The Circle Walked Casually at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle

Side benefit of my job was being able to visit the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle exhibit after meeting with the buyer for the fabulous ArtStore there. The current exhibit is awesome, featuring works by Louise Bourgeois, Otto Dix, Wassily Kandinsky, and Käthe Kollwitz. Curated by Victoria Noorthoorn, the exhibit is called The Circle Walked Casually, and takes as its inspiration the surrealist short story "Genealogy" by Uruguayan author Felisberto Hernández.

Although the Guggenheim name is no longer associated with the KunstHalle, the quality of the exhibits that I have seen at this location just since I moved here in July has been amazing. The space has lost none of its energy (I went to several exhibits here in past trips to Berlin) and I highly recommend getting to the venue to those who live here in Berlin, and those who are planning to visit. It's even FREE on Mondays, when the Stadtgalleries are all closed.

The Circle Walked Casually is open until 2 March 2014. The KunstHalle is open daily from 10am until 8pm (check the web site for holiday closings). Unter den Linden 13-15, Berlin.
