"The Twentieth Century - A Century of Art in Germany".

ALTES MUSEUM, NEUE NATIONAL-GALERIE, HAMBURGER BAHNHOF, KULTURFORUM

The most extensive exhibition of German art at the end of the century recalls the similarly mammoth venture in 1906, when the entire Nationalgalerie was emptied to show a survey of German art from 1775 through 1875. For the twentieth century, one needs four such buildings to present the full spectrum, ranging from Franz Marc to Sigmar Polke. To ensure that the spectacle isn't lost in its own boundlessness, the show is arranged thematically, under rubrics like "The Violence of Art," "Matter and Spirit," and "Collage-Montage," which treats film as the presiding medium of the moderns. Sept. 4, 1999-Jan. 9, 2000.
