A weekend so nice, they held it twice. This year, Berlin’s galleries rallied for a second, autumnal edition of the exhibition series, with several outposts sharing a thematic focus on new discoveries. Spike editor Isabella Zamboni, a newly-minted Berlin transplant by way of Milan, honed her sense of direction by exploring Gallery Weekend 2021.
