For The Love Of Art

Where Berlin - - WELCOME TO BERLIN -

The fall is al­ways an ex­cit­ing month for cul­ture lovers: With the start of the new con­cert sea­son and a plethora of ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tions, it's time to get out our cal­en­dars and mark the most im­por­tant cul­tural dates.

This year, Ber­lin's mu­se­ums have so many ex­hi­bi­tions in store, it's just go­ing to be hard to pick. Fans of neo­clas­si­cal art should not miss Canova and the Dance at the Bode Mu­seum, which opens on 21 Oct with many of the sculp­tor's draw­ings and stat­ues. From 13 Oct, the Samm­lung Scharf-Ger­sten­berg will be pre­sent­ing sur­re­al­ist art, while from 19 Nov, the Mu­seum Berggruen across the street will be com­par­ing the works of great masters such as Pi­casso, Cézanne, and Matisse with those of Amer­i­can mod­ernist painter Ge­orge Condo. You will have to wait un­til 11 Nov to delve into the hal­lu­cino­genic world of Flem­ish painter Hierony­mus Bosch at the Gemälde­ga­lerie, but mean­while you can gaze at mar­velous pho­tog­ra­phy at C/O Ber­lin and at the Mu­seum of Pho­tog­ra­phy (p. 42), or learn about Ger­man his­tory at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, where the ex­hi­bi­tion The Bri­tish View: Ger­many – Mem­o­ries of a Na­tion, open­ing on 8 Oct, presents 200 Bri­tish Mu­seum arte­facts that out­line 600 years of Ger­man his­tory.
