Catskill Art Society will screen the "Berlin" episode from Season 9 of Art in the Twenty-First Century, featuring artists Olafur Eliasson, Natalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Hiwa K, and Susan Philipsz. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Tina Kukielski, the Executive Director and Chief Curator and the episode's producers from RAVA films.
A city still in the midst of a post–Cold War cultural and economic rebirth, since the 1990s Berlin has become a haven for artists from all over the world—a free zone where experimentation, individual expression, and international influences converge. From creating large-scale public projects to intimately personal ones, the artists in this episode demonstrate the diversity of practice and sensibilities in the German capital, expose its complicated history of war and migration, and convey hopes for finding systems that foster a better tomorrow.
This event is produced in collaboration with Art21, a nonprofit global leader in art education, producing preeminent films on today’s leading visual artists and education programs that inspire creativity worldwide.
