This converted former glass warehouse makes a stunning gallery space. The central two storey hall is cut across the diagonal with two sculptural staircases meeting in the middle. They lead up to a collection of modern art, photography, sculpture and architecture created in Berlin from 1880 to 1980. Thematically, the art moves from conservative 19th-century to radical 20th-century ideas. The rooms downstairs feature temporary exhibitions, the latest being ‘Art of the Novembergruppe’ from 9 November 2018 until 11 March 2019, featuring pieces from the group that supported freedom, democracy and diversity within the Weimar Republic. The gallery is a little off the beaten track so you can wander the artworks delightfully free of crowds.
