General | Latest Info

Though the low-ish cost of living gives young artists room to experiment, old poor but sexy maxims no longer apply in Berlin ART scene, which has witnessed a slow but steady flow of collectors and capital from the West since the citys Reunification in the 1990s. While gallery owners and artists remain ambivalent about these developments, there is no question that world-class talent continues to emerge at very best ART museums and galleries in Berlin. Theres still evidence of the citys scruffy underside around Kreuzberg and Neukolln, of course, and a smattering of ART collectives are thriving there, too-notably aggressively humanist Centre for Political Beauty. And let's be honest, many camera-wielding tourists appear to come to Berlin just for the citys first-rate street ART scene. Wed highly recommend planning a trip to coincide with one of many brilliant Arts events in Berlin-perhaps for Berlin ART Week in September, or Gallery Weekend in late April, when dozens of the hottest galleries open their doors to the public. Our top tip: dont arrive hungry, lest vernissages free-flowing wine get the better of you. Instead, pair trek out to well-heel West Berlin with a meal at a restaurant in Berlin's Chinatown, like Lon Mens Noodle House. Arguably Berlins best-know gallery space, Contemporary Fine Arts has been promoting idiosyncratic ART from around the world since 1992. Run by Nicole Hackert and Bruno Brunnet, CFAs programme blend outre and fresh with big names in their airy Chipperfield-design building near Museum Island. The diversity of the roster means that at any one time, youre likely to see works by everyone from Berlins infamous Jonathan Meese to Georg Baselitz, Marc Brandenburg, late Norbert Schwontkowski, Gert and Uwe Tobias, Daniel Richter and Katja Strunz, as well as Brits including Sarah Lucas, Peter Doig and Chris Ofili. House in a former margarine factory, Kunst Werke has been a major non-profit showcase for new talent since the early 1990s. Today curator Ellen Blumenstein promised more emollient, audience-friendly programmes, insisting institutions move back from realms of esoteric and baffling and return to engaging with the public. A lively programme of exhibitions, film screenings, talks and presentations means that, 20 years on, KW remains very much at the heart of Berlin's cultural agenda. This mile-long section of Berlin Wall preserves paintings made on the Walls ' eastern Side when it was brought down, and is one of the largest open-air permanent ART exhibits in the world. East Side Gallery, featuring more than 100 murals, graffiti artworks, slogans and tags executed by a collective of Berlin artists, is a memorial to the pioneering street spirit that buzzed around the city during Reunification. Today, gallery artworks are almost as anachronistic as the Wall itself and are in constant danger of vanishing under duress of elements, lack of resources for restoration and countless scribbles from tourists, graffiti artists and vandals.

Washington, DCOne of most significant presentations, in terms of range and quality, of 19-Century German Painting ever to be shown in the United States will be on view at the National Gallery of Art, East Building, 10 June through 3 September 2001. Spirit of Age: Nineteenth-Century Paintings from the Nationalgalerie, Berlin provides a survey of 19-Century German Painting, and the history of Germany itself, through 75 of the finest works by 35 artists from the Collection of Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin. The museum, which opened in 1876 to House Prussian King's Collection of Paintings and sculpture, is currently closed for renovations as part of a larger reorganization of all Berlin's Museums. In December 2001, when the Museum reopen, it will display for first time since 1939 the complete collection of work for which it was build. This enlightening exhibition offers American audiences a unique opportunity to study works of important German painters who are rarely represented in North American collections, say Earl. Powell III, director, National Gallery of Art, Washington. It is also a timely reminder of period a century ago when Berlin, then the fastest-growing metropolis in Europe, was, as it is again today, vital and exciting center for New Art. Works range from sublime canvases by Caspar David Friedrich and other Romantic painters to brilliantly observed paintings by naturalists in the mid-Century; from richly detailed cityscapes of Berlin by Eduard Gaertner and Johann Erdmann Hummel to masterpieces by Adolph Menzel and powerful works by Max Beckmann and Lovis Corinth-work that startle Berlin viewers Century ago and usher in New Age of expressionism in German Art. While the emphasis is on German Painting of the period, important works by Paul Cezanne, Gustave Courbet, Edouard Manet, and Claude Monet are also include. These Impressionist masterpieces represent some of the most progressive Museum acquisitions in any country at that time and reflect the international spirit that continues in Berlin Museums today. Romantic Landscapes: Romanticism finds its most compelling expression in 19-Century Germany in the music of Beethoven, writings of Goethe, and the Art of Landscape Painter David Caspar Friedrich. Friedrich rejects conventional formula of recent Neoclassical Painting in favor of depicting nature and German landscape, often with emphasis on spirituality, nationalism, and the past. He created a visual vocabulary of symbolic imagery and typically featured solitary figures placed in lonely settings amidst ruins, cemeteries, mountains, and frozen and rocky waters of the Baltic coast. He endows inanimate objects with symbolic values, as seen in expressive trees and the evocative moonlight of Man and Woman Contemplating Moon. In Oak Tree in Snow, Friedrich uses Oak Tree Lose in the wintry expanse of Snow as a vehicle for religious and patriotic expression. Twenty-four paintings by Caspar David Friedrich are at the heart of the Nationalgalerie's Collection and constitute the largest number of his works to be unite under one roof. Seven will be on view in the exhibition.

12. Brucke Museum

On 15 November 2019, an exhibition opens in Berlin on artists of Die Brucke and their Frames. It comprises work by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Erich Heckel, Emil Nolde, Otto Mueller and Max Pechstein, in original frames designed by artists. Like the Pre-Raphaelites, Die Brucke thought of frame and painting as one indivisible work of art, function of the frame being a link which bind painting to the interior where it hang. However, unlike PRB, who use symbolism and decorative geometry to present their work, these were 20th century artists, who turned to the archaic past for inspiration. Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Head of woman with mask, 1912, Albertinum, Dresden here, for example, is Karl Schmidt-Rottluffs Head of woman with a mask, which shares Picassos enthusiasm for early and tribal objects-and, just as painting returns to Cycladic sculpture and tribal masks for its origins, so the frame suggests its source in wave and ripple ornaments of 17 century German ebony Frames by rough undulations cut into its surface. Other frames have the flat profile of 15 century Netherlandish frame, with vertical or horizontal butt-joints rather than mitres, and finishes which include gilding, staining and roughly colouring directly on the surface of wood, so that-as with many Pre-Raphaelite frames-texture of visible grain looks back to more primitive use of material. Curated by Werner Murrer, this is a pioneering exhibition on the work of a group which saw image and its frame as synthesis-Gesamtkunstwerk. It will remain at Brucke Museum in Berlin until 15 March 2020 and then move to Buchheim Museum. The article which follow, also entitled Never Apart: Frames and Paintings by artists of Die Brucke, was written by Katrina Schultz, and was first published as Unzertrennlich. Rahmen und Bilder der Brucke-Kunstler in Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH, Museums Journal, Berlin & Potsdam, April 2019. The present translation is by Dr Jeremy Gaines Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, dorfecke, & detail, 1910, o / c, 76. 5 x 84. 5 cm., & Detail, Brucke Museum, Berlin this is not an evocation of abstract sculpture, but a description of carved frame on Karl Schmidt-Rottlus 1910 painting Village Corner. While the terms used are not particularly familiar to us, they also allude to the fact that writing and speaking about frames in the customary vocabulary of art history is not easy. Discussing Frames is unusual and poses a challenge. When visiting an exhibition, few viewers consciously look at frames, and images on postcards or in exhibition catalogues are usually shown unframed-or frames are cropped in photos. Yet the frame is not just ubiquitous, it has an important function for artwork: it acts as an intermediary between inside world and outside, it creates and demarcates boundary between art and the interior where it hang, and it upgrades object by designating it work of art.
