Our Visit at Deichtorhallen
We visited Deichtorhallen at the day of the re-opening, after modernisation. Easily to get there at teh weekend. Lots of parking spaces were available, even at this special day:)
We started with the Picasso exhibition.
Picasso in der Kunst der Gegenwart / Picasso in contemporary art until 12.07.2015
It is dedicated to the overwhelming spectrum of modern and contemporary artists’ perspectives on Picasso. With approximately 200 works on loan − from London’s Tate Modern and Paris’s Centre Pompidou, among others − created by 90 internationally known artists, the show deals with Picasso and his impact on art without showing a single Picasso.
Have a look at the Trailer to get some inspiration:
The house of photography.
Twelve outstanding young European photographers will be presenting their photo essays on the topic »The New Social«. The exhebition is running until 31. Mai 2015
We started walking through the hall and looking at the pictures. Soem were cruel and others looked funny, but we were missing the background information and stories about the photos.
Luckily a guided tour started soon and we took part in the 30 minutes tour. A very professionell guided tour with lots of information about the exhibition iteself, the artists and the work. We can just recommend to book or take part on one of this tours, to get all this information, because it is worth to see the pictures and their real expression.
We have had a nice day! It was a sunny day and really informative. We are looking forward to the next exhibitions at Deichtorhallen Hamburg.
