Art Berlin Contemporary (in short "ABC) opened its 7th edition last Thursday. The fair – that suggests itself as an art exhibition – has been directed by Maike Cruse for the second time and presents 111 galleries, of which most are based in Germany. Known for offering a big selection of large scale works, ABC continues to show extensive installations and sculptures. Even painters spread out through the exhibition space, such as the up-and-coming American artist Luc Fuller (Rod Barton), who we interviewed this year in June (read the interview here).

A surprise of this year's edition is the fair's move to bring performance art into focus, with John Bock (Sprüth Magers) making French Toasts and Kerim Seiler (Grieder Contemporary) hanging sheets to dry. Additionally, there is a continuous program of ongoing performances and theatre events throughout the four exhibition days. Another trend, which has gained popularity at Art Cologne as well, is the collaboration of two galleries presenting one artist. While most galleries present single artist positions,  Sprüth Magers is showing four.
