Martin Gropius Bau x MoMA New York

BERLIN - The ­­Martin Gropius Bau recently opened an exhibition of the Judith Rothschild Foundation collection of Contemporary Drawings in partnership with MoMA New York. The exhibition, entitled Kompass, aims to refer to a compass as a mode of measurement and representation in contemporary drawing. Comprised of works from 250 both emerging and also established artists, curator Christian Rattemeyer arranges the collection to portray a transition between figurative works to careful pairings of minimalist and abstract kunstwerk. One of the most compelling galleries is a room of variations, using mathematics and intimate drawing technique with outstanding examples from Fred Sandback, Hanne Darboven, Blinky Palermo, and Robert Barry. The entire collection also features the work of David Hammons, Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Robert Rauschenberg, and Sherrie Levine beside contemporary artists like Kai Althoff and younger artists like Christian Holstad, Nick Mauss, Seb Patane and Amelie von Wulffen. The comprehensive collection demands thoughtful appreciation. Up through 29 May, visit before the show returns to New York!
