Katharina Grosse
It Wasn’t Us

24.04.2020 to 04.10.2020
Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin

With her spectacular site-specific paintings that she fabricates with air guns and vibrant acrylic paints, Katharina Grosse (born 1961 in Freiburg) assumes a central position in contemporary art. Her large-scale works present themselves as pulsating, three-dimensional visual worlds that incorporate the walls, ceiling and floor of the exhibition space.

Everything becomes the canvas for these paintings and is seized by a vibrating charge of colour that disrupts our typical conception of reality and opens up previously unimagined spheres of possibility. Grosse’s works, which the viewer can walk through, are produced in interior and exterior spaces, and reflect upon our interaction with institutional and urban spaces. In 2020, the artist will use the historical hall of the Hamburger Bahnhof along with sections of the museum’s grounds for a new work that incorporates sculptural elements and radically destabilises and renegotiates the existing order of the space of the museum.

The exhibition is made possible by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie and supported by Volkswagen.

A special exhibition of the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
