This new space in Berlin for post-war German modernism sparks interest mainly for the building’s checkered past—before WWII it was constructed as a studio for one of the Nazi party’s predilect artists, Arno Breker. Under the watchful eye of architects Petra and Paul Kahlfeldt, who are charged with its restoration, the studio has been re-cast as a cultural institution. The opening show and subsequent exhibitions will feature both East and West German art in tandem, as an attempt to reconcile these two streams of German modernism which were segregated for many years after the war.
