For The Love Of Art
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.
