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.

Walker Evans. A Life’s Work

Until 9 November 2014

Walker Evans (1903–1975) was one of the great personalities of 20th century photography, being an exponent of what is called the “documentary style”. His work, which spans a period of over fifty years, will be represented by well over 200 original prints from the years 1928 to 1974, taken mostly from the considerable private collection of Clark and Joan Worswick, but also from various German collections.

The Vikings

Warriors and conquerors, sailors, traders, farmers and highly specialized craftspeople: from the ninth to eleventh century the Vikings dominated the North and Baltic Seas. They travelled from Russia up to the Byzantine Empire, established settlements on the coasts of Greenland and North America. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the largest surviving Viking warship with a length of 37 metres.
