The Feuerle Collection, Berlin, Opens to the Public

3 years ago

The Feuerle Collection, a new private museum with contemporary art, Imperial Chinese furniture, and ancient Southeast Asian art opens in Berlin on October 15.

The new Berlin museum is dedicated to Désiré Feuerle’s unique collection and juxtaposes international contemporary artists with Imperial Chinese furniture and ancient Southeast Asian art. It first opened its doors with a sold out preview week at the end of April that attracted international critical acclaim, and this summer hosted the 9th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art as one of the main venues, which attracted over 100,000 visitors.

Located in a former Second World War telecommunications bunker that has been renovated by the British architect John Pawson, the museum encourages a conversation between different periods and cultures, offering an alternative perception of ancient art and creates a new perspective on the pieces, adopting a synesthetic approach. 

The collection brings together stone, bronze and wood Khmer sculptures from the 7th–13th century, Imperial Chinese lacquer and stone furniture, wood and stone Chinese Scholar furniture from the Han Dynasty to Qing Dynasty, from 200 BC to the 18th century, and works by Cristina Iglesias, Anish Kapoor, Zeng Fanzhi, James Lee Byars, Nobuyoshi Araki and Adam Fuss. 

Opening: October 15, 2016
