A room with a view

An abandoned hotel in the middle of the city – completely empty and gutted. 33 rooms stripped down to the core. Come on Berlin, show us some magic! In collaboration with ZEIT Magazin, GALERIE CRONE has invited 33 international emerging artists to present their work on a total of 5 floors and turn “The Vacancy” into a 1,400-sqm art exhibition before expansion and rebuilding begin. Temporary space at its best! The participating artists each have their individual approach to the still existing architecture and the interim presentation. Their artistic media include paintings, sculptures, photographs, video art, installations or live performances and their work explicitly corresponds with its surroundings and the temporary state of the building. The folks from Parker Bowles and Prince Charles have also set up shop and are serving drinks and little snacks. The Vacancy has been opening its doors since October 1st and the exhibition is only on show until next Monday. So if you haven’t made it there yet, we highly recommend to pay a visit to Friedrichstr.124 as fast as you can.
THE VACANCY | Friedrichstr. 124, 10117 Berlin | 01.-19.10.(!), Tue-Fri 1-8pm, Sat+Sun 11am-8pm | Facebook
