Travelling the World. Art from Germany.
Museum for Contemporary Art | Belgrade | 25.01.2019 – 24.03.2019
Exhibition | Around 350 art works from ifa touring exhibitions over the last six decades will be shown. These are works that represented German art on every continent and are now presented with a new perspective on the history of art. Nearly 100 artists 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.
