Geta Brătescu

September 27, 2018 – January 25, 2019

Opening: Wednesday, September 26, 6pm

Geta Brătescu is one of Romania’s most important conceptual artists, already under socialist rule she created abstract works in which patterns, surfaces, lines, colors and structures intertwine and which opposed the official state art. Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) now presents the first solo exhibition of Geta Brătescu in a Berlin institution.

The diverse oeuvre of Geta Brătescu includes drawings, collages made of fabric or paper, graphic works, performances, experimental films and photographs as well as objects and spatial installations. In the artist’s avant-garde work the boundaries between art and life are blurred; at the center of her works are questions of memory and history, human identity, normativity, and the female gender, among other things. Since the 1990s, she has been creating more and more series in which she consistently runs through her formal language. Neuer Berliner Kunstverein presents historical and new works by Geta Brătescu as well as a film about and with the artist.

A project in cooperation with the Romanian Cultural Institute Berlin.
