Kolbe Museum

2 months ago

The museum opened after sculptor Georg Kolbe‘s death, in 1947, when his former studio was made accessible to the public and his artistic heritage kept there. To fulfill this task, the Georg Kolbe Foundation was founded in 1949, which holds the rights to the artist’s work and is still the bearer of the museum today. In the decades that followed, further pieces and works by other sculptors were added, and, as a consequence, the exhibition programme was extended.

Under the direction of Marc Wellmann, from 2008 on, the focus of the exhibition programme widened, involving an extensive dialogue with contemporary art: since then, solo and group exhibitions dedicated to internationally renowned contemporary sculptors have been regularly organised. Under the current director Julia Wallner the museum has been opened to wider audiences: today, in addition to classical modernism, the museum is dedicated also to contemporary art.

Jüdisches Museum

2 months ago

The Jewish Museums Berlin is one of Europe’s leading museums, which dedicates its programme of  exhibitions and permanent collection, educational activities, and diverse program of events to reflection on Jewish history and culture as well as about migration and diversity in Germany. The permanent historical exhibition is complemented by temporary exhibitions, contemporary art installations, and special displays focused on a range of themes .

Even the design of the building recalls its focus: Libeskind has dubbed his design Between the Lines, a title that reflects the tensions of German-Jewish history. Rich in symbolism, the museum’s architecture makes this historical past palpable. In November 2012, the Academy of the Jewish Museum Berlin opened  across the street from the museum, built after architect Daniel Libeskind’s design. The new location unites, with a total surface of 6.000 square meters, the archives, library and education department under one roof, as well as the newly founded Academy Programs. S
