Photographs 1966–2010

Sibylle Bergemann (1941–2010) is one of Germany’s bestknown photographers. During her Berlin-based career lasting more than four decades, she devoted great passion to an outstanding oeuvre ranging from fashion and portrait photography to literary reportage and atmospheric series. Her focus was always on people. Bergemann worked as a freelancer in the GDR with a constant flow of commissions for periodicals devoted to art and culture, such as »Das Magazin«, »Der Sonntag« and the fashion magazine »Sibylle«. After the opening of the Wall, she co-founded the photographers’ agency OSTKREUZ. From the 1990s onwards, her clients included »GEO«, »Die Zeit«, »Stern« and the »NewYork Times Magazine«. Over 200 photographs have been chosen from the museum’s own collection and from the photographer’s estate. Selected motifs from her early work will be on show for the first time.

Lajos Tihanyi, Großes Interieur mit Selbstbildnis – Mann am Fenster, 1922,

Magyar Modern
Hungarian Art in Berlin 1910–1933
04.11.22–06.02.23

This exhibition breaks new ground by devoting extensive attention to the Hungarian contribution to modern art in the German capital. Berlin plays a special role in the history of Hungarian art and culture. Even before the First World War, Hungarian artists used the growing metropolis as an exhibition stage to reach an international audience. They found the space for creative freedom on the banks of the Spree, where they established a significant visibility in various avantgarde contexts. Berlin was a formative influence for many Hungarian artists who, in turn, were a defining force in the art market. Restoring memories of this reciprocal cultural inspiration is the principal aim of this exhibition. It brings together paintings, prints, photographs and architectural drawings, deeply enriching our perception of artistic achievements from East Central Europe.

Art in Berlin
1880-1980 Permanent Exhibition

A walk around our permanent exhibition tells the story of the city’s artistic upheaval: starting with early modernism around 1900, then on through Expressionism, the East European avant-garde of the 1920s, New Objectivity, art under the Nazi dictatorship, the new dawn after 1945, post-war modernism and art in the crossfire of the Cold War, down to the rebellious mood of the 1960s and 1970s when the Wall still divided the city into East and West. There are about 250 works on show here: paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, photographs, architecture and plenty of archive material.
