Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to visit the Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, that’s the museum of Modern Art in Berlin, the other day. The exhibiton “Hello World, Revising a Collection” works from the museum’s collection (and some on loan) were on show. What a wonderful show!

The way the exhibition was layed out was very new and interesting to us; paintings were accompanied by groups of imagery, or narratives, ‘explaining’ the art. Both a joy to look at and very educational as well. Most of the times ‘educational’ isn’t a nice word for an art exhibiton, but in this case it is. Nothing childish about the narratives here: without using any text, they allowed the visitor to get associative information in a visual way.
Wow, we , at Mimi Berlin, loved that!!
“The exhibition “Hello World” aims to reflect the character of the collection, marked by these complexities and multiple ruptures. Instead of constructing a linear development of history of twentieth- and twenty-first-century art, works of the collection provide points of departure for thirteen narratives, which range from the retracing of vestiges of history to the associative intertwinement of thought lines and pictorial worlds. The exhibition focuses on moments of transcultural exchange, artistic collaboration and border-crossings that become apparent through figures such as Marta Minujin, Tomoyoshi Murayama, Wolfgang Paalen, Walter Spies, Rabindranath Tagore or Heinrich Vogeler. The Nationalgalerie’s permanent collection features major figures and movements in modern art.” read more https://www.smb.museum/en/museums-institutions/hamburger-bahnhof/exhibitions/detail/hello-world-revision-einer-sammlung.html
