Permanent Exhibition

The Berlinische Galerie presents about 250 works from its Collection in a richly faceted chronological tour through the art of Berlin from 1880 to 1980. They range from paintings of the late 19th century, when the Kaiser reigned and tastes were largely determined by the moneyed classes, via Expressionism and the East European avantgarde to post-war modern architecture and the “wild” works of the 1970s. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the Collection, a dialogue has been created between major works of painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and architecture. They illustrate the diversity of artistic styles and techniques, and also the tensions, antagonisms and radical shifts which have been such hallmarks of Berlin as a hub of the arts until the present day.
