The Berlinische Galerie is one of the youngest museums in the capital and has been collecting art created in Berlin from 1870 to the present day – with a local focus and international aspirations at the same time. Founded in 1975 as a private association, the Landesmuseum opened its own building in a generously converted industrial hall with 4,600 square metres of exhibition space in 2004 in the vicinity of the Jewish Museum. Visual arts – painting, graphics, sculpture, multimedia – photography, architecture and artist archives form a pool from which exciting dialogues emerge through interdisciplinary entanglements. Outstanding areas of the collection are Dada Berlin, the New Objectivity and the Eastern European Avant-garde. The art of divided Berlin and the reunited metropolis is another focal point.
