Berlinische Galerie: Museum of Modern Art by Berlinische Galerie

One of the German capital’s youngest museums, Berlinische Galerie collects art created in Berlin from 1870 to today. Combining a focus on the local with international standards, the museum features art by Max Beckmann, Hannah Höch, Nan Goldin, Daniel Libeskind, and many other renowned artists in disciplines ranging from impressionism and classic modernism to contemporary in-situ installations. Reproducing central works from the museum’s collections, this book offers an intriguing behind-the-scenes look at its inner workings.
Lavishly illustrated with two hundred color images, Berlinische Galerie highlights the museum’s collections of fine arts, works on paper, photography, and architecture, as well as its artists’ archives. These images are accompanied by essays describing the challenges museums face in the twenty-first century and revealing how works of art are handled—including conservation measures, the ways they are presented to children, and how curatorial concepts provide ever-changing interpretations. Published on the occasion of the museum’s fortieth anniversary, this book is an informative and insightful look at this internationally renowned museum.
