    Welcome to this month's Letter from Berlin!

    We begin with Jac Leirner's exhibition in Berlin and invite you to explore our exhibition video. This weekend, Roman Ondak's performative work Swap will be activated at Frac Franche-Comté in Besançon. We reprint an excerpt from the artist's conversation on the work from 2011 with Udo Kittelmann. Ann Veronica Janssens is once again collaborating with Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and the dance company Rosas, with performances taking place at Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie, March 24-27. We introduce Ari Benjamin Meyers' large-scale public project, Rehearsing Philadelphia, which will begin the week of March 25, 2022, and culminate on Saturday, April 9, 2022 and reprint the artist's manifesto. On March 25, a film by Liam Gillick and Gelitin will premiere at the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival. In Reutlingen, Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen are participating in a group exhibition on time. We take Ryan Gander's new commission at Scarborough as occasion to look at the artist's recent public projects. Isa Melsheimer will open a solo presentation on Vassière Island, near Limoges. 

    We hope you enjoy our Letter from Berlin!

    Welcome to our Letter from Berlin!

    In anticipation of our upcoming exhibition with Jac Leirner, we look at her body of work made from vintage plastic bags begun in 1985. ARCOmadrid is in full swing and remains open through Sunday. We highlight Daniel Steegmann Mangrané's new series of holograms, as well as works by General Idea and AA Bronson in the fair's Anniversary section. Different notions of history are addressed in Christoph Keller's video work Anarcheology from 2014. And don't miss Thomas Demand's exhibition at the Centro Botín. We reprint a short interview in which Demand speaks about the exhibition architecture and introduce the accompanying pop-up book and Centro Botín's virtual site. Hito Steyerl was profiled in the New Yorker. Andrew Grassie and Rodney Graham participate in an exhibition on the artist studio at London's Whitechapel Gallery, to rave reviews. Simon Fujiwara's exhibition Once Upon a Who? is closing this Saturday while the artist's 2011 work entitled Letters from Mexico is now on view at the Hamburger Kunsthalle. And finally, the Reading Corner returns with a selection of books.

    We hope you enjoy our Letter from Berlin!
