Carsten Nicolai: Reflektor Distortion, through 28 May, Eigen + Art

Nicolai's latest minimalist installation plays with perception by manipulating the reflective and distorting properties of water through the use of light, sound and vibration.

Daniel Buren: Paintings 1966–1969 | Bettina Pousttchi: Ceramics, 29 April through 16 July, Buchmann Galerie

Early examples of Buren's stripe paintings in The Buchmann Box are accompanied by ceramic wall works by Pousttchi which make reference to blackened oak beams, in the Buchmann Galerie.

Mark Wallinger: Mark Wallinger | Iman Issa: Heritage Studies, 30 April through 28 May, Carlier Gebauer

Following the debut of Wallinger's new series of Id paintings at Hauser & Wirth London, a second selection of his Rorschach-style self-portraits goes on show at Carlier Gebauer, along with sculpture and text works from Iman Issa's ongoing series of intstallations, Heritage Studies.

Claudia Comte: Catch the Tail by the Tiger, 29 April through 29 May, König Galerie | St Agnes  

Comte's combination of cool geometric minimalism and warm, curved wooden forms are presented in an installation specially reconfigured for the interior of the former Catholic church of St Agnes.

Wolfgang Tillmans: Studio, 29 April through 4 June at Galerie Bucholz

While Tillmans makes his studio the subject of his latest exhibition at Galerie Bucholz, the artist has also repurposed his own Between Bridges Berlin exhibition space into Meeting Space, an open forum for discussing, within the art community, current issues including the migrant crisis, the EU and the rise of right-wing politics. The space will also host a series of events, the latest details of which can be found here.
