This Sunday saw the longest queue ever and for a change it was not in front of Berghain. After a three year hiatus the Ngoro Ngoro group exhibition in Weißensee was back and it was again a huge success and magnet for art enthusiasts and the art-curious. Full disclosure: the place had a pool – so every other exhibition didn’t really stand a chance that weekend…
Jokes aside, the group exhibition is one of the biggest, independently organized ones that we have seen here and the diversity of the works and artists presented alone made the whole event worth a visit for pretty much everyone. The hidden backyard that is a shared space of gallery owners and artists also managed to create a bit of a festival atmosphere with drinks and food, and it was a quite family-friendly, which was embraced by the visitors.
Spread over 6000m2 you could explore several buildings, countless rooms and yards, as well as the Sexauer Gallery that were full of artworks by a big variety of artists and galleries that we can’t even begin to talk about that in detail. The admission was free, the event is solely financed through a beautiful edition of 7 artworks that come in a box set and that is still available here.
If you didn’t make it in, or if you want to be reminded of this amazing art show we took a few impressions for you. We hope it’s not gonna be another 3 years before we can see this amazing exhibition again.
