Last Chance to See Art of Two Germanys

It feels like it just opened yesterday—actually it was back in January—but Art of Two Germanys/Cold War Cultures is closing this weekend. Sunday is your last chance to see it, whether for the first, second, or third time. (With more than 300 works, it definitely rewards multiple viewings). From here, the exhibition will head to two venues in Germany: next stop will be the Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg,  on view from May 27–September 6; after that it’s off to the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin, on view October 3–January 10 and coinciding with the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Whether you’ve yet to see it or you already have, you might also want to use the occasion of this closing weekend to check out the fascinating, in-depth timeline of the period covered in the exhibition, or to revisit some of the posts we’ve done here at Unframed, including looks at works by Dieter Roth, Thomas Schütte, and Gerhard Richter. There were also a few interesting posts by curatorial assistant Dorothea Schoene on the use of floral wallpaper in Richter’s Volker Bradke; by editor Sara Cody on working on the exhibition catalogue (also including a video interview with exhibition curator Stephanie Barron); and by photography curator Charlotte Cotton on LACMA’s acquisition of photographs by three East German photographers that are featured in the exhibition.
