With Berlin Art Week and more, this coming week is packed full of art openings and events – here are some tips for your calendar. For the first time, C/O Berlin is hosting a retrospective by Agentur Ostkreuz co-founder Harald Hauswald, featuring 250 of his photos capturing GDR life (opening 12.09.2020). Meanwhile, in another first, resident artists of the red-brick Werkhof L.57 in Moabit are opening up their studios for a group show including works by Konstantin Grcic and Katharina Grosse (11.–13.09). Over at Galerie Tanja Wagner, a new solo exhibition by painter Grit Richter explores the concept of collective memory through highly-textured abstract works (opening 11.09 18h). Taking care of the culinary side of things, currently-closed KW Institute is joining forces with the Slavs and Tatars collective to open the Pickle Bar, a Slavic take on an apéritivo bar where guests are offered drinks and fermented foods during three evening rituals (11.–13.09). In Friedrichshain, “Palm Down”, the new solo show by artist and noted Instagrammer Andy Kassier is opening at Hanz.Studio (09.–13.09), while for Gallery Weekend Berlin (11.–13.09) the group exhibition K60 will see Reinickendorf’s Wilhelm Hallen open to the public for the first time (from 06.09. 12h). See you there! (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Tanja Wagner, Andy Kassier & Felicity Hammond)
