Live tours through museums and exhibitions in December

After the successful start in the Friedrichswerder Church and the Old National Gallery in November, the National Museums in Berlin are continuing their series with live tours of the currently closed museums and special exhibitions in December.

The half-hour tours with director* and curator* are shown live on the Instagram Channel of the National Museums in Berlin and are also available online afterwards (link below).

Museumsinsel Berlin, Alte Nationalgalerie: Dekadenz und dunkle Träume. Der belgische Symbolismus
online since Friday, 27th November 2020, 4 p.m.
The lustful gaze of a saturated society into the abyss, the morbid attraction between Thanatos and Eros are themes in art that found expression in the late 19th century, particularly in Belgian Symbolism. The large-scale special exhibition in the Old National Gallery is devoted to this artistic movement that emerged in the 1880s, with Brussels as its main centre, and presents the spectrum of hitherto little known Belgian positions such as Fernand Khnopff, Léon Spilliaert, or Jean Delville as an important reference for European Symbolism.
Ralph Gleis, director of the Alte Nationalgalerie and curator of the exhibition, will guide through the exhibition.

Kulturforum, Kunstgewerbemuseum: ATMOISM – Gestaltete Atmosphären
Friday, 4th December 2020, 4 p.m.
Designer Hermann August Weizenegger (HAW) has tailored the concept of his first major solo exhibition to the Museum of Decorative Arts: Inspired by the “soft brutalist” spatial atmosphere of the architecture designed by Rolf Gutbrod in 1967, he developed 24 stage set-like interventions. These unfold as sculptures, material compositions and object stagings like a net over the entire building. The result is an atmospheric tour that opens a dialogue with the museum and its objects and reflects a creative vision of future product (ion) scenarios.
Claudia Banz, curator of the exhibition, will guide through the exhibition.

Kulturforum, Kupferstichkabinett
Wir heben ab! Bilder vom Fliegen von Dürer bis Jorinde Voigt
Friday, 11th December 2020, 4 p.m.
Just in time for the long-awaited take-off from Berlin’s BER airport, the Kupferstichkabinett is devoting itself to the subject of “Flying” under the title “We take off!”, a subject between centuries of fascination and current flight shame. On show will be some 80 works by some 60 artists*, including works by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, Goya, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Max Liebermann, Henri Matisse and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as works by Eberhard Havekost, Anselm Kiefer and Jorinde Voigt.
Anna Pfäfflin, curator of the exhibition, will present a selection of the works in her live tour.

Museumsstandort Dahlem, Museum Europäischer Kulturen
Fast Fashion. Die Schattenseiten der Mode
Wednesday, 16th December 2020, 6 p.m.
Schnelllebigkeit charakterisiert den Modekonsum von heute. Große Ketten bringen alle zwei Wochen neue Kollektionen auf den Markt, mit Gewinn: Im Durchschnitt kauft jede*r Deutsche pro Jahr 60 Kleidungsstücke – mehr als eines pro Woche. Doch viele davon werden erst gar nicht oder viel zu selten getragen, bevor sie in der Altkleidersammlung landen. Die vom Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg konzipierte Sonderausstellung im Museum Europäischer Kulturen (MEK) wirft einen kritischen Blick auf die Folgen dieses Handelns für Produzent*innen und Umwelt und regt die Besucher*innen an, sich engagiert mit ihrem eigenen Konsumverhalten auseinanderzusetzen.
Claudia Banz, Co-Kuratorin der Ausstellung, führt in englischer Sprache durch die Ausstellung.

Museum Berggruen
Klee in Nordafrika
Friday, 18th December 2020, 4 p.m.
Zwei Mal zog es Paul Klee (1879–1940) zu Studienzwecken nach Nordafrika, womit er sich in eine lange Tradition von Künstler*innenreisen in den Orient einreihte: Am Beginn seiner künstlerischen Karriere fuhr er nach Tunesien, als etablierter Künstler und Lehrer am Bauhaus nach Ägypten. Das Museum Berggruen widmet sich in einer konzentrierten Sonderpräsentation den in Zusammenhang mit Klees Nordafrikareisen entstandenen Werken aus der Sammlung der Nationalgalerie, ergänzt durch fünf großzügige Leihgaben aus der Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf.
Durch die Ausstellung führt Gabriel Montua, Kurator der Ausstellung.
