Issue #4 A letter from the editor

With the New Year comes a new format for the berlin art journal—apocalypse related? We hope not. We’re taking cues from McCluhan in 2012, sticking true to our form. So the terrain remains familiar; we’ve just kicked up the pace a bit. The journal will now come bi-weekly, broadening the net in order to keep up with the scene.

For January’s double feature we’ve taken a glimpse at the infrastructure that keeps Berlin’s museums and galleries afloat. Kimberly Bradley gets the backstory on ex-head of the Friends of the National Gallery, Peter Raue, who pioneered private museum funding in Germany. Alonso Dominguez takes an exclusive peak at Vibeke Tandberg’s Beckett-inspired exhibition at Klosterfelde. April Lamm brings us for a sojourn on her favorite street. And I survey a selection of Berlin galleries’ underappreciated “number-twos.”
