Painting is frequently pivotal to contemporary art discourse. Other genres seldom equal its ability to express returns and ructions, challenges and constant reformulations. In Berlin, painting has a solid tradition. While other places have repeatedly declared the genre dead, painting simply carried on in the divided city and carried on again after the Wall came down.

The exhibition “Paint it all!” is a bugle call and a love letter to recent painting in Berlin. Featuring ten outstanding artists, it presents 15 selected works as teasers rather than as a stock check. Plenty more awaits discovery.
