BOOKED OUT: Painting Berlin.
About Ernst Ludwig Kirchners and Tamina Amadyars Pictures of the Big City

Talk with Tamina Amadyar (artist) and Florian Illies (art historian, author)

How does one deal artistically with the overload that is called Berlin? When Ernst Ludwig Kirchner came to Berlin in 1912, he threw himself into the breathless hustle and bustle of an exploding cosmopolitan city and created pictures of the Potsdamer Platz of a shimmering, searching, lost metropolis. What did Tamina Amadyar, who was born in Kabul and came to Berlin via Düsseldorf and California, find in this city one hundred years later? Where Kirchner sought the hectic bustle of activity, Amadyar finds the corners and deserted streets, reinforced by a lockdown, like a deserted backdrop, at peace, traffic-calmed but in the turmoil of colour. In conversation with Tamina Amadyar, Florian Illies searches for answers to an unpaintable city amidst her paintings and those of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in the Brücke-Museum.
