Anything Goes? Berlin Architecture in the 1980swith Isa Melsheimer
Through August 16, 2021
Widely labelled “postmodern”, it drew on structural typologies and stylistic devices from the past and tested alternative urban lifestyles. In the run-up to the celebrations marking 750 years since the original town charter, the entries submitted to the “Internationale Bauausstellung” in West Berlin in 1984/87 and the “Bauausstellung” of 1987 in East Berlin turned the city into a kind of architectural laboratory observed from well beyond its boundaries. Even at the design stage, some were already attracting criticism as artistically misguided, and significant examples of this era in architecture have since disappeared, been revamped or else threatened by demolition.
This exhibition is the first attempt to show who and what set their stamp on the buildings and visions developed for East and West Berlin in the final decade before the Wall fell. Installations by artist Isa Melsheimer and the Guerilla Architects offer a contemporary perspective on the postmodern architectures on show.

Martin Boyce: Recurring DreamsThrough September 4, 2021
Martin Boyce's lyrical objects and installations from the Haubrok Collection are largely based on the formal language of the brothers Jan and Joël Martel, who worked together with the architect Robert Mallet-Stevens in Paris on the intersection of Art Deco, Cubism, and Bauhaus. The Concrete Trees, to which martin refers in various works, are particularly well known. The exhibition entitled Recurring Dreams consists exclusively of works from the Haubrok Collection.

Ways of Seeing Abstraction – Works from the Deutsche Bank Collectionwith Karin Sander
Through February 7, 2022
Aspects of contemporary abstract art, coupled with historical reminiscences, are the focus of the third exhibition showcasing works from the Deutsche Bank Collection at the PalaisPopulaire. The selection includes some 168 works from 1959 to 2021.
Karin Sander's work Wandstück / Wall piece is created by removing an extremely thin layer of paint with all its irregularities, about one-tenth of a millimeter thick, from the wall surface. By sanding the wall down numerous times using increasingly fine sandpaper, the wall beneath, which is covered with emulsion paint, is polished to a high gloss. The picture is created not by applying material but by removing it. The polished surfaces of the wallpieces mirror sections of their surroundings and alter their composition according to the position from which they are contemplated.

Sculpture Parkwith Angela Bulloch
Heavy Metal Stack of Six: Greige is from a series of sculptures—assembled from modular shapes—that combine Angel Bulloch's interest in the logic of geometry and seriality with graphic and sculptural qualities. The surface of the vertically assembled rhomboid shapes, painted in three colors, creates an optical illusion of pushing and pulling planes, giving the work an almost abstract quality, shifting between two and three dimensions.

Intimacy: New Queer Art from Berlin and Beyondwith AA Bronson and Simon Fujiwara
Through August 30, 2021
Intimacy is one of the central topics in queer art. Here, the relationship between the public and the private is expressed in a distinctive way. Even though it can be risky for queer minorities to make their intimate relations public, new forms and versions of intimacy have constantly evolved, especially in Berlin – with people finding ecstasy on the dancefloor, adventure in the darkroom, or tenderness in their polyamorous relationships.
A FIRE IN MY BELLYwith Thomas Demand
Through December 12, 2021
A FIRE IN MY BELLY is a large collection exhibition, featuring over thirty artists from different generations and backgrounds, including Thomas Demand, who in a variety of mediums and contexts examine the ways in which experiences of violence and loss are enacted, witnessed, and transformed. Comprising film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, and poetry, the exhibition explores how artists negotiate and transcend these experiences through personal and political gestures of protest and resistance. The works included in A FIRE IN MY BELLY thus alternate between moments of tension, poetry, and release.
