Organized in conjunction with the artist’s trust, the current Robert Heinecken exhibition presents collages, sculptures, and photographs made between 1969 and 1999. Among the important historic works on view are Heinecken’s “Periodicals” from the late 1960s and early 1970s, which were recently shown in New York and Los Angeles as part of the artist’s retrospective that traveled from MoMA to the Hammer Museum.
Timed to coincide with the Martin-Gropius-Bau’s ZERO group exhibition, this show dedicated to the movement’s cofounder Otto Piene presents works made between 1962 and 2004. Showcasing the artist’s wide range of media, the exhibition includes paintings, fire gouache on board, and a site-specific light installation.

Polish artist Alicja Kwade’s solo show explores themes of time and remains. Video and sculptural works featuring clock hands and broken glass describe cycles of creation and destruction.

Tony Cragg’s latest sculptures in wood, bronze, and marble continue his formal exploration of organic and technological structures. The new large-scale works are on view at the main gallery as well as at the nearby Buchmann Box space.
Elie Nadelman’s (1882–1946) first solo show in Germany since 1923 features plaster, papier-maché sculptures, and works on paper. These materials reflect the Polish-born, New York–based artist’s meager means following the 1929 stock-market crash, which forced him to trade marble and bronze for Plastolene and paper.
Hot on the heels of the Guggenheim’s ZERO group show, this celebration of the movement features work by more than forty international artists (many of whom are also affiliated with other movements, including Nouveau Réalisme, Arte Povera, Minimalism, Op art, and kinetic art) whose ideas are in synch with those of ZERO founders Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günther Uecker. In conjunction with this major museum show dedicated to artists who sought an absolute new beginning for art following World War II, Berlin’s ZERO foundation has organized an exhibition featuring 200 additional works.

Tracing the evolution of Joseph Beuys’s sculptures, this exhibition begins with early works influenced by Wilhelm Lehmbruck and Ewald Mataré. Many of the sculptures on view hail from Céline and Heiner Bastian’s own collection and are being shown at the gallery for the first time ever, following a long-term loan to the Hamburger Bahnhof.
