The Berlin Sessions


From February 2017 onwards, KW Institute for Contemporary Art will organize a series of monthly public talks in collaboration with various institutions and organizations located in Berlin. The series entitled The Berlin Sessions will explore the fabric of cultural producers in the city by inviting one Berlin-based speaker to give a presentation on another cultural producer that he/she finds inspiring. The goal of the lecture series is to highlight the work of Berlin-based creatives from the perspective of their peers; to map connections between the various producers and fields and to strengthen the existing networks between locally based artists, authors, musicians, performers, researchers and other creative producers. Every month, a series of lectures will be hosted and co-organized in collaboration with a different institution in Berlin, such as DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program, Berlinische Galerie, among others. The series will travel and will be hosted by the partner organizations at their premises and at KW.
