Norbert Bisky integrates the exhibition Features at Stadt Museum

04.09.2020  – 22.11.2020

The exhibition shows artistic perspectives on Berlin’s past and present. Ten German and international artists who live here watched the events and debates in the city and each created a new image in large format.

On the main nave of the Nikolaikirche, these individual works of art come together to form a frieze of paintings that reflects Berlin’s development since 1987 in various ways. That year, on the city’s 750th anniversary, sculptor Gerhard Thieme completed his concrete frieze for the Nikolaiviertel in the east of the divided city. The focus is on the secular struggle of the popular masses for self-determination, which was only achieved under socialism.

The way Thieme interprets the history of Berlin differs significantly from the history of the city in the Rotes Rathaus terracotta frieze of around 1870. There are talented and hardworking men who built the city in the swamp and led it to greatness and success. Features uses the resources of contemporary art to connect with these historical friezes in the city’s history.
With works by: Norbert Bisky, Patricia Bucher, Sol Calero, Friederike Feldmann, Nadira Husain, Thomas Kilpper, Thomas Ravens, Petra Trenkel, Helen Verhoeven and Suse Weber.



Norbert Bisky integrates the exhibition Szene Berlin

Norbert Bisky // NO SIGN, 2018 l oil on canvas, 2 parts l 320 x 480 cm



The collective exhibition Szene Berlin, curated by Johann König, is shown mainly in a renovated barn in the domain of Derneburg. The Berlin scene includes paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos by more than two dozen artists based in Berlin. The works were created in a period that began in the early 1990s until this year and stars such as Norbert Bisky, Monica Bonvicini, Jonas Burgert, Martin Eder, Olafur Eliasson, Elmgreen & Dragset, Stefanie Gutheil, Jeppe Hein, Gregor Hildebrandt, Judith Hopf, Wilhelm Klotzek, Alicja Kwade, Jonathan Meese, Anselm Reyle, Daniel Richter, Michael Sailstorfer, Tomas Saraceno, Thomas Scheibitz, Chiharu Shiota, Dirk Skreber, Katja Strunz, Jorinde Voigt, Corinne Wasmuht, Ai Weiwei and Young-Tak.

(…) The colorful mix of artists in Szene Berlin refuses to put one perspective above the other. Norbert Bisky stands out as an artist who embodies the vital force of the Berlin art scene. With aesthetic roots that go back to the fall of the Berlin Wall, he creates colorful and image-rich paintings in which he explores the mixture of communism, religion and state. In turn, Corinne Wasmuht shows an almost mystical intuition for spatial design. In his work, the fragility of our digital age and how the canvas can exaggerate our perception of architectural forms is clear.

Berlin arrives in Lower Saxony will be shown in September and October 2020.
