From 22 March to 16 June 2019, the Gropius Bau explores the concept of crafts and handmade processes in Berlin’s contemporary art scene, taking its history as a former museum for decorative arts and educational institution as a starting point.
“And Berlin Will Always Need You. Art, Craft and Concept Made in Berlin” is a distinctly contemporary art exhibition that sheds light on artists’ practices in the city, exploring the concept of crafts and handmade processes in Berlin’s contemporary art scene. Presenting an evocative series of existing and newly commissioned works the exhibition engages with traditional methods of production, aesthetics and materiality, and examines historical artifacts and objects.
Through Berlin’s dynamic contemporary art scene, the exhibition expands and redefines perceptions of art and craft, while taking into consideration the aspect of display. “And Berlin Will Always Need You. Art, Craft and Concept Made in Berlin” shows the incredible variety of artistic practices that can be found in Berlin today and demonstrates the Gropius Bau’s commitment to continue to provide a regular platform for Berlin artists.
Beba at Martin Gropius Bau, the new museum restaurant based in Mitte had their official opening this past weekend. The new cafe, is a cooperation between Berlin gastro veteran, Cynthia Barcomi and InFarm, along with some new local talent. The offering at the new cafe will utilize a “vegetable-focused menu inspired by ancient Jewish cuisines from around the world.” They will of course be sourcing their produce in house and supplying pastries in the Barcomi tradition.
Date: Wednesday, June 12th, 11am – 12:30pm, lunch after optional. Please let us know if you plan to stay by Thursday, June 8th so we can reserve a table.
