Akademie der Künste, Hamburger Bahnhof, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Stasi-Zentrale. Campus für Demokratie


The 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is curated by Kader Attia in collaboration with Ana Teixeira Pinto, Đỗ Tường Linh, Marie Helene Pereira, Noam Segal, and Rasha Salti. The exhibition and program will span diverse venues in the city, offering a discursive space that bridges different fields of knowledge production. From June 11 to September 18, 2022 a polyphonic debate unfolds, convening artists, scholars, and activists to map the world with its ruptures and contradictions, create counter-trajectories to the colonial narrative, and collaboratively shape new forms of agency for the future.

The Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art spans several venues, including Akademie der Künste, Hamburger Bahnhof,  KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Stasi-Zentrale and Campus für Demokratie.
