DEEDS CALENDAR: Berlin Art Week 2023 – If the Berlin Wind Blows My Flag. Artistic Scenes in West Berlin before the Fall of the Wall – daadgalerie, n.g.b.k., Galerie im Körnerpark + Akademie der Künste | bis 14.01.2024

“If the Berlin Wind Blows My Flag” takes a look at the artistic scenes in West Berlin before the fall of the Wall through the history of the DAAD’s Berlin Artists-in-Residence Programme. As part of the residency programme, international cultural workers were invited to the city from 1963 onwards to save West Berlin from “cultural isolation”. An exhibition in three chapters – at the n.b.k., the daadgalerie and the Galerie im Körnerpark – as well as events at the Akademie der Künste shed light on the role the programme played in the formation and networking of artistic practices during the Cold War and question its cultural-political orientation. The focus is on the activities of the Berlin Artists-in-Residence Programme, which was founded 60 years ago by the US-American Ford Foundation and continued by the DAAD from 1965 onwards, especially with regard to the politically motivated background of the intended internationalisation of the West Berlin art scene.
