Art in Berlin 1945 until now. New presentation of the collection
18 Sep 2013 - 23 Jun 2014
The second half of the 20th century can no longer be presented as a sequence of styles; it is characterised instead by a simultaneity of numerous artistic approaches. Representational and abstract art exist in parallel, documentary and socially critical strategies stand alongside works that no longer reveal any visible reference to external reality. This presentation of the collection shows central works in an interdisciplinary fashion, interwoven to create exciting reciprocal dialogues. Due to the large number of international artists working in Berlin, the result is a comprehensive survey of art developments in the last decades pointing far beyond the city’s boundaries.
