From 22 March to 16 June 2019, the Gropius Bau explores the concept of crafts and handmade processes in Berlin’s contemporary art scene, taking its history as a former museum for decorative arts and educational institution as a starting point.
'And Berlin Will Always Need You. Art, Craft and Concept Made in Berlin' is a distinctly contemporary art exhibition that sheds light on artists’ practices in the city. Presenting an evocative series of existing and newly commissioned works the exhibition engages with traditional methods of production, aesthetics and materiality, and examines historical artefacts and objects.
With works by Nevin Aladağ, Leonor Antunes, Julieta Aranda, Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann and the Brukman workers, Mariechen Danz, Haris Epaminonda, Theo Eshetu, Olaf Holzapfel, Dorothy Iannone, Antje Majewski and Olivier Guesselé-Garai, Willem de Rooij, Katarina Šević, Chiharu Shiota, Simon Wachsmuth and Haegue Yang
Curated by Natasha Ginwala and Julienne Lorz
Entrance €15, Reduced €10
