Latest

Unusual insights into cultural history, often with spectacular findings and the latest research results, form the pillars in the Martin-Gropius-Bau programme alongside contemporary art and photography. Monographs of outstanding artists are as much the focus as current artistic positions.

Piet Mondrian. The Line

Until 6 December 2015

With his characteristic compositions of rectangles and black lines, Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) is regarded as one of the founders of abstract painting. He is considered to be a master of the composition of coloured areas. Through his method of strict reduction to the basic elements of painting, Mondrian created icons of classic modernism. A lesser-known fact, however, is that Mondrian started out by creating paintings in the impressionist style of the Hague School and explored different styles of art before lines and the organisation of image areas dominated his artistic creations.

From Hockney to Holbein
The Würth Collection in Berlin

From 11 September 2015

The Würth Collection is one of the largest private collections in Europe, containing more than 16,800 works of art. The most important of the classic modern artists are represented, as well as masterpieces from the Middle Ages and classic works of contemporary art. The unusual exhibition is a gain for the Kunstherbst Berlin. With more than 400 works of art of international significance, the collection will be presented to the public in a scope never previously seen, in an exhibition space of 5,000 square meters.

Orfeo

After Claudio Monteverdi
18 September to 4 October 2015

“Orfeo”, a collaboration between Susanne Kennedy, Suzan Boogaerdt, Bianca van der Schoot and Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, will be presented as a series of locations through which the audience walks individually. Monteverdi’s music is arranged and performed with collage and looping technology while spectators are being led in small groups through a variety of spaces: stations in Orpheus’ descent and his attempt to win back his lover.
