It’s Berlin Art Week, and unusually for 2020, art fairs, a biennale, and a range of exhibitions are all opening at once in the German capital. But is Berlin still the thriving art centre it’s been over the last two decades? We talk to the Canadian artist and adoptive Berliner AA Bronson about participating in one of the big shows opening this week, at the legendary Berghain nightclub, and about his experience of living in the city. We hear from the veteran art dealer Thomas Schulte about Berlin’s return to normality. And, in this episode’s Work of the Week, we talk to the artist Jadé Fadojutimi about an Untitled painting by Laura Owens in the Tate Collection.
