At the end of October 2019, the National Museums in Berlin published an outlook on the highlights of the extensive special exhibition programme that await us in the coming year 2020.
“2020 will once again be an exciting and diverse exhibition year for the National Museums in Berlin,” says General Director Michael Eissenhauer. “From Raphael to Katharina Grosse, from the Germanic tribes to Pop Art, from late Gothic to GDR design, the spectrum of the special exhibition programme for next year ranges. Our visitors can look forward to big names and new discoveries, to large-scale presentations and concentrated cabinet exhibitions, to well-known positions and surprising perspectives. Once again, the National Museums in Berlin impressively underscore their status as a universal museum, whose 15 collections can generate from their art and cultural treasures an almost infinite variety of themes from up to 400,000 years of human history that is unparalleled internationally. I would like to thank all my colleagues in our collections and institutions for their great commitment and thank our international and national partners and sponsors without whose support such a rich program would not be possible. Last but not least, I wish our visitors an inspiring, happy and healthy year 2020”.
Please note that additions and changes to the programme are still possible.
