5 Must-See Shows at Gallery Weekend Berlin 2024

Like clockwork, springtime in Berlin brings brighter skies, warmer temperatures, and a wave of must-see exhibitions for Gallery Weekend Berlin. This year, the event celebrates its 20th anniversary edition, taking place April 26–28, with over 90 presentations at more than 60 locations across the city.

Even as one of Berlin’s most important art events reaches an important milestone, its new director, Antonia Ruder, said the key to Gallery Weekend Berlin’s continued success is highlighting what’s fresh on the scene.

“My focus is on young galleries, and they also receive special attention in the communication of the event,” Ruder told ARTnews. “The young galleries are particularly important for the representation of young artists.” Not to be missed are the proverbial “new kids on the block,” Heidi and Molitor, two galleries founded in 2021 and 2022, respectively. Fitting with the celebratory air of this year’s Gallery Weekend, a handful of established spaces will have their own anniversaries: both Max Hetzler and Kicken are celebrating 50 years, while Klosterfelde Edition marks 35 years on the scene.

What would Gallery Weekend be without some treats for early birds? Alongside the 50 official galleries are a constellation of other spaces opening new exhibitions. Be sure to add the group show “Shudder Mornings” at the new Kreuzberg hotspot Cabin and Hannah Rose Stewart’s solo show “Apotheke” at Sandy Brown to your itinerary.

The champagne will soon be poured as the crowds pack in to see a mix of contemporary and historical shows. Before you throw on your spring gallery outfits and dash around the city, here are five must-see shows at Gallery Weekend Berlin 2024.
