Organizers of the twelfth iteration of the Berlin Biennale have announced the participation of eighty-two artists and collectives. The event, scheduled to take place between June 11 and September 18 of this year, is being curated by interdisciplinary French-Algerian artist Kader Attia and is titled “Still Present!” The Biennale will span a half-dozen locations including Akademie der Künste, Hamburger Bahnhof, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and Stasi Headquarters.

Participating artists, including Forensic Architecture, Omer Fast, and Nil Yalter, will investigate the theme of “global capitalism’s frantic and destructive race toward production,” according to a press release. Also at issue are subjects such as global warming and decolonialism and humanity’s role in these. “Since the onset of modernity, our planet has endured successive and ruinous changes that have accelerated alarmingly since the start of the third millennium,” declares the press release. “The place to which we have arrived today is not by chance: It is the result of historical formations constructed over centuries.”
