With Ich kenne kein Weekend. The Archive and Collection of René Block Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.), in partnership with Berlinische Galerie and Lentos Kunstmuseum in Linz, is dedicating a show to the manifold and interdisciplinary work of gallery owner and exhibition maker René Block. Block’s career began in 1964 in West Berlin, where he opened his gallery with the legendary show Neodada, Pop, Décollage, Kapitalistischer Realismus, presenting at the time unknown artists such as Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Joseph Beuys, Nam June Paik or Wolf Vostell. Being one of the pioneers to promote intermedia art, Fluxus and happenings, René Block played a decisive role in the Neo-Avantgarde. The show is accompanied by a program of events. There is an extensive publication with the collected texts by René Block and a detailed chronology. The publication, edited by Marius Babias, Birgit Eusterschulte, and Stella Rollig is published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne.
