This year Berlin presents all it has to offer in the realm of contemporary art with a new event. For the first Berlin Art Week, September 11–16, 2012, several partners have joined efforts: the art fairs abc – art berlin contemporary and Preview Berlin Art Fair along with the city's prominent institutions of contemporary art: Akademie der Künste, Berlinische Galerie, C/O Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, KW Institute for Contemporary ArtNationalgalerieVerein der Freunde der NationalgalerieNeuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), and Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst (NGBK) e.V. Together they present a week with exhibitions, openings, talks, performance, video screenings, and concerts. In addition, numerous Berlin galleries will be hosting openings to mark Berlin Art Week, representing all realms of contemporary art: painting, film and video, architecture and installations, drawings and sculpture.

Berlin Art Week combines the art events in September in an exciting program: for more details, visit the website, www.berlinartweek.de. The website also features visual material, background texts, service offerings, and the online ticket: 28 Euros for a ticket covering admission to all the partner venues.

This year's Berlin Art Week features top notch exhibitions, featuring the work of artists such as Douglas Gordon, Jörg Sasse, Agathe Fleury, Wael Shawky, Arno Brandlhuber, Alfredo Jaar, Paul Mc Carthy, Michael Sailstorfer, Heinz Hajek-Halke, Cy Twombly, Morton Bartlett, Hans-Peter Feldmann, and Guy Ben-Ner. Many of the partners, whose exhibition dates were planned long in advance, have organised additional special events to mark Berlin Art Week, including artist conversations, panel discussions, performances and concerts.

The artistic spectrum will be complemented by the art fairs abc and PREVIEW BERLIN Art Fair.

Featuring 126 galleries from 19 countries, this years abc has also invited New York's Artist Space to hold a bazaar and two interventions: the organization, founded in 1972 by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to foster young artists, explores new forms of production, the relationship between the art market and institutions, and the presentation of art. For the bazaar, Artist's Space has chosen 27 participants – publishers, cinemas, film distributors, architects, record labels, urban planners – to present their projects in the entrance hall of the Station (Luckenwalder Straße) in a space with over 3000 square meters. For the interventions, Artist Space presents the work of the design collective Metahaven and has invited community media center and gallery Mexicali Rose.

At PREVIEW BERLIN, international newcomers and established galleries show their offerings at Hangar2 at the former Tempelhof Airport Berlin. In addition, for the first time this year solo walls will present a focused overview of the work of several emerging artists. With Focus Academy, PREVIEW BERLIN 2012 will allow graduates from eight German art academies to present their work, providing them the opportunity to encounter the art market. Furthermore, PREVIEW BERLIN Art Fair will feature video art in a prominent venue: with the support of Sony Center Berlin, participating galleries will have the opportunity to present select works on 28 square meter LED video wall at Potsdamer Platz to the urban audience.

With enormous creativity and verve, the partners offer an exciting week for the contemporary art world, an event that soon establish itself as a fixture on Berlin's art calendar.
