until 23.06. | #1988ARTatBerlin | Verein zur Förderung von Kunst und Kultur at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz shows from 26th April 2018 the exhibition “Mies in Berlin
– Flux of Experience”.
Mies in Berlin is the title of the first record of the Bauwelt Archive, documenting a long conversation with the architect which took place when – after 27 years – Mies van der Rohe returned to Berlin in 1964 to build a gallery of the 20th century. This moderated monologue is the starting point of the exhibition Mies in Berlin – Flux of Experience.
Prototypes, designs and original photographs from the Swiss Neumann Hug Collection are confronted with works by contemporary artists, who deal in an individual way with different, even problematic, developments of modernity, all of which were decisively pushed by Mies van der Rohe’s designs. As divers as the artistic approaches and the media used are, all the works that deal with Mies van der Rohe combine a mixture of admiration and critical distance, not least because of the still faszinating spatial concepts and the reflective qualities of his architecture.
Mies in Berlin – Flux of Experience presents artists and works predominantly based in Berlin – such as Wiebke Elzel & Jana Müller, Thomas Florschuetz, Alexandra Hopf, Andreas Koch, Sabine Boehl, Claudia Kugler, Jochen Lempert, Alexei Meschtschanow, Karina Nimmerfall, Heidi Specker, Maja Wirkus & Eric Pries, plus the permanently installed outdoor sculpture Bank by Michaela Meise, which is already in the possession of the Kunstverein and of course works by Mies van der Rohe.
