With the anniversary program series RE:VISION, the Kunstverein Tiergarten is celebrating 20 years of successful collaboration with international artists from a vast variety of disciplines.

All of the almost 1200 artists who have exhibited at Galerie Nord | Kunstverein Tiergarten over the past 20 years are invited to present one of their works in a limited and non-commercial publication. The entire edition of the book will become a room-book installation in Galerie Nord, which will be curated by the audience throughout the entire duration of the exhibition by (re)turning the pages. In addition, all artists represented are invited to exchange a book in the exhibition for an original artistic work. Traditional curatorial hierarchies will be broken up, as will conventional processes: a completely new exhibition will gradually emerge, culminating in an anniversary celebration at the end of the exhibition.

More information about the exhibition will follow soon!

The project is funded by the Fund for Presentations of Contemporary Visual Arts of the Senate Department for Culture and Social Cohesion Berlin.
