The MACBA Foundation organized a trip to Berlin with our collaborators from May 31st to June 2nd. This consisted in exclusive visits to discover the fascinating artistic contemporaneity of the German capital.

Located in an old transformer station, the Konrad Fischer Galerie owned by Konrad and Dorothee Fischer welcomed us with a display of works by the landartist Richard Long. At The Feuerle Collection we attended the enriching juxtaposition of international contemporary artists and Imperial Chinese furniture and Southeast Asian sculptures. Later we visited the collection of Erika and Rolf Hoffmann, the Hoffmann Collection, open to the public in a rehabilitated old factory in Berlin-Mitte. The eccentric contemporary art temple that hosts works within the walls of a 1942 bunker, the Boros Collection, was a must too. The first journey ended with a visit to the inspiring Studio Tomás Saraceno, where the artist shares the space with professionals from a wide range of fields, from designers to scientists.

Along the second journey we enjoyed two museum visits. Firstly, at the Museum für Fotografie / Helmut-Newton Stiftung, to the Bauhaus und die Fotografie exhibition, which explores the Bauhaus in relation to its fundamental influence on photography. Last but not least, at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, where we could get closer to the work by Jack Whitten, Emil Nolde and Andreas Mühe through the Jack Whitten: Jack’s Jacks, Emil Nolde. A German Legend. The Artist during the Nazi Regime and Andreas Mühe. Mischpoche exhibitions.
