PREVIEW BERLIN ART FAIR 2012In its eighth edition, the PREVIEW BERLIN ART FAIR expanded its dynamic profile: In Hangar2 of Berlin's former Tempelhof Airport, established galleries showed their promising artistic positions alongside international newcomers. For the first time ever, there were also solo walls, with a focus continuing to placed on emerging artists. This survey allowed the PREVIEW BERLIN to reflect what makes the Berlin art landscape so unique from an international perspective, allowing the latest trends to be visualised.
This year, the PREVIEW BERLIN was held for the first time within the framework of the newly launched BERLIN ART WEEK (11.-16.9.2012), uniting under one umbrella the exhibition format abc – art berlin contemporary as well as the most important institutions of contemporary art in Berlin (National Gallery, Society of Friends of the National Gallery, KW, Berlinische Galerie, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein [n.b.k.], Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst [NGBK] e.V., c/o Berlin, Haus der Kulturen der Welt and Akademie der Künste). With the BERLIN ART WEEK, participants' profiles were sharpened, synergies created and energies pooled to strengthen confidence in Berlin as an art location.
With the FOCUS ACADEMY, the PREVIEW BERLIN has been turning to art universities since 2009 in a new format. In 2012, the graduates of eight German art academies participated. The intention is to offer these artists the opportunity to show their work to a large art community at the moment of transition from university studies to artistic independence, allowing them to gain initial experience on the art market. In addition to the Bauhaus University Weimar, the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design Kiel and the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg, all of which were already represented at the art fair last year, Giebichenstein Castle Halle, the Art University Kassel, the Berlin University of the Arts, the HfG Offenbach and the Berlin Weissensee School of Art participated in the 2012 FOCUS ACADEMY.
In addition, the PREVIEW VIDEO SCREENING offered selected artists the opportunity to present their video works to an urban audience at the Sony Center Berlin.
