Aaperto is a series of art events including exhibitions and studio visits organized by GoArt!. It concentrates on an expanding group of local and international emerging art talent and focuses on urban development scenes. The former railway area behind the Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum for the Present, the latest hotspot of the gallery scene in Berlin, is only one example – a future “in place” for living, working and culture. The show Wilde Hasen (wild rabbits) is hosted by Tape Modern in Tape Berlin. The show title is derived from its location within the former Berlin wall zone. The artistic themes presented reflect psychological, political or geographical changes and conflicts, often mingling reality and fiction.
