Berghain will reopen as an art gallery in September, it has been announced.
From 9th September, those wishing to visit the hallowed club will be able to book guided tours through its main room, Panorama Bar and Säule, where works from 85 Berlin-based artists will be on display. Among the artists featured in the exhibition are Wolfgang Tillmans, Olafur Eliasson and Tacita Dean, as well as Sandra Mujinga, Christine Sun Kim and Shirin Sabahi.
The exhibition has been curated by art collectors Christian and Karen Boros, and will include photography, sculpture, painting, video, sound, performances and installations. All proceeds raised through the exhibition will go toward keeping Berghain float as the pandemic keeps clubs around the world from opening as normal.
Speaking to The Art Newspaper, Christian Boros said: “For three months during the confinement period we were speaking to artists on the phone every day.We wanted to show this incredible artistic production. Berlin was frozen, so why not think differently? Why not work together?”
