Where form meets function

As much of the fashion world will be in Berlin next week, it is worth remembering that BBB isn’t the only show in town.

The Berlin Biennale extends through August 8, 2010, with KW Institute of Contemporary Art acting as core venue. Emphasis is placed on the here and now, rejecting notions that contemporary art focuses too often on formal art-specific problems. Photography is the most frequent medium shown, though attempts are also made through the inclusion of 19th-century realist Adolf Menzel in the Old National Gallery to show a continuum over time.
