Jewish Museum Berlin

The Jewish Museum in Berlin is one of the largest in Europe, covering two millennia of German-Jewish history. Very noticable is the shere size of the museum itself, and though I went through in just a few hours, a whole day could quite easily be dedicated to attempting to take in the vast amount of information on show. The architecture of the museum is very intriguing, too, designed by Daniel Libeskind.

The Haburger Bahnhof museum was one of a number I visited while in Berlin. The Hamburger Bahnhof museum contains a comprehensve collection of contemporary art, including that of Roy Litchenstein, Andy Warhol, and Anselm Kiefer, three of my favourite artists & designers. Formerly a railway station, the structure of the museum itself is incredibly impressive, with instillations spread out sporadically. In a seperate gallery area a vast amount of pieces are displayed, Andy Warhol’s works being prominent. Warhol’s work is a keen interest of mine, his “Mao” piece a particular inspiration, depicting the communist Chinease leader. The sizable piece hangs centrally in the gallery, with complementary designs of Warhol’s on the wall behind.
