Exhibition highlights 2016 – 2018
The so-called Golden Age of Spain, one of the most fascinating chapters of western art history, is coming to the Gemäldegalerie (Old Master Paintings) this summer. More than 100 unique works by such masters as Velázquez, Zurbarán or Murillo from international collections will be brought together in the exhibition “El Siglo de Oro. The Age of Velázquez“.
“El Siglo de Oro“ (1.7. – 30.10.2016)
“Canova und der Tanz" (Canova and the Dance) has Antonio Canova's dancer, one of the most important and popular works of art in the Bode-Museum, as its centre focus. Supplemented by international items on loan, the exhibition is dedicated to the sensuous theme of dance.
“Canova und der Tanz“ (21.10.2016 – 22.01.2017)
In the Neues Museum (New Museum) ancient Egyptian and ancient Chinese art treasures will be displayed together side by side for the first time, including many exhibits which have never been seen before in Europe, in the exhibition “China und Ägypten: Wege zweier Hochkulturen“ (China and Egypt: the paths of two advanced civilisations). Each of the 250 exhibits has its own history and, at the same time, represents an entire culture.
“China und Ägypten“ (1.5. – 31.10.2017)
A further highlight is the exhibition “Vision Pop" in the special exhibition rooms in the Kulturforum. It presents the art and lifestyle of the 1960s, a time full of visions, dreams, upheaval and political criticism: mini-skirts, pop music, interior design and the peace movement became cult.
“Vision Pop“ (27.4. – 17.8.2018)
