“The real value of this expansion is not more space, but space that allows us to rethink the experience of art in the Museum.” –Glenn D. Lowry, The David Rockefeller Director (more…)
The Berlinische Galerie, Museum Of Modern Art, Photography And Architecture, is one of the newest museums in the German capital and collects art from Berlin dating from 1870 to the present day – with both a local and international focus.
Founded in 1975, the State Museum reopened in its own building close to the Jewish Museum in 2004, moving into a spacious industrial hall that has been rebuilt to provide 4,600 square meters of exhibition space. Fine art – painting, graphics, sculpture, multimedia – photography, architecture and artists’ archives provide a rich source, whose interdisciplinary relationships create exciting dialogues.
Its outstanding collections include Dada Berlin, the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) and the Eastern European avant-garde. The art of the divided and reunified city of Berlin provides another focus.
