Schloss Neuhardenberg Foundation | Christiane Möbus
April 1 - June 4, 2023 | Schloss Neuhardenberg | Wildwechsel
On 1 April, the Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg opens the exhibition Wildwechsel with works by Christiane Möbus (*1947). Möbus uses the example of her own family history to examine the effects of flight and expulsion on the next generation.
In her most personal exhibition to date, she makes her own family history the subject of discussion for the first time; in the objects and photographs on display, she creates impressive images as ciphers of her past and family relationships. The works presented create a sounding board for viewers to make their own associations about origins and family.

25 years "Casa di Goethe" in Rome
23 March - December 2023: „Casa di Goethe intervenzioni“
On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the "Museum Casa di Goethe" in Rome is taking a fresh look at its permanent exhibition. Together with students from the Weissensee art college in Berlin, interventions have been created that bring contemporary reflections and new insights into the presentation of the collection and connect the museum to our present. From 24 March until the end of the year, the "Casa di Goethe intervenzioni" will be on display in the permanent exhibition of the Casa di Goethe.
The 'Intervenzioni' are a first step in setting the course for the future of Germany's only museum abroad. The apartment in Via del Corso, where Goethe lived with other artists from 1786 to 1788, will be more closely connected to the here and now and developed into a place of lively cultural exchange.
Museum Küppersmühle | Duisburg | E. W. Nay - Retrospektive
March 24 - August 06, 2023
Last year, Ernst Wilhelm Nay would have turned 120. To mark the occasion, the MKM Museum Küppersmühle is showing a comprehensive, retrospective exhibition with works from all five decades of his artistic career. Nay remains a famous protagonist of German post-war modernism to this day. His formal abstraction asserted itself parallel to Informel
The exhibition at the MKM presents around 70 paintings covering all creative phases of Nay's oeuvre. Beginning with his late paintings, the retrospective leads chronologically back through the stylistically and thematically different stages of his work. Depending on the period in which they were created, Nay's works fascinate with their intensive colour-form interaction, their surface-space composition or figure-ground correlation.

Alfred Ehrhardt Stiftung | Berlin | Thomas Brummett: Seeking the Infinite
April 15 - July 9, 2023
The work of the US American Thomas Brummett (*1955 in Colorado) is like a spiritual quest. Brummett uses photography to question how naturalscience, and physics in particular, can shed light on the true nature of the world. He searches for visual manifestations that reveal nature’s complex systems. The central element of his series Light Projections und Infinities shown in the Alfred Ehrhardt Stiftung is the visual investigation into multiple infinite systems he has explored.
Michael Werner Gallery | Berlin | Jean Arp
March 4 - April 15, 2023
Jean Arp (1886 - 1966) is considered an exemplary artist of the avant-garde. As a co-inventor of Dada and Surrealism, he was always the first to distance himself ironically from all Isms. Finally arriving in Paris in 1925, Arp confronted the still short tradition of modernism there. His sculptural works culminate the "classic" of modernism: namely, expressing contemporary principles of form in timeless forms. The exhibition takes these bronze sculptures as its starting point. They represent a continuum of works that lasted almost four decades and on which Arp's success in the new art centre of New York at the end of the 1950s was based.
