After a successful year in 2010, the EYEOUT Gallery Weekend Berlin iPhone App is back, just in time for the event, taking place from April 29 to May 1, 2011. The mobile art guide lists participating galleries, their exhibitions and artists, as well as exciting off-spaces and museums. The App is available for download now, completely free of charge.

With EYEOUT, visitors can plan Gallery Weekend in advance. Interesting exhibitions can be flagged as favorites for a tour, and personal notes can be added. All 44 participating galleries are listed with their exhibitions, artists and events - including background information and images of the works, viewable in full-screen mode.
Whoever wants to explore city's hottest spring art weekend without planning in advance can also use the app's navigation function to locate nearby venues. Users can search for specific artists and find out where they're on view in museums and private collections beyond the scope of Gallery Weekend.
Intelligently programmed and thoroughly thought through, EYEOUT's software makes handling intuitive and user-friendly; it also seamless integrates into iPhone functions. Beyond its special Gallery Weekend edition, EYEOUT is also available for the cities of Berlin and Zurich as well as the Rhineland. This year, additional editions are planned for Brussels and Paris.
The man behind EYEOUT is the curator and former gallerist Jan Winkelmann, who developed the app with software developer and art collector Ivo Wessel and Berlin-based design office Ta-Trung.
