Before/After. Destruction of cultural sites in Ukraine

Exhibition from February 25 until May 31

German National Library


„The invading Russian forces have been destroying Ukraine’s cultural sites and heritage since the very first day. The war is murdering people, ravaging cities and infrastructures, and leaving devastation, misery and ruin in its wake. As preservers of cultural identity, museums and libraries have been hit particularly hard: the war has already laid waste to well over 500 cultural institutions and areas of public life. Valuable testimonies to Ukrainian and European identity have been lost forever.“


ART DECO PORCELLAIN. From the collection Prof. Peter W. Schatt

Ongoing exhibition



„Located somewhere between ornament and utilitarian object, the porcelain jars of the 1920s and early 1930s captivate with playful forms, teasing handles and great joy of colour. The abstraction of nature with leaf and vine motifs, decorations with an expressive style and strict geometries interpenetrate here. The so-called jagged style of the adjoining pillar hall can also be found on a small scale in the exhibits in the display cases.“


Maria Lassnig: On the Precision of Feelings

Ongoing exhibition

Academy of fine arts Leipzig


With the exhibition Maria Lassnig: On the Precision of Feelings, the Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig presents the development of the Austrian artist’s drawn oeuvre. Around 60 drawings will be shown, which were produced between 1947 and 2012 and primarily depict the female body using a differentiated register of sensations. In addition, a selection of Lassnig’s animated films can be seen, which she made in the 1970s proceeding from her “body awareness drawings” in the context of feminist movements in New York.“
