We’re excited to announce this year’s curatorial team behind the program series In Medias Res: Media, (Still) Moving. Dennis Brzek, at the invitation of Junia Thiede, joins Fluentum as Guest Curator. Together they have co-curated an extensive exhibition and project series that is dedicated to a concrete investigation of the historically charged architecture of Fluentum’s grounds. Featuring a group exhibition as well as several solo exhibitions, both in parallel to a four-part publication series, the program marks the first time Fluentum will focus on the political, visual, and discursive dimensions inscribed into its building’s history.


We’re excited to announce the launch of the bilingual publication Sender and Receiver – Christian Jankowski in conjunction with the eponymous exhibition by Christian Jankowski at Fluentum.

The polyphony of essays, descriptions of works, and personal accounts contextualize and further develop the contents channeled in the exhibition. Here, a key moment from Jankowski’s three-decade-long artistic practice is explored, reflecting on the complex appearances of transmission processes and moments of disruption in a mediatized society. The contributions are accompanied by extensive photo series, some of which feature material from Jankowski’s archive that has been published for the first time.

With essays by Robert Eikmeyer, Wenjie Sun, Junia Thiede and Annette Tietenberg. Published by Kerber Verlag.


Due to the coronavirus shutdown in Berlin, we have to close Christian Jankowski's show Sender and Receiver.


Fluentum's founder and director Markus Hannebauer participated in the symposium The Art of the Moving Image in Digital Times on the occasion of the 4th edition of the international film and art festival Kino der Kunst in Munich (October 27 - November 1, 2020). Markus was also a jury member for this year's Project Pitch Award, which supports young European artists and filmmakers to produce new works.


On the occasion of the Berlin Art Week 2020, Fluentum was pleased to open Sender and Receiver – a solo show with Christian Jankowski.


Unfortunately, we had to cancel our exhibition with Emilija Škarnulytė because of the coronavirus shutdown.


On the occasion of the Berlin Art Week 2019, Fluentum was pleased to open Speaking Images – its first exhibition of works from the collection.


On the occasion of the Gallery Weekend Berlin 2019, Fluentum was pleased to inaugurate its collection publicly with a solo exhibition by Dutch artist Guido van der Werve (born 1977).
