Program of the 5th Berlin Biennale


June 16, 2008

On Sunday, June 15, 2008, the 5th berlin biennial for contemporary art, curated by Adam Szymczyk and Elena Filipovic and entitled When things cast no shadow, closed after ten weeks. The biennial divided its time between day and night: By day it included an exhibition on view at four venues—KW Institute for Contemporary Art, the Neue Nationalgalerie, Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum, and the Schinkel Pavillon—with mostly newly commissioned works by 50 artists. By night it featured over 100 artists and thinkers in 63 nightly events—performances, lectures, film screenings, and workshops—under the title Mes nuits sont plus belles que vos jours held throughout the city in cooperation with different institutions and with the support of the FABA Foundation. The Schinkel Pavillon was the site of five alternating artist-curated solo exhibitions, the last of which will remain on view until June 29, 2008.
