Christo and Jeanne-Claude
Projects 1963–2020

Ingrid & Thomas Jochheim Collection

Christo and Jeanne-Claude are among the most popular artist couples of our time. More than almost any other artistic working and living community, they succeeded in breaking through the boundaries of the art world and in arousing the enthusiasm of a broad public, across all social strata, for their shrouding of buildings and their installations in large landscape spaces.
The PalaisPopulaire presents works from the Jochheim Collection, which traces the history of their spectacular large-scale projects. The focus is on the wrapping of the Reichstag, which made the Berlin parliament building shine in a unique way twenty-five years ago, but rare early objects are also on view.

Time Present
Photography from the Deutsche Bank Collection

It is a journey through time in several respects. Encompassing over 60 works, Time Present at the PalaisPopulaire unfolds a panorama of contemporary photographic art. The exhibition presents a broad spectrum of international photography collected by Deutsche Bank over the course of four decades. Alongside well-known names such as Hiroshi Sugimoto, Gerhard Richter, and Mathilde ter Heijne, new acquisitions for the collection by Gauri Gill and Viviane Sassen will be on view.

K. H. Hödicke. A Retrospective

In the early 1960s, the painter K. H. Hödicke (born in Nuremberg in 1938) was one of the spokespeople for a small group of impetuous young lateral thinkers who wanted to revolutionize painting. No sooner had German postwar modernism rejoined the international artistic trend towards the abstract than it revolted against this new doctrine with a revival of figurative painting, which had been declared obsolete. The retrospective K. H. Hödicke, which after its premiere at the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München is now on view in Berlin, provides insight into an almost inexhaustible artistic oeuvre. The combination of drawing, painting, and sculpture demonstrates that K. H. Hödicke is undoubtedly a modern classic, albeit with a decades-long career that has retained its freshness and relevance.
