Starting in the late 1950s, the Kulturforum arose in incremental stages. It is the living embodiment of the cultural rebirth of West Berlin after World War II, and was built as a visible symbol in view of the border between East and West Berlin. Today, European art and culture of the modern era is on show here in a plenitude and density that is without parallel.
The museums that are part of the Kulturforum are -
The gallery boasts one of the major European art collections in the world. Since its founding as a public institution, it has assembled together works according to considered art-historical criteria. In addition to the 1000 masterpieces in the permanent exhibition, a further 400 pictures are on show in the study gallery.
Museum Library. The Kunstbibliothek is one of the world’s largest museum libraries featuring diverse media on archaeology, anthropology, art history, and cultural history, and thereby constitutes a fascinating laboratory of ideas for students, scholars, and researchers of art and cultural studies.
The Museum of Decorative Arts. European craftwork dating from the Middle Ages to the present day is on show at the Kunstgewerbemuseum. Designed by Rolf Gutbrod and opened in 1985, it was the first building to be built around the sloping piazzetta of the Kulturforum near Potsdamer Platz. The Kunstgewerbemuseum is also a leading center for design and fashion.
Museum of paintings and drawings. The Kupferstichkabinett is a haven of artistic ideas, captured and transmitted through 110,000 drawings, watercolours, and oil sketches, as well as hundreds of illustrated books, miniatures, printing plates, topographical views, and approx. 550,000 prints, which together make the Kupferstichkabinett one of the four most important collections of its kind in the world.
2015 marks the beginning of a four-year project of refurbishment and modernisation of the Neue Nationalgalerie. Since it opened in 1968 almost 50 years ago no major work has been done on the building As refurbishment cannot take place during opening hours, the museum will be closed for the duration of works.
