Publication release: Die Ausstellungen. Neue Nationalgalerie 1968-2015

Neue Nationalgalerie

Fifty years ago, on 15 September 1968, the Neue Nationalgalerie opened in Berlin. The museum, unlike any other in the world, has written architectural history and influenced the aesthetics of many exhibitions. A 350-page publication with some 500 telling and largely unknown photographs illustrates the museum’s exceptional exhibition history.

Spectacular projects ranging from Mark Rothko and Yves Klein to Metamusik Festivals, MoMA in Berlin, Gerhard Richter and Kraftwerk tell the history of this institution, which was programmatically influenced by each of its directors and visually defined by each generation. The book reflects the zeitgeist and trends in art and society. Personal recollections guide readers on an emotional tour through the museum.
