Kinderhook and Caracas: Omnibus

Looking back across 10 years, this rich collection shows what artist-run project spaces are capable of.

A show 10 years in the making, Omnibus commemorates every artist to appear in an exhibition at Kinderhook and Caracas over the past decade of its existence. It’s an astonishingly rich collection of Berlin’s young art talent – international but with a distinctly American flair.

There’s no programme to tell you who made what, all the better to just explore the space and, if you’re upstairs, crawl into the nooks and crannies to feast your eyes on a new sculptural oddity, resonant with energy and wit. Run by artists Sol Calero and Christopher Kline, many of the 80 featured names, such as Brent Wadden and Claudia Comte, have gone on to enjoy immense success. It’s a reminder of the importance of artist-run project spaces – more process-orientated than commercial – that provide a crucial stepping stone for young artists.

Kinderhook and Caracas is one of Berlin’s best. Although Omnibus might not have the same force as one of their standalone shows, a dash through this greatest hits compilation certainly pays off.
