Commissions

 

Alongside its exhibition program, KW Institute for Contemporary Art is continuously pushing beyond the confines of the physical building through its commission program. Throughout the years, these commissions have taken on numerous formats, varying from the infamous slide Valerio II (1998) of Carsten Höller to Renata Lucas’ intervention Kunst-Werke (Cabeça E Cauda De Cavalo, 2010), and Dan Graham’s pavilion (1999) which houses the Café Bravo. These commissions are produced in order to present a different temporality and dedication to art production, in which the environment and architecture of both institutionsKW and the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Artis challenged.
