Workshop. Dialog. Music
Members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra Are Guests at the PalaisPopulaire
May 27, 2021, 7 pm

In a chamber music series at the PalaisPopulaire, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker introduce themselves and their instruments and talk in a relaxed atmosphere about the works presented, interpretation questions, the working methods of a chamber music ensemble, and much more. In this way, the natural distance between artist and audience in a normal concert is removed and the evening becomes a place of encounter. On the evening of  May 27, fin de siècle is the theme. Christoph Streuli, violin, and David Riniker, violoncello, will perform.

Be there! You can also follow this event live on our website and YouTube or watch it at a later time. 


Deutsche Bank Collection LIVE - Meet the Artist
Adriana Czernin
June 9, 2021, 6 pm

Adriana Czernins has lived and worked in Vienna, the capital of fin de siècle and opulent Art Nouveau ornamentation, for decades. Thus, Czernin’s early works of nude female bodies, floral patterns, and intricate ornamentation are akin to journeys into the depths of Austrian modernism. However, Czernin has long since reduced and geometrized her formal language. In the process, she drew inspiration for an entire series from a work in Vienna’s Museum of Applied Arts: a tableau of wooden ornaments from the pulpit of Cairo’s Ibn Tulun Mosque from 1296. Whereas previously the female body was enmeshed in ornament, in Czernin’s work the ornament is a metaphor for social and personal entanglements. The artist breaks with the strict symmetry of the over 700-year-old work. She removed ornamental elements, creating a dynamic composition of seemingly free forms that spread out across the pictorial space. Friedhelm Hütte, the curator of the exhibition, talks with Adriana Czernin about patterns and ornaments, composition and formal language, and much more.
