Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, unified Germanys new capital city has experienced an extraordinary renaissance and a triumphant return to the ranks of Europes tastemaking cities. New Berlin has not only attracted contemporary artists formerly based in the regions of Cologne, Hamburg, and Dusseldorf, but many internationally renowned artists as well.
"Berlin Art Now" explores the mindsets, mentalities, and working practices of twenty-three painters and sculptors whose work is now shaping Berlins burgeoning art scene. The city itself plays an integral role in each artists style, distinguishing Berlins resident artist culture from those of other Western European cities. With text by Mark Gisbourne of the Courtauld Institute in London and photographs of both the artists and the city by noted portraitist Jim Rakete, "Berlin Art Now" poses (and answers) the question, Why Berlin, and why now?
