DESCRIPTION

This presentation on the topic of time offers some new and exciting insights into the Berlinische Galerie's extensive collections. Here, works dating from the 19th century to the present day, which have been shown rarely or not at all, enter into stimulating dialogue with the gallery's masterpieces.

The exhibition is divided into three thematic groups and extends across most of the ground floor. Our presentation begins by comparing and contrasting artworks that enable us to experience the temporal phenomena of Continuance - Moment. Public and private cultures of memory represent the central theme of the next pair of opposites, Eternity - Transience. Artistic tendencies directing the view back or forwards are open to discussion under the headings Retrospective - Prospective.

The curators Anna Ewa Dyrko, Antje Schunke and Thomas Steigenberger - currently trainees at the gallery - are paying special attention to the mediation of the exhibition. Formats like »tear-off texts« or an »interspace« offer the opportunity to participate actively in the composition of the exhibition. Thus, the solemn nature of informative texts permanently fixed to the wall is counteracted by perforated notes to be torn off. In the »interspace«, the chance to record impressions, questions or criticism enables visitors to enjoy a continuing dialogue with each other and the curators.
