Once again, the Berlin State Museums will be represented at this year’s ITB Berlin. The focus will be on exhibition highlights and arrangements for groups of visitors. In 2015 the art gallery’s attention will centre on the famous painter Sandro Botticelli. The paintings on loan from around the world at The Botticelli Renaissance art exhibition document how original works by Botticelli have become their own “brand“. In addition to works by Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol and René Magritte the exhibition will also provide a fresh insight into Botticelli’s work. The Botticelli Renaissance is on display at the art gallery from 24 September 2015 to 24 January 2016. A further highlight will be the exhibition entitled ’Impressionism – Expressionism. Turning Point in Art“. This is the first time that an exhibition will be displaying both these art movements and establishing connections between them. Their common reference points as well as their differences become even more pronounced in the Alte Nationalgalerie from 22 May to 20 September 2015.
With their 15 collections of different artworks the Berlin State Museums are home to artwork and cultural treasures of a universal nature. Their collections are distributed throughout 19 locations in Berlin and encompass art from European and non-European countries as well as archaeological and ethnological finds from almost every country, culture and age. The Berlin State Museums belong to the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation.
