The second coolest art gallery in Berlin. Usually there are several exhibitions happening at the same time. The latest ones are female art prize winners. It was lovely to see the gentle nature of female paintings compared to a crazy exhibition of installations by John Bock. Most of his pieces didn’t make much sense to me, but there were some cool ideas of construction that I appreciated.
The retrospective of Cornelia Schleime shows works from the 1980s until today. The exhibition covers photographs, drawings and paintings. I was quite moved by her female portraits, the colour palette and softness of the creatures in her art.
Another artist whose work was mesmerising because of the beautiful vivid colours she used was Tatjana Doll.
The biggest piece in the exhibition space was taken over by work from Emilio Vedova, who transformed his paintings into architectural forms called Absurd Berlin journal ’64.
The upper part of the gallery holds a wonderful permanent exhibition of 20th century Berlin art, but that’s a topic for a whole other post.
