Some 180,000 visitors have seen the exhibition at the Alte Nationalgalerie to date. It will be shown at the Wien Museum in Vienna, its second venue, from 22 May to 13 October 2024.

We are delighted that after in-depth discussions with all the lenders, we could agree to a two-week extension of this presentation of invaluable and sensitive objects. Hopefully, many more visitors will now be able to enjoy this unique exhibition.

The Exhibition “Secessions: Klimt, Stuck, Liebermann”

For the first time, an exhibition at the Alte Nationalgalerie is dedicated to a comparison of three turn-of-the-century art metropolises: Munich, Vienna, and Berlin. As Modernism dawned, the artistic avant-garde pushed for freedom in both the institutions of art and the subject matter expressed.

The juxtaposition of the three Secessions helps illustrate common goals and ambitions beyond specific local characteristics, all while shedding light on the phenomenon of secessions and their contribution to the development of art in Western Europe. Important in this respect – alongside new exhibition formats – were internationality and the promotion of the avant-garde in every form, which not least of all helped innovative currents such as Impressionism and Symbolism achieve a breakthrough in the German-speaking world.

The exhibition comprises more than 200 paintings, sculptures, and graphic works by 80 artists. Through a collaboration with the Wien Museum (Vienna), it features not only many artists who can be discovered for the first time, but also foregrounds the oeuvre of Gustav Klimt with numerous examples of his work. This is the first time such a comprehensive presentation of Klimt’s work has been shown in Berlin.
