In two hangars of the historical Tempelhof Airport the international art fair art berlin takes place from 27–30 September 2018. Since its decommissioning the Tempelhof Airport became a central location in Berlin for a variety of cultural activities.
The second edition of art berlin offers the international art world with around 120 galleries from 21 countries a comprehensive overview of contemporary positions while also showcasing works of Classic Modernism. The galleries present highlights from their programs in solo presentations. There are also special presentations offering the opportunity to provide a more comprehensive introduction to an artist. Galleries can also present a thematic juxtaposition of works and positions. BMW supports the second edition of the art fair as an official partner with a VIP Shuttle Service.
