Born almost 40 years ago in 1975, the Berlinische Galerie - as its name suggests - specialises in art from Berlin, and having witnessed so many recent but important historical changes, is uniquely placed to do so. With a contemporary bent that reflects its creation by citizens (rather than claiming state or royal patronage), the gallery includes a wide range of painting, graphics, sculpture, multimedia, photography and architecture - all produced since 1870. The Berlinische Galerie is certainly one of the best places to get a true experience of the city as expressed through its art. Their roster of temporary exhibitions is even more exciting than the permanent collection, and this K.H. Hödicke show is no exception. A pioneer of German neo-expressionism, Hödicke has forged a career that spans painting, sculpture and film over five decades. Examples of his vast collection of work will be on display here for the first time.
