For this year’s Berlin Art Week, the Soho House outpost in the German capital became a hotspot for artists, collectors and creatives curious about the latest offerings from the art world. A special installation by Max Siedentopf decked the pool, and this weekend we’re hosting a Tiny Art Market and a silent art dinner by the Finnish artist Nina Backman to celebrate the biggest event on the Berlin art calendar. For now, let’s revisit the highlights of the opening night, which took place on the House’s rooftop, supported by Porsche.
Turning the spacious terrace into a lively dance floor, DJ Juba opened the evening, and later Panorama residents Gabrielle Kwarteng and Jennifer Cardini got behind the decks. Plus, there were live performances by Jamaican-American rapper Zebra Katz and R&B artist Hawa, who some might remember singing at Telfar’s AW20 show.
Guests enjoyed a few Picantes and other classic House cocktails on the sunbeds and by the pool, with Siedentopf’s hand sculptures signifying undying optimism in the shimmering water. The event was supported by Porsche, who are also offering a shuttle service of Taycans between the House and the fair over Berlin Art Week. So, in case anyone wakes up at the House feeling slightly disoriented the next day, there’s an easy way to get back to your art duties.
