Berlin! Bettina Pousttchi – In Recent Years at Berlinische Galerie

An ongoing exhibition till 6.4.2020 – Do not miss it if your are in town. Bettina Pousttchi (*1971 in Mainz, lives in Berlin) works at the interface between sculpture, photography and architecture. Her temporary photographic interventions in public space often take up whole walls of buildings, referencing the urban or historical context of a place.


Pousttchi articulates percepetions of reality in the digital age and explores the relation-ship between memory and history from a transna-tional perspective. For her exhibition “In Recent Years” at the Berlinische Galerie she has created a façade for the entire entrance zone of the museum. In addition, the first of the big exhibition halls houses an overview of her sculpture and photography, including recent works.

Her exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie begins with an installation for the façade of the museum, a net-like pattern extending across the entire glass front. Inside she offers an overview of her sculpture and photography, including recent works. The sculptures made of mechanically transformed street furniture such as bicycle racks, tree protection barriers and crash barriers demonstrate her interest in systems for ordering public space.
