Covered in Time and History – The Films of Ana Mendieta
Features the work of one of the most important artists of the post war period: Cuban Ana Mendieta. This exhilarating exhibition places the viewers as witness of a visceral artistic surrender, strong in Mendietas work. Her films, both means for documentation and artistic experimentation, deal with some of the artists most common themes: body and nature, political and geographical barriers, gender, cultural and history.

When: from now until the 22.07.2018
Where: Gropius Bau | Niederkirchnerstraße 7, 10963 Berlin
How much: € 9 / reduced € 6

hello woldHello World. Revising a Collection
This exhibition is a critical inquiry into the Nationalgalerie. Founded in the 19th century the collection – one of Germany’s most important – did not escape its predominantly Western focus. It is more than time to rethink it. “What could the collection look like today, had an understanding characterized its concept of art, and consequently also its genesis, that was more open to the world? How might the canon and the art historical narratives themselves have changed through a widening and multiplication of perspectives?”

When: from now until the 26.08.2018
Where: Hamburger Bahnhof | Invalidenstraße 50-51, 10557 Berlin
How much: € 14 / reduced € 7
