Neue Nationalgalerie


The Neue Nationalgalerie (New National Gallery), built between 1965 and 1968, stands for the spirit of departure in post-war West Berlin. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, its architect, is considered a visionary, while the collection of the Neue Nationalgalerie testifies to the visionary spirit of 20th century artists. This can be observed in a number of works in the current collection presentation “Die Kunst der Gesellschaft” (“The Art of Society”). Delving into the collection in this way and showcasing the gallery’s construction history and Mies van der Rohe, the project station sheds light on the utopian potential of the collection and the architecture. On September 12th, the performance “Skin and Bones” by Alvaro Urbano will be taking place on the terrace and in the area around the Neue Nationalgalerie, addressing the particular architecture of the museum in the context of the Kulturforum.
