Julius von Bismarck (*1983) explores in his art how people define their place within their immediate environment and how society negotiates the concept of nature. He frequently uses deconstruction as a tool to question how, as a society, we evaluate nature as landscape and who asserts the right of interpretation. For his show at the Berlinische Galerie, Bismarck adopts a biographical approach for the first time, delving into his family history. In so doing, he centres his work on the manifold interactions between how we understand nature and how we write history.

Opening on 25.5. at 7 pm
Admission from 6 pm
