to approach the central questions of our times through the production, display, and dissemination of contemporary art. Since its inception, 25 years ago, KW has established itself, not only as an institution, but also as a dynamic and lively space for progressive practices within the Berlin art scene, as well as in an international context. By means of exhibitions and various event formats, KW has aligned itself towards the current tendencies of the national and international art and cultural discourse, and has actively developed them on a collaborative level with artists, institutions, and by means of commissioned works. As an institution for contemporary art without a collection of its own, the team at KW maintains a high degree of flexibility in creating its programs and addressing its audience. Under the responsibility of director Krist Gruijthuijsen, the current program evolves around the central objective of using the participating artists’ perspective as a starting point, entailing their subjects and points of view as ways to reflect on social and political issues. The institution is thereby conceived as a social space that facilitates contemplation and exchange between different protagonists and cultures, consistently challenging its audience. The building complex includes exhibition halls, apartments, offices, and event spaces, as well as the Café Bravo in the courtyard, that was designed by Dan Graham in 1999. In addition to its internationally renowned exhibition program, KW collaborates on a regular basis with national and international partners, such as MoMA PS1, the Biennale di Venezia and Documenta in Kassel. KW Institute for Contemporary Art is institutionally supported by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The program of KW is kindly supported by the KW Freunde e. V.

1st International Conceptual Art Biennale “Image Deconstruction" VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE ARTWORK! VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE ARTWORK! 1st International Conceptual Art Biennale “Image Deconstruction” invites. 1st International Conceptual Art Biennale “Image Deconstruction” This virtual exhibition will present art works of artists from all over the world. We invite you to join this exhibition and share your work with the whole world. The aim of this Biennale is to draw artists’ attention to the efficiency and advantages of applying the principles of deconstruction and the impact it has on the viewer. The effects of a dynamic environment leading to constant changes and contradictions, the right circumstances, and continuous improvement are directly related to the deconstructive dominance of the environment in which a person grows. Therefore, the art perfectly reflects the environmental changes that determine the deconstruction of the image. Due to constant changes in the environment, art objects become as deconstructed as the environment itself, i.e., “representatives” of reality. So what is the purpose and impact of deconstructive art in today’s society?
