After being closed for refurbishment for six years, the Neue Nationalgalerie is celebrating its reopening with the comprehensive collection display The Art of Society, an architectural film installation by artist Rosa Barba and an exhibition of works by major US sculptor Alexander Calder, specially conceived for the gallery’s glass hall. Calder’s experimental works, which often move, range from miniature-like small objects to monumental sculptures and mobiles. This exhibition traces this special relationship between size, scale and spatiality. In Mies van der Rohe’s restored architecture it will have a particularly magical effect. The exhibition’s open, experimental approach invites active participation from visitors, who will be able to experience some of Calder’s works in action.
