“Canova und der Tanz” (Canova and the Dance) has Antonio Canova’s
dancer, one of the most important and popular works of art in the BodeMuseum, as its centre focus. Supplemented by international items on
loan, the exhibition is dedicated to the sensuous theme of dance.
“Canova und der Tanz“ (October 2016 – January 2017)
In the Neues Museum (New Museum) ancient Egyptian and ancient
Chinese art treasures will be displayed together side by side for the first
time, including many exhibits which have never been seen before in
Europe, in the exhibition “China und Ägypten: Wege zweier
Hochkulturen“ (China and Egypt: the paths of two advanced
civilisations). Each of the 250 exhibits has its own history and, at the
same time, represents an entire culture.
“China und Ägypten“ (1.5. – 31.10.2017)
A further highlight is the exhibition “Vision Pop” in the special exhibition
rooms in the Kulturforum. It presents the art and lifestyle of the 1960s, a
time full of visions, dreams, upheaval and political criticism: mini-skirts,
pop music, interior design and the peace movement became cult.
“Vision Pop“ (27.4. – 17.8.2018)
