The Beauty of the Big City

Ephraim-Palais | Berlin
€5 - €7
The Beauty of the Big City) is the title of a book published in 1908 by the German philosopher and architect August Endell. It invites readers to open their eyes and minds for the secret beauty hidden in between grey walls and crowded streets.

Using Endell’s basic ideas as a starting point, the major new exhibition at Museum Ephraim-Palais shows how artists from the 19th century to today have seen Berlin's urban and social structure and translated it into art. Whether they pictured Berlin as ‘Athens on the Spree’ or as a bustling metropolis: Their topic is the city’s external appearance and its inner beauty that can be revealed to us through painting.

In this way, visitors to the exhibition are invited to sharpen their own vision of the city’s essence, concealed behind the dirt and grey facades.

The exhibition is over since the 26/08/2018
