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.

David Bowie

Extended until 24 August 2014

The international exhibition “David Bowie” of the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is here! The David Bowie retrospective creates a comprehensive audiovisual exhibition experience using multimedia technology at the most advanced technical level.
The curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh, was given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive. They selected approximately 300 objects that can be seen until 10 August at the Martin-Gropius-Bau of Berliner Festspiele. The exhibits demonstrate the visionary power of one of the most influential artists in recent music history. The Berlin years from 1976 to 1978 were among Bowie’s most productive ones. The exhibits show how Bowie has playfully overcome the borders between dream and reality, genres and genders.
The exhibition in Berlin is organized by the communications agency Avantgarde.

Walker Evans. A Life’s Work

25 July to 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.
