until 07.08. Dancing with my Camera. Dayanita Singh.  photography  Repro Let’s See, DayanitaSingh, 2021, Photo: © Dayanita Singh

Since the 1980s, Dayanita Singh has pioneered a genre-defying approach to photography that pushes the limits of the medium. Dancing with my Camera presents the major phases of the internationally renowned artist’s oeuvre, from her earliest works through today. Along with key past works, including her “museums”, the new project, Let’s See, is especially realised for the Gropius Bau exhibition.


The Gropius Bau is one of Europe’s most important exhibition venues. With its acclaimed contemporary and archaeological exhibitions, the Gropius Bau has consistently opened up new realms of experience and established its international reputation.


06.06. – 14.08. Takeover. 

With Kids Curate_Takeover. A project by the Stiftung Brandenburger Tor and the Gropius Bau, Berlin primary school pupils realise their own exhibition on-site at the Gropius Bau. The exhibition explores how to see and understand the world through children’s eyes, through such sensory themes as movement and shadows; the exhibition as a game; interactions between light and water; and the interplay of sound and nature.

22.07. – 23.10. The Woven Child. Louise Bourgeois.  Repro THE GOOD MOTHER (detail), Louise Bourgeois, 2003, Fabric, thread, stainless steel, wood and glass, 109.2x 45.7 x 38.1cm, Photo: © The Easton Foundation/VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2021, Photo: Christopher Burke

The Woven Child is the first major survey to focus exclusively on Louise Bourgeois’ fabric-based works. The exhibition charts the artists’ lifelong connection to textiles, and the memories they conjure, through a diverse body of sculptures, installations, drawings, collages, books and prints.

16.09. – 15.01. On Caring, Repairing and Healing*.  Repro Untitled, Kader Attia, 2017, Sculpture. Wooden bench, leg prosthetics, Exhibition view, The Field of Emotion, The Power Plant, Toronto, 2018, Courtesy of the Artist and Galleria Continua, Photo: Toni Hafkenscheid

In autumn 2022, the Gropius Bau hosts a large-scale exhibition centering on caring, repairing and healing. Through installation, painting, audio and an extensive performance programme, On Caring, Repairing and Healing is a call to change. The ambitious exhibition aims to establish common ground on a matter whose relevance for individuals, communities and institutions is all the more acute in the pandemic age.
