Wall Works, Hamburger Bahnhof

31 January 2014

On Thursday we took the design students to the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum. As well as famous Pop Art and Abstract Expressionist works by the likes of Warhol, Rauschenburg and Anselm Kiefer, the group got to see the remarkable Wall Works expo - a selection of pieces celebrating the wall as a powerful space for all kinds of visual communication. Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Arte Povera, Video Art and stencil graffiti on a gigantic scale were all represented by artists such as Daniel Buren, Sarah Morris and Nasan Tur.

We also caught the preparations for the upcoming Susan Philipsz exhibition, with the gallery team installing the typographic annotations to the pieces.
