The Berlin Biennale has released the artist list for its tenth edition, which opens on June 9 at various venues around the German capital. Curated by Gabi Ngcobo, this year’s Biennale is titled “We don’t need another hero” and focuses on artists who “confront the incessant anxieties perpetuated by a willful disregard for complex subjectivities.”

Curator Gabi Ngcobo (second from left) with her curatorial team. Team der 10. Berlin Biennale für zeitgenössische Kunst, v. l. From left to right: Thiago de Paula Souza, Gabi Ngcobo, Nomaduma Rosa Masilela, Yvette Mutumba, and Moses Serubiri.

The last edition of the Berlin Biennale, which was curated by DIS, featured an array of younger artists creating work mainly about the digital sphere. This year’s biennial seems to feature a more varied group of artists, including Ana Mendieta, Sondra Perry, and Mildred Thompson. Compared to the previous edition, which included 120 participants, it is significantly smaller: just 46 artists will be included this year.
