What's on New National Gallery

The Gerhard Richter Kunststiftung has given 100 works to the Nationalgalerie on permanent loan. The Neue Nationalgalerie will put this loan on display in its entirety for the first time.

The central work in the exhibition is the series Birkenau (2014), consisting of four large-format, abstract paintings. Birkenau is the result of Richter’s long and in-depth engagement with the Holocaust and the possibilities of representing it.

The works are based on four photographs taken in the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, which the artist transposed to four canvases before gradually painting over them. With each layer of paint, the depiction of the photographic original disappeared a little more, until it eventually became invisible.

The work also includes a large four-part mirror, which is positioned opposite the four Birkenau canvases, creating another level of reflection.

Alongside the Birkenau series, other loaned works from various phases of Richter’s career will be exhibited, among them Squatters’ House (1989) and 6 Standing Panes (2002). There is also another large group of works from Richter’s striking series of overpainted photographs.

About: Neue Nationalgalerie

The Neue Nationalgalerie at the Berlin Kulturforum is a world-class architectural icon from the mind of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969), built to house 20th-century art. A major refurbishment was carried out during the late 2010s to bring the ‘60s-era building up to modern standards.

The column-free “universal space” is a classic of modernism and serves as the perfect location for works from European and North American masters like Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Salvador Dalí, Francis Bacon, and Andy Warhol, amongst many others. Some of the museum’s most famous works are Potsdamer Platz by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, The Skat Players by Otto Dix, and Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue IV by Barnett Newman.

A rotating calendar of special exhibitions also takes place in the Neue Nationalgalerie, so keep an eye out for their latest offerings.

The popular Pergamon Museum in Berlin is a great solution to a first world problem; it was built because there wasn't enough room in the nearby Bode Museum for all its artistic and archaeological relics. Construction carried on even through WWI and the great inflation of the 1920s. The then completed Pergamon was also badly damaged at the end of WWII (though fortunately its contents escaped damage). NOTE: The Pergamon Museum will be closed until 2027.
