    The Neue Nationalgalerie is an impressive museum exhibiting art works from 1900 to 1945. A large collection of German Expressionist including Max Beckman and Otto Dix. There was also a nice exhibition of Charles Munch.

    Neue Nationalgalerie: Contemporary Art

    Neue Nationalgalerie: Shrine for contemporary art
    2 more images

    I had one hour to spend in the Kulturforum area, and I used it well in the Neue Nationalgalerie. During my visit there was a photography exhibition of Hiroshi Sugimoto, with series of photographs of lightnings, pine trees, beaches, movie theaters, geometrical shapes, portraits and more. His art is enchanting and inspiring.

    The gallery is an inviting two-level glass building, with changing temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. The lower level opens into a beautiful sculpture-garden. This museum is a beautiful quiet spot to relax and enjoy good art in its well-suited and well-deserved home (or shrine).

    less is more, more or less

    The Neue Nationalgalerie could be described as Berlin's equivalent to New York's MOMA - "modernism" in art and sculpture, from Munch and Malevich to Matisse and Magritte. Indeed, when treasures from MOMA visited Berlin in 2004, they were installed here for a record-breaking show.

    The Nationalgalerie is housed in a work of art itself, a minimalist Mies van der Rohe barn with a structure profile familiar to anyone who knows his work in Chicago. The entry level is a stark and "pure" space, while the collected is exhibited in galleries underneath.

    NEUE  NATIONALGALERIE

    This not very pretty, square, glass, complited in 1968 building on my picture housed the New National Gallery (Neue Nationalgalerie) and was the first museum to be opened in the future Kulturforum - modern complex of museums, galleries, libraries and the Philharmonic Hall.

    The gallery contains 20th century European painting and sculpture esp. cubism, expressionism, the Bauhaus and surrealism and presents often temporary exhibitions like world's most famous paintings from collection of Museum of Modern Art New York (February 20th to September 19th, 2004).


    Opening hours:
    February 20th to September 19th, 2004 (MoMA):
    Tues, Wed, Sun: 10.00 am - 6.00 pm,
    Thurs to Sat: 10.00 am - 10.00 pm
