A one-room show at the Museum Berggruen is showing works by Marc Chagall (1887–1985) from the Nationalgalerie’s collection. Chagall employed a principle that proved to be a groundbreaking innovation in modern art, which was also developed at the same time by such contemporary figures as Henri Matisse: the decorative image.
To mark the presentation of this collection, the photographer Ulrike Kolb (born 1965) has visited locations in which Chagall’s pictures decorate both public and private spaces: whether in the form of an art postcard in a child’s bedroom, a ceiling decorated in the style of the artist at Café Chagall in Berlin, or an original in the German President’s office in Schloss Bellevue.
