The Berlin Biennale announced its artist list today. Featuring 120 artists, as well as a few more mysteriously listed in a category called “Not in the Berlin Biennale,” this year’s biennial will be curated by the collective DIS and is titled “The Present in Drag.” It will run between June 4 and September 18.

There’s still little word about what this year’s biennial is about, but the list hints that major themes will be advertising, digital technology, and the Internet, all of which appear in DIS’s videos and photographs. (A tip: the Berlin Biennale currently has what appear to be some new works by DIS on its site.)

The full artist list follows below.
