    Ausstellungsansicht Ideal und Form, Friedrichswerdersche Kirche 2020

The exhibition "Ideal and Form" traces the lines of development of the long 19th century into modernity with sculptures and sculpture from the Schinkel period to the Empire and invites visitors to rediscover the Berlin school of sculpture, which was already internationally oriented at the time.
The Friedrichswerder Church, planned by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and built between 1824 and 1830, has been a museum church since 1987 and is also a branch of the Old National Gallery. It offers the unique opportunity to experience sculptures of the 19th century in an architecture from that period that has been preserved as far as possible in its original state - and in ever-changing light. As the most comprehensive collection of 19th century sculptural art, the National Gallery 's sculpture collection occupies an outstanding position within the German museum landscape.
A permanent exhibition of the National Gallery of the National Museums in Berlin.
