Rethinking Museums Politically: Berlin's Altes Museum, Museum Island and the (reconstructed) City Palace

Tue, 2017-04-11 10:05

 

Since its opening in 1830, Karl Friedrich Schinkel's Altes Museum has been located in Berlin's highly symbolic centre, defined by the royal City Palace, Cathedral and Armory. While the museum's performative architecture responds to its location, the current curatorial concept and display no longer reflect the original museological significance of the building.

In the Czechoslovak context a deliberately created image of the present intended for the future generations became a program in the communist period, the main purpose being the documentation of the socialism building and thelegitimization of the regime. At that time, the contemporary documentation also became a subject of scientific research.

Behind the Mask: Artists in the DDR

Tue, 2017-04-11 08:59

 

In der DDR gab es eine offizielle Staatskunst; sie sollte politisch wirken. Diese ideologischen Verflechtungen wurden in den vergangenen Jahren in zahlreichen Ausstellungen untersucht. Wie aber reflektierten die Künstler im kritischen Blick nach innen ihr Selbstverständnis und ihr Verhältnis zur vorgeschriebenen staatstragenden Funktion? Die Ausstellung "Hinter der Maske. Künstler in der DDR" widmet sich den Spielarten künstlerischer Selbstinszenierung in der DDR zwischen Rollenbild und Rückzug, verordnetem Kollektivismus und schöpferischer Individualität.
