The Neue Nationalgalerie is celebrating its reopening after five years of closure due to renovation work with the comprehensive collection presentation "The Art of Society", an architectural film installation by the artist Rosa Barba and an exhibition by the sculptor Alexander Calder.
Reopening of the Neue Nationalgalerie with Calder and Barba
Calder's playful, often moving works range from miniature-like small objects to monumental sculptures and mobiles. The exhibition traces this special relationship between size, scale, and spatiality and will have a particularly magical effect in Mies van der Rohe's restored architecture. The open, experimental approach of the exhibition includes the participation of visitors, who will be able to experience some of Calder's works in action.
