n.b.k. Berlin Vol. 12 – These Are the Only Times You Have Known

These Are the Only Times You Have Known
presents the work of 11 international artists who were awarded the Berlin Senate’s Visual Arts Grant.The range of artistic positions they represent reflects the diversity of artistic forms of expression in Berlin and includes the examination of different layers of time, hidden narratives, and issues of belonging and performativity. The search for meaning in the present is an element shared by all of the artistic works presented, whose spectrum ranges from paintings, photographs, prints, and video installations to virtual reality techniques. The title These Are the Only Times You Have Known underscores the contemporaneity of the positions assembled in the exhibition, while at the same time pointing to the individual artistic achievements, each of which formulates questions about the present, past, and future in its own way.

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition
These Are the Only Times You Have Known.

The publication can be purchased at local bookshops, via the website of Buchhandlung Walther König, and at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Members of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein can buy the book at n.b.k. for the special price of 15.00 Euro.
