Since September 2019, the 11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art has been unfolding as a process through a series of lived experiences with exp. 1, exp. 2, and exp. 3. Now, in a fourth step conceived as an epilogue, the 11th Berlin Biennale will bring these experiences together with artistic participation from around the world.

The 11th Berlin Biennale’s epilogue The Crack Begins Within will open from 5 September to 1 November, 2020. In their diverse modes of articulating solidarity, vulnerability, and resistance, the contributions rise up to materialize the complicated beauty of life amidst the turbulent times we inhabit.

There are so many important and interesting artistic positions taking part in the 11th Berlin Biennale, but we would like to highlight the ones from Africa and the Global Diaspora. Find here a list of all artists and the venues where they exhibit their work:
