      1. Reader accompanying the 6th Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art (11.06.–08.08.2010), curated by Kathrin Rhomberg (one of the FORMER WEST curators), with artists (a mix of new names and more established figures spanning a number of generations) including: Olga Chernysheva, Ion Grigorescu, Petrit Halilaj, Georg Kuchar, Thomas Locher, Roman Ondak, Hans Schabus, Anna Witt, Renzo Martens, Mark Boulos, Phil Collins, Marcus Geiger, etc. The biennale took the issues of ‘reality’ and ‘realism’ as its starting point and the texts and conversations in this reader attempt to flesh out the complexities and tensions between the two. See in particular Rhomberg’s text and the conversation between Stefan Kaegi, Olaf Nicolai, Dieter Roelstraete, and Hito Steyerl titled ‘Persistent Suspicions: Talking Towards, Around, and Away from the “Real”’.
