Initiated by Berlin gallerists in 2005, the Gallery Weekend brings together different gallery exhibitions that are spread across the whole city. Here, one witnesses the vital work of galleries as they champion and foster support for their artists, working alongside them to facilitate and conceive innovative and thought-provoking exhibitions. The weekend provides opportunities to discover new names or deepen existing passions.
