Culture: A Visit @ Berlinische Galerie - Museum Of Modern Art, Berlin

(Drivebycuriosity) - Berlin has a legion of amazing museums. One of them is the Berlinische Galerie - Museum Of Modern Art  (berlinischegalerie). While our recent visit of German`s capital (here my report driveby) my wife and I spent some hours in this interesting place and enjoyed the displayed collections.

We liked the exhibition "Art in Berlin 1880-1980" which showed work by Berlin artists and often referred to life in the metropolis and her history. I display here my favorites, a very subjective selection as usual.

 Above this paragraph you can see "Unveiling of the Richard-Wagner Monument in the Tiergarten" by Anton von Werner (1908, Öl auf Leinwand, 227 x 312,3 cm).

This is "Liegender Akt/Lying Nude" by Lesser Ury (1889, Öl auf Leinwand).

Above you can see "Landschaft, Bild 1/Landscape, Picture 1" by followed by Jacoba van Heemskerck (um 1914, Oil auf Leinwand) follwoed by "Helgoland" by Arthur Segal (1923, Öl auf Leinwand, 101 x 130 cm) & "Synthetic Musician" by  Iwan Puni (1921, Öl auf Leinwand).

The threesome above is called "Lot and His Daughters" by Georg Tappert (1911, Öl auf Leinwand, 125 x 151 cm), a quote from the Bible.

 "Yellow Wall (Luckauer Straße / Sebastianstraße)" by Rainer Fetting (1977,
 Dispersion auf Leinwand, 140 x 160 cm).


                                                   Ministry Of War

"We Were a Kind of Museum Piece" by Wolf Vostell (1964, Siebdruck und Sprühdosenfarbe auf Leinwandfoto, 120 x 450 cm) followed by "Tales for W. Turner" by Fred Thieler (1962, Mischtechnik auf Leinwand, 160 x 315 cm) & " Ministry of War" by  K. H. Hödicke (1977, Kunstharz auf Leinwand, 184 x 270 cm )

Above you can see some images from an exhibition called "The Art Show" created by Edward Kienholz & Nancy Reddin Kienholz, husband and wife artists. The setting of the 'Art Show' depicts the opening of a private art gallery. Edward and Nancy Kienholz made models of their friends using plaster casts. The figures include noted artists, art critics, museum directors, etc. The models are wearing the clothes of their real-life counterparts.
