Art in Berlin 1880-1980
The Permanent Exhibition
Otto Bartning, Georg Baselitz, Rudolf Bauer, Max Beckmann, Lovis Corinth, Otto Dix, Naum Gabo, Hannah Höch, Johannes Itten, Jacoba van Heemskerck
In its freshly designed permanent exhibition, the Berlinische Galerie showcases about 250 works from its collection. This multifaceted chronological tour through art in Berlin from 1880 to 1980 begins with paintings influenced by the wealthy patrons of the Kaiser’s era in the late 19th century and leads through works of Expressionism and the East European avant-garde to the art and architecture of post-war modernism. Reflecting the interdisciplinary character of the collection, it takes the form of a dialogue between major paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, and architectural designs. These represent the diversity of artistic methods and styles, as well as the tensions, antitheses, and disruptions that remain a hallmark of Berlin as a hub of artistic output.
On October 22, 2020, the Berlinische Galerie collection presents itself in a new light – with a diverse and dynamic selection, including some rarely shown works.

Photo Book Talk / Distanz VerlagPhoto Book Talk
Paul Hutchinson, Ralf Marsault, and Ashkan Sahihi gaze through the photographic lens at phenomena of urban culture and communitization. Nevertheless, their protagonists, subjects, and artistic approaches couldn’t be more different. In a panel discussion marking the publication of three volumes by Hutchinson, Marsault, and Sahihi, Distanz asks the artists: in today’s digital world, what is the value of analogue photography as a record of the time? What role do artistic publications play in this? And how can the medium of photography artistically document processes of urban change? Visit us at the publishing house and talk to the artists in person.
