Hello World

Revising a Collection

Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin

hello world„Hello World. Revising a Collection“ is a critical inquiry into the collection of the Nationalgalerie and its predominantly Western focus: What could the collection look like today, had an understanding characterised its concept of art, and consequently also its genesis, that was more open to the world? How might the canon and the art historical narratives themselves have changed through a widening and multiplication of perspectives? With these questions as starting points, the exhibition unfolds in 13 thematic chapters as a many-voiced collaboration of internal and external curators, encompassing the whole exhibition space of the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin.

More than 200 works from the holdings of the Nationalgalerie are supplemented with c. 150 works on loan from other collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, theMuseum für Asiatische Kunst, the Ibero-Amerikanisches Institut and the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. In addition, 400 artworks, magazines and documents are presented in the exhibition from other national and international collections. All in all, the show features works by more than 250 artists: ARTPOOL Studio (György Galántai), Joseph BeuysGuillermo Deisler, Ray Johnson, On Kawara, Jaroslaw Kozlowski, Robert RehfeldtJiří Valoch, Wolf Vostell, Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt etc.
