Boros Collection / Bunker Berlin #4
Sammlung Boros / Boros Collection
Berlin, Germany

We have rarely been as aware of the vulnerability of our physical bodies as in recent years. As a society, we are constantly upgrading our bodies through artificial enhancements to immunize ourselves against infections and maximize our performance.

Memories are externalized – stored in clouds – and social interactions are digitalized. As gadgets become increasingly humanoid, our bodies gradually morph into technoid devices. In the Boros Collection’s new presentation #4, this commodification of our physical beings is repeatedly and poignantly objectified. It presents a completely new excerpt of the private collection in the bunker.

From May 1, 2022, over 20 contemporary artist positions will be showcased across 80 rooms, of the approximately 3000 sqm collection, as part of Gallery Weekend Berlin. The Boros Foundation team is particularly committed to mediating their represented works; 220,000 visitors could thus gain extensive insights into contemporary artist positions of the previous presentation.

The Boros Foundation is a non-profit organization that promotes and supports contemporary art.

With a high-rise bunker in Berlin Mitte it operates an exhibition space for the presentation of the private collection of Karen and Christian Boros. The main focus is on mediating the exhibited works of art to a broad public. Through guided tours the artistic positions of each presentation are communicated by a team of currently 36 employees – art historians, artists and cultural scientists.

With works by Jean-Marie Appriou, Julian Charrière, Thomas Eggerer, Cyprien Gaillard, Ximena Garrido-Lecca, Yngve Holen, Klára Hosnedlová, Anne Imhof, Alicja Kwade, Victor Man, Kris Martin, Nick Mauss, Jonathan Monk, Adrian Morris, Paulo Nazareth, Berenice Olmedo, Amalia Pica, Bunny Rogers, Michael Sailstorfer, Wilhelm Sasnal, Pieter Schoolwerth, Anna Uddenberg, Julius von Bismarck, Eric Wesley, He Xiangyu.

    Goswell Road

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)

  • Anu Põder: Space for My Body
    Jan 3 – Jun 30, 2024
    Muzeum Susch
    Susch, Switzerland

    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)
