Travelling the World. Art from Germany.
Museum for Contemporary Art | Belgrade | 25.01.2019 – 24.03.2019
Exhibition | In the exhibition we show more than 350 art works that had been shown within different ifa exhibitions abroad over the last six decades. The works representing art from Germany were exhibited on every continent. Within the exhibition they are presented with focus on the history of art. The nearly 100 artists represented with different works stand for diverse positions from East and West.
This exhibition breaks with the traditional but artistically unproductive division into West and East German art. The actual development of art did not conform to models from political history. Instead, themes and techniques were developed in East Berlin and Cologne, in Annaberg and Oberkassel and in Dresden or Munich as a result of the exploration of artistic ways of working that today display numerous parallels and subtle interrelations.

ifa Exhibitions abroad
ifa plans and organises exhibitions of contemporary art from Germany, presenting insights into the fine arts, photography and film, and design and architecture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. These exhibitions tour the world for several years and are shown in international museums all over the world. In our diverse art education programmes we link the German art scene with international artists and cultural institutions and protagonists, setting up cooperation projects and networks. Our exhibitions create local forums for encounter, open up international perspectives, and build sustained stores of knowledge. ifa also provides loans to museums for special exhibitions and presentations.
