    Focusing on Otto Piene’s early artistic career in the 1960s and early ’70s, the exhibition at the Neue Nationalgalerie presents a large-scale re-creation of a projection Peine originally produced in New York in 1967 while collaborating with the ZERO group. Shown in the large hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie, Pienne’s handpainted slides create an experience that the artist has described as a “poetic journey through space.”

    Huma Bhabha’s first solo exhibition in Berlin reflects the Pakistan-born, New York–based artist’s recent experience in Germany, as an artist-in-residence at Berlin’s American Academy. The sculptures and collages made during her residency in 2013 make reference to German Expressionism as well as the work of Georg Baselitz and Anselm Keifer.

    Vera Lutter’s latest photographs were made using a camera obscura—a darkened room with a pinhole that projects an upside down image onto photographic paper mounted on the back wall—though these new works show the artist treating less recognizable subjects than she has in the past with the same technique. The subjects of her current exhibition include a Romanesque medieval abbey, a radio telescope in Germany, and a forest in upstate New York.

    Timed to coincide with the traveling Philip Guston exhibition (at Hamburg's Sammlung Falckenberg until May 25; then at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk until June 28), Aurel Scheibler is showing three of the late artist's charcoal drawings along with seven oil paintings. While two early paintings from 1961 and 1962 show Guston working in a fully abstract style, the later works reveal the artist's mature figurative style.

    Since Elizabeth Peyton first engaged with the work of German composer Richard Wagner in 2011, when she created new paintings for an exhibition at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera, the artist has made many works related to opera. Her current show features portraits and still lifes inspired by Wagner’s nineteenth-century opera Tannhäuser.

    Presenting photographs made between 1968 and 1971, this exhibition focuses on Zofia Kulik’s earliest artistic work, made while Kulik was still a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Select fragments from a large body of work show the artist's interest in the relationship—and theoretical intersection—between film and sculpture.
