After six years under renovations, the iconic Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin is reopening its doors with a sleeker look very in tune with the capital’s aesthetic.
Built in 1968, the Neue Nationalgalerie has always been a symbol of modernist architecture and that has not changed with this revamp. On the contrary, the current team in charge of the renovation made sure to maintain the original key elements from architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s plan.
The museum is presenting four new exhibitions:
- “Minimal / Maximal” by sculptor Alexander Calder;
- “In a Perpetual Now” by artist and cinematographer Rosa Barba;
- “The Art of Society”, once again showcasing emblematic works of German Classical Modernism from the Nationalgalerie collection;
- “The Neue Nationalgalerie: Its Architect and Its Building History”, which is in fact a worth-visiting retrospective of the building’s history from birth to present-day.
Keep in mind that you need to book your place in order to visit them. If you’re planning to take a holiday soon, we recommend you take a look at the latest news and travel restrictions due to the rise of COVID-19 variants.
British architect David Chipperfield is responsible for the reconditioning of the Neue Nationalgalerie, which was caused by technical complications in the first place. The Gallery is worldwide known for its focus on the Bauhaus avant-garde movement, expressionism, cubism and surrealism.
