"Change" may serve as the mantra of a certain U.S. politician but it also does duty for Berlin’s art world, what with gallery spaces playing musical chairs, fairs swapping old directors for new, and the like. Yet one thing here is solid and growing: Gallery Weekend, the ultimate coordinated group opening that takes place every spring. This time around, Gallery Weekend took place May 2-4, 2008. Droves of collectors appeared, hosted by the 34 galleries who insiders say each paid €8,000 for the privilege of being included in the event, which is run by former Frankfurt Art Fair director Michael Neff.
