Opening Exhibitions
Impressionism: The Art of Landscape
The Museum Barberini opens with works ranging from Claude Monet to Gustave Caillebotte.

We will present the exhibition Impressionism: The Art of Landscape from January 23 to May 28, 2017. River and marine landscapes, fields and gardens in bloom, reflections on water, and winter landscapes were themes used by the impressionists to carry out their experiments. With works by artists such as Claude Monet (1840–1926), Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919), and Gustave Caillebotte (1848–1894) the show brings major representatives of impressionism to Potsdam, presenting artistic explorations into what at the time was a new, modern understanding of nature.

Modern Art Classics
The Museum Barberini opens with works ranging from Max Liebermann to Wassily Kandinsky

The exhibition Modern Art Classics draws a line from German Impressionism and Fauvism to Abstract Art after 1945 and addresses this dynamic era. 60 works, it recounts Art Stories which reveal that modern art has more than one story.

Barberini App

Our app lets you explore the galleries of the reconstructed Barberini Palace before the museum opens. Audiovisual documentation is concealed in 360° panoramas detailing the building’s eventful history. Recollections from contemporary witnesses breathe life into the historic Barberini Palace. When the Museum Barberini opens, the app will become the Barberini Guide, providing you with more information on our exhibitions.
