6th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art. What is Waiting Out There

The 6th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art what is waiting out there was curated by Kathrin Rhomberg, opened on June 10, 2010 and ended on August 8, 2010. At KW Institute for Contemporary Art, at Oranienplatz 17, at the Alte Nationalgalerie⎮Old National Gallery as well as three other locations, the exhibition presented artistic positions of contemporary art which centrally questioned the notion of presence and art’s relationship to it. In an attempt to visualize the disparate realities of today, the works on show—more than half of them new productions—mirrored the multiple ways in which art appropriates and produces the realities, which determine our presence. Also in its sixth edition, the Berlin Biennale served as a platform for discussions and perspectives that are fundamental for contemporary art. The exhibition as well as the accompanying program of discussions, film screenings and three days of performances at the Hebbel am Ufer (HAU) was met with great interest by a national and international audience and vividly discussed both by its visitors and the media.
