You can visit the following exhibitions:

Heidi Bucher. Metamorphoses
With Heidi Bucher, Haus der Kunst presents an important and widley overlooked artist of the international neo-avant-gardes, whose latex works explore the constraints and liberation processes of human forms of existence. With her performative work, she directs attention to the body in space, in which experiences, relationships, and emotions are inscribed. The retrospective presents all the artist’s central groups of works to the public for the first time, from their beginnings to the experimental period in Los Angeles, the principal work with the architectural skinnings to the late work created on Lanzarote.

The group exhibition “Sweat” is the result of two years of intensive research. The show is dedicated to the phenomenon of bodies that act together and shape their present. Breaking a sweat in the face of violent attempts to control the human body represents an artistic strategy of resistance. 

Tune. Chuquimamani-Condori & Joshua Chuquimia Crampton
Chuquimamani-Condori is an artist and musician of the Pakaxa Aymara nation, who has also released work under her state name, Elysia Crampton Chuquimia. Her work focuses on questions of sovereignty, physics, and queer resistance, interweaving the past and present in a tone that both celebrates and mourns the “cacophony of the first aurora.”
Her brother Joshua Chuquimia Crampton is an LA-based Aymara guitarist, composer and multi-media artist whose most recent releases include 4 (2021) and The Heart’s Wash (2020), a full-length project of solo guitar compositions that are as meditative and wandering as they are viscerally raw and immediate.

Archiv Galerie 2020/21: Historische Dokumentation
Housed in a centrally located exhibition space, the Archive Gallery represents the visible history of the institution’s varied past. Opened in 1937 as the “House of German Art,” it was one of the Nazi regime’s first showcase structures and a central location for art and propaganda.
