From June 11 to August 08, 2010, at several locations in Berlin, the 6th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art has brought together numerous artistic positions on the present. The biennial was contextualized by an exhibition with works by Adolph Menzel (1815–1905), curated – at the invitation of Kathrin Rhomberg – by the American art historian Michael Fried in cooperation with the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) and the Kupferstichkabinett | Museum of Prints and Drawings of the National Museums in Berlin.
Michael Schmidt’s (*1945 in Berlin) photographic works were the first artistic contribution to the biennial and accompanied it in the public realm and the media throughout its duration.
The 6th Berlin Biennial for contemporary art was organized by the KW Institute for Contemporary Art.
