The Berlinische Galerie is one of the newest museums in the German capital and collects art from Berlin dating from 1870 to the present day - with both a local and international focus. Founded in 1975, the State Museum reopened in its own building close to the Jewish Museum in 2004, moving into a spacious industrial hall that has been rebuilt to provide 4,600 square metres of exhibition space. Fine art - painting, graphics, sculpture, multimedia - photography, architecture and artists' archives provide a rich source, whose interdisciplinary relationships create exciting dialogues. Its outstanding collections include Dada Berlin, the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) and the Eastern European avant-garde. The art of he divided and reunified city of Berlin provides another focus.

Art displayed in many different mediums. This museum also hosts performance artist's work. Do find out who is temporarily showing their work on any given month. There are paintings & sculptures. Much to see, admire and talk about.

The gallery itself is a beautiful modern take on the more brutalist stuff in downtown Berlin and it houses a bright, airy interior. It's a little out of the way compared with some of the other museums but a short bus ride from Checkpoint Charlie...More

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
