Centrally located in the middle of the room, the large hanging sculpture »Negligé Illuminé« delicately glows into the space. Like a painting from another time - one might think of paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe or Tamara Lempicka from the era of Classical Modernism - the form, reminiscent of a rose blossom hanging upside down, unfolds organically in large, folded sweeps, puffing out.

Starting from his artist's book "In SHAPE" of 2022 with 1000 geometric drawings, which are summarized as a compendium, these in turn serve as a matrix for further series of artworks, which differ in technique and material. From computer-milled relief to lacquer works on Alu-Dibond or fire drawings, they show a wealth of possibilities that spring from Dave Grossmann's analytical system and are also characterized by high craftsmanship. A concert for the senses is generated!

Peculiar fruit, ceramic pigs, levitating women, and collapsing cakes. The artworks in Ruptured Myths of Present seem wondrous, in their eclectic assemblage of symbols and characters. Frank Jimin Hopp and Sara Umar pull the veil on the ever-present archetypes of society, some of which have existed for centuries while others are new actors who enter the stage.

Between 1891 and 1914, more than a million mostly Jewish migrants from Eastern Europe had to pass through the emigrant train station between Berlin and Spandau. Before they were allowed to emigrate via the North Sea ports to the USA and other countries, their papers, finances and state of health were checked here.

The exhibition explores questions that are just as pressing today as they were over a hundred years ago.

In April 1955, representatives from 29 Asian and African states gathered in Bandung, Indonesia to enact shared goals and solidarity after decolonisation from historical colonial powers. Spectres of Bandung is a research-based exhibition exploring this first large-scale Asian-African Conference that can be considered a catalyst of already existing political and cultural affiliations.

Großes Kino – we’re talking about cinema with a capital C, about motion pictures that leave you feeling overwhelmed or in awe. A good movie poster, too, is designed to be remembered: it captures the film’s mood, alludes to storylines, evokes feelings. The drama and narrative of a long film are condensed into a single image. The exhibition "Großes Kino" presents around 100 original movie posters from the 1900s through to the 2020s from the Kunstbibliothek’s collection of graphic design.

Hardly any other era was so marked by division, rupture and transformation as the period after the Second World War. In light of this, the Neue Nationalgalerie has consciously chosen the title Extreme Tension for the upcoming presentation of its postwar collection. Taking the radical performance Zerreißprobe (Stress Test) by Günter Brus as its point of departure, the Neue Nationalgalerie will show how dramatically postwar art was shaped by the tensions that existed between politics and society
