Dorothee Bienert is the director of Galerie im Körnerpark and Galerie im Saalbau, Berlin Neukölln. Together with Kati Kivinen, director of Museum for Contemporary Art Kiasma Helsinki, Dorothee curated the exhibition Fragile Times. Supported by the Finnland-Institut Deutschland and hosted by the Galerie im Körnerpark, this timely exhibition opened at the beginning of July and will continue until the 18th of October 2020.
Climate change, environmental pollution and mass extinction are just some of the issues causing us anxiety. But even with the realisation that human activity is destroying the very basis of life on our planet, very few people are making lasting changes to their behaviour.
Galerie im Körnerpark is one of over 30 municipal galleries throughout Berlin and is part of the Kommunale Galerien Berlin network. This years KGB Kunstwoche (art week) will take place from Friday 28. August until Sunday 6. September 2020.
The Fragile Times exhibition is supported by the Finnish Institute in Germany.
Interview with Dorothee Bienert recorded by Michael Dooney on 18. August 2020 at the Café im Körnerpark, Berlin Neukölln.
