    The illuminated writing in warped, post-internet-aesthetics CAPTCHA font stretches over the wall of EIGEN + ART Lab's exhibiton space. "Is anybody home lol" is both the title of this large site-specific neon piece and of the latest exhibition by the Swiss artist collective !Mediengruppe Bitnik...

    Berlin's gallery olympics have just began. Anxious from all the choices I had to make (50 galleries in 5 hours...can't do...or?), I headed out with a list of 15 places I would visit under any and all circumstances, despite the hysterical weather that kept ruining the day. The Gallery Weekend Guide booklet...

Things are already starting to heat up, so we strongly advice to visit this week's openings and avoid big crowds next week wherever possible. Important...

    Complete with installation, wall painting, sculpture, and even performance, Christopher Kline’s show O.K. takes a multimedia look at the history and culture of his hometown Kinderhook, New York. Kinderhook is rich with folklore and cultural history, staking its claim as the site of origin for The Legend of...

    Gallery Weekend just turned ten! I won't hide the excitement and enormous expectations I had at the yesterday's press converence and the gallery tour. The organisation (this year with Maike Cruse in charge) made it more fancy and intimate, inviting relevant press to Pauly Saal. No lunchboxes, no firecrackers;...

    So we are through Armory, Frieze NY and Basel Hong Kong in one week, and at least one Biennal, more mature, more self assured and some of us even more prosperous. This is the second part of the how to fuck things up, a series of realistic, idealistic, and maybe a bit illegal schemes to subvert and slowly overturn...

    So what has been going on? Berlin Art Week is getting ready for its second edition. It got bigger, better and if possible... Berlin_er! The 10 main institution partners, abc and Preview art fairs are now joined by ten temporary partners, chosen by the judicious qualities of Monica Bonvicini, Claudia Wahjudi (Zitty),...

    Unlike "director’s cut", this new series, which might or might not become a thing in Bpigs, will try to present readers with a shortened version of events: a dense mix of popular oppinion, marked usually with “I heard” and personal ones marked, logically, with “I think”. There...

    What a week! The massive Gallery Week roster ensured that there was plenty of good, definitely some bad, and always some ugly. Hopefully our survival guide and sneak peak helped you make some well-informed decisions about how to divide your time, but now it’s time to reflect on everything we saw and did. This...

    What a weird, beautiful, overwhelming day. Attending the Gallery Weekend preview for the press definitely gave me some material to discuss and/or brag about. Since I wasn't familiar with this kind of event (fresh Berlin transplant!), they already got me at coffee & croissants and cute lunch bags, and it was...

    According to a poster I saw on the street there were three Turner Prize winners having a solo show opening this gallery weekend: the coo-coo lady in Bortolozzi, the painting genius in Johnen and one more who now escapes me. It also escapes me who got nominated  GW King and King  in Autocenter (I am guessing...
