Rosa Barba. In a Perpetual Now

22.08.2021 to 16.01.2022
Neue Nationalgalerie

For the reopening of the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin-based artist Rosa Barba will present various works under the title In a Perpetual Now. In addition to key pieces from her oeuvre created between 2009 and 2021, a new film produced for the exhibition will also be shown.

With its architectural structure the large steel construction makes reference to Mies van der Rohe’s early project Brick Country House, while also displaying 15 of her cinematic and sculptural works. Specially produced for the architecture of the Neue Nationalgalerie, the expansive installation follows the prinicple of cinematic montage, which plays a pivotal role in the artist’s work.

A special exhibition of the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
