“We force our audience a little bit”

Ivo Wessel and Olaf Stüber, the duo behind Videoart at Midnight, say they’ve found a way to give art films the audiences they deserve – by bringing them out of the gallery and into the cinema.

Collector Ivo Wessel and gallerist Olaf Stüber come together once a month at Babylon Mitte with one selected artist whose work is shown on the big screen at midnight. Having developed a loyal following, their programme supports the most interesting undercurrents in the Berlin art scene, from Chicks on Speed to David Panos, and they do it all without charging for entry.

The next edition, on April 12, features with a trilogy of videos from Annika Eriksson, who will be present for a question and answer session after the screening
