Guided tour

Curator's Tour Whose Expression?
with Lisa Marei Schmidt (Director, Brücke-Museum)

In the curatorial tours, the curators of Whose Expression? and Transition Exhibition give an insight into their working processes and the exhibitions.

The Brücke artists lived and worked during a period when Imperial Germany was one of the largest colonial powers in Europe. The exhibition Whose Expression? The Brücke Artists and the Colonial Context examines their works against this historical background.
The Transition Exhibition at the neighbouring Kunsthaus Dahlem contextualises this part of Schmidt-Rottluff’s collection from a critical perspective for the first time. It is a presentation of the collection as well as a critical engagement with the format of exhibiting collections from colonial contexts.  Contemporary artists and cultural practitioners were invited by curator Paz Guevara to engage with the works and their colonial history. Their artistic interventions offer propositions for new narratives and attempt to problematise and unlearn colonial continuities in the presentation of the collection.
