Hello World: Revising a Collection
Herausgeber: Udo Kittelmann
The collection is the foundation of a museum, which itself is shaped by contingent political and cultural conditions. With the exhibition Hello World. Revising a Collection, the Nationalgalerie explores the possibility of how a collection predominantly committed to the art of Western Europe and North America might broaden its scope by combining non-Western artistic tendencies and a transcultural approach. What would the collection be like today had a more cosmopolitan understanding of art informed its beginnings? Against the backdrop of an increasinglyglobalised present and its attendant opportunities and fault lines such a revision seems especially urgent. The collection of the Nationalgalerie serves this exhibition both as a point of departure and frame of reference. As an institution, the Nationalgalerie of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin today encompasses five museums: Alte Nationalgalerie, Neue Nationalgalerie, Museum Berggruen, Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg and Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart - Berlin.
