Endless Exhibition

16.06.2023 until further notice
Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart

More than 15 installations, sculptures and interventions have been set up in and around the Hamburger Bahnhof since it opened as a museum of contemporary art in 1996. These include Dan Flavin's striking blue and green light installation on the façade of the main building as well as works by Tom Fecht, Urs Fischer, John Knight and Gregor Schneider. Some of the works are more visible than others. The Endless Exhibition enables visitors to explore the artworks and to reflect on their relevance for the collection today – through public tours, a dedicated publication and website.

Each year the Endless Exhibition will be expanded by a newly commissioned work of art that is to be permanently acquired for the collection of the Nationalgalerie. Berlin-based artist Judith Hopf, whose installation and sculptural work deals with social definitions and power relations, will kick off this important expansion of the collection.


The exhibition is conceived by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, directors of the Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart, curated by Alice Koegel, Head of Exhibitions and Curator at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart.

The Endless Exhibition is a project realised by Hamburger Bahnhof with the kind support of Peppermint and Freunde der Nationalgalerie.

A permanent exhibition of the Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.
