Full Description

Berlin is poised to emerge as one of the world's most exciting centers of contemporary art. As artists from different countries flock to the new capital of re-unified Germany, its major museums are undergoing a massive renovation while grant programmes and inexpensive studio space are giving new talents the chance to create and display their art. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Phoenix Museum of Art, this catalogue is the first comprehensive survey of the artistic renaissance of post-wall Berlin. Many of the works - which include paintings, sculpture, photography, film, installation sound and performance art - were completed in this century. In addition to colour illustrations of each of the works, this volume includes essays on the Berlin art scene, the city's recent architecture, and what the future may hold for this exciting nexus of creativity.
