LONDON.- The Berlin exhibition was awarded the "Best Exhibition of the Year" prize at the "Leading Culture Destinations Awards 2018". The award was presented by an international jury in London on 28 September.

From 25 May to 5 August, Philippe Parreno presented a major solo exhibition at the Gropius Bau as part of the Berliner Festspiele's Immersion programme series. Starting from the spectacular atrium of the exhibition house, he designed a structure of light, sound, movement and objects that was controlled by a multiplying and mutating bacteria culture determining a dynamic script. The use of random methods allowed the exhibition to change over time. The exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue published by Buchhandlung Walther König.

The jury's reasoning for the award reads: "Philippe Parreno brings a solo and site-specific exhibition to the intricate galleries of Gropius Bau. This exhibition explores the various levels of 'existence' through a variety of media. Innovation and the power of various levels of immersion made this exhibition a truly unmissable destination."

Besides Philippe Parreno, Robert Rauschenberg's exhibition "Among Friends" at MOMA New York and "Keith Haring" at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam were nominated in the category "Best Exhibition".

Parreno's exhibition was the fourth exhibition in the series "Immersion" that the Berliner Festspiele have realized since 2016. In this series, the Berliner Festspiele present works that navigate the border between exhibition and performance. In cooperation with the Planetarium Hamburg, the next immersion project "The New Infinity" started on 26 September with artistic fulldome productions, which can currently be experienced in a mobile dome on Mariannenplatz in Kreuzberg until 14 October. Until 2020, visual artists, sound artists, filmmakers and game developers are invited to develop new art productions for planetariums as part of "The New Infinity".
