about Architecture+Art Weekend in Berlin
Architecture+Art Weekend 2019 / 31. August + 1. September 2019
The Festival “Architecture + Art Weekend”
About the 1st Architecture + Art Weekend 2018
The “Architecture + Art Weekend” presents urban interventions, site-specific installations and artistic positions in Berlin.
The “Architecture + Art Weekend” is an independent event that takes place on a weekend in the year. Berlin institutions, galleries, project spaces and places of the independent scene open their doors and present their program to a broad audience. At the center of the event are site-specific installations and exhibitions that use art to make spaces tangible and sensitize perception. The festival focuses on urban interventions, interior installations and artistic positions in areas that are not normally accessible to the public.

In the calendar year 2019 are invited to participate venues, whose planned exhibitions correspond to this year’s topic “Beyond Bauhaus“. The combination of architecture and art is in harmony with the principles of the BAUHAUS school. The jubilee year “100 years BAUHAUS” with its numerous events, offers an excellent framework to explore the interplay of art and architecture from the perspective of the present.
The participating locations design their exhibitions independently. Galerie aquabitArt (Berlin-Mitte) as Festival Center provides the coordinative and administrative infrastructure.

Why is the “Architecture + Art Weekend” important?
The development of technology society has changed the relationship between architecture and art. In this context, we open a discussion on how the two disciplines can influence each other and bring about a change of perspective that will sustainably improve our present. The festival has a clear Berlin connection, bringing together places and institutions that use artistic interventions to direct the attention of city dwellers to social and urban processes, making them immediately tangible. That creates added value!
Conceptually, the festival stands at the interface between “Gallery Weekend“ and “Tag der Architektur” and enriches the cultural offer of Berlin across all districts and in the long term.
