Tattoo

Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg I was very interested in this exhibition. This theme gives a lot of visual possibilities and was curious about the approach a museum like this would take when planning such an exhibition. I usually like the innovative ideas of the MKG’s curators, and enjoy…

Fette Beute. Reichtum zeigen

  I visited the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe for another exhibition, and ended up in this one without any idea of the theme or the contents. Despite my complete ignorance around emblems, marks, signs or other evidences of “richness”, I ended my visit with a pleasant impression about the…

LWL-1

LWL-Museum für Kunst und Kultur

  This is probably the best experience I had in a Museum last year. Although I had great expectations, the new LWL Museum surprised me and I am eager to go back, it’s just perfect.   Münster has a well-known reputation as a city where you can live and enjoy…

Belvedere-1

Upper Belvedere

  When you go to Vienna, you have to visit the Belvedere. Every tourist guide says so; every person you ask for recommendations recommends it… you should go. You may see there Klimt’s Kiss and only that makes the visit to Belvedere worth it. You may also see a few…

Web-Bucerius

Pompeii. Gods, Myths, Man

  Just a couple of weeks before its closing, I had time -at last- to visit this exhibition around Pompeii. My expectations were high, as I use to like very much the exhibitions in the Bucerius Kunst Forum. I couldn’t imagine how disappointed I’d get.   It is not easy…

Weltkulturen-Museum-1

Weltkulturen Museum

    At first, I wanted to write something about the current exhibition on this museum, “Foreign exchange (or histories you wouldn’t tell a stranger)”, but the more I think of this museum, the exhibition and their proposal, the more I want to write about they as a “post-ethnographic” project…

Krieg und Propaganda 6

War and Propaganda 14/18

  This exhibition was a way of participating on the century of the WW1’s anniversary. As it is very difficult to make a complete exhibition about such a war (goal achieved at the Deutsches Historisches Museum as posted here: http://culture-ant.com/1914-1918-wwi), the staff of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg…

Cap San Diego HH 1

Cap San Diego

  Hamburg has the third port of Europe (in terms of activity) and the 15th largest of the world. As a famous maritime city, it is possible to find a lot of cultural and tourist attractions related to its port. There are museums, walking and sailing tours, colourful neighborhoods, festivals,…

Topographie des Terrors

Topographie des Terrors

    The Topography of Terror Foundation was founded by the state of Berlin and the Federal Republic of Germany after an exhibition on 1987 celebrating Berlin’s 750th anniversary. As a political institution, the aim was to build a documentation center to be established in an important part of the city,…

Gardens 2 - Louisiana

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

    Last July I was invited by a friend to stay in a small Danish town. Before my trip, he told me that we may visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, what gave me time to see its website (very complete and appealing)… after what I really wanted…

1914–1918. The First World War. Deutsches Historisches Museum

  I was very curious about how an exhibition over a big war can be conceived, without hurting anyone’s feelings. Too many countries participated in this war, too many people died in this first modern war (with modern weapons that could kill and damage on a larger scale). It is…

Flying-Boxes

David Bowie in Martin-Gropius-Bau

  I went to Berlin for a couple of days this week and I really wanted to visit the David Bowie’s exhibition that I have read so much about. On the one hand, I was curious of how an exhibition of a living man can be set up… with which…

Mahnmal St. Nikolai

Mahnmal St. Nikolai… or how to do it simply good

    Mahnmal St. Nikolai in Hamburg, Germany, is a memorial museum built over (and under) the rests of St. Nikolai’s Church, which was destroyed during the WWII. It is divided in three different parts: the shattered church, a museum and an observatory at the top of the tower of the…
