Kunsthaus Dahlem

Opened in 2015, the space is dedicated to art of German post-war modernism and presents sculptures from 1945 to 1961

Located in the former State Atelier of the sculptor Arno Breker, Kunsthaus Dahlem is an exhibition space for postwar German modernism (East and West).

In particular, the selection’s focus is on the presentation of sculpture, supplemented by painting, prints, drawings and photography,  from the years from 1945 to 1961 (when the Berlin Wall was built) in which the capitulation and occupation, the smoldering East-West conflict, the blockade of Berlin and its overcoming by the airlift of the Western allies, and the founding of two German states were central historical moments. Those years were also characterised by superimposed and officially supported and art movements and ideologies such as “abstraction as world art” (West) and “Socialist Realism” (East), that arose along with alternative artistic currents.
