Visionary Mobility
From March 2018 to September 2019, the Bowl of the BMW Museum will be dedicated to a wide range of subjects, including electric mobility, carbon, battery technology and renewable raw materials. A themed area of around 30 stations will demonstrate the diversity of electric mobility, various aspects of sustainable material selection and production, as well as some of the challenges facing emission-free mobility in the future. As part of continuing technological developments, the first approaches to solving these problems have already been implemented successfully. The task now is to make further advancements in digitalisation that would allow for fully autonomous driving. The BMW i brand stands for visionary mobility and vehicle concepts. It implements innovations and thereby contributes pioneering work within the enterprise. The brand’s drive is electric, its values sustainable and its design progressive. The BMW Museum is honouring the achievements of the brand that first set new standards with the BMW i3 and the BMW i8 and revolutionised individual mobility in large cities through a variety of mobility services. But it did not stop there: BMW i launched countless new, independent business areas within the enterprise, and has been aiming for new horizons and taking on new challenges since the beginning of 2018. Once again, the brand is carrying out pioneering work and is ready to realise new innovations.

Cover for  Europa und das Meer
Europe and the Sea
From a geographic perspective, Europe is a maritime continent. In terms of length of coastline relative to its overall size, Europe is the most sea-bound of all the five continents. Nevertheless, Central and Eastern Europe in particular can often seem very remote from the sea. At first glance, the sea for many nations only plays a role in the daily lives of those who live on the coast, or as a holiday destination. How fundamental the sea has been in shaping Europe’s development, and the role it continues to play right up to the present day, will be highlighted from June 2018 in a new special exhibition entitled Europe and the Sea. The exhibition investigates the sea’s significance as a space in which Europeans ruled and traded, as a bridge and border, a resource, and a place of imagination and memory. Using 13 distinct themes, each assigned a European seaport to serve as an example, the display encompasses a historical range spanning from antiquity through to the immediate present. This in turn demonstrates how mastery of the seas over the centuries has represented a significant component of European power politics. Today, the role of the sea as a bridge and border is once again of urgent relevance: millions of people fleeing war, terror, and poverty are setting off for Europe. However, other factors such as the use and exploitation of the oceans’ resources concern us more than ever, and will in the future play a significant role for the environment and global climate.

Shadows of Time
Giambologna, Michelangelo and the Medici Chapel
In executing his designs for the Medici Chapel in Florence between 1524 and 1534, Michelangelo created an unsurpassed highlight of Renaissance sculpture. Inparticular, the four monumental personifications of the Times of Day (Dawn, Dusk, Day and Night), with their daring nakedness and striking poses, had an immense influence on generations of artists. This is also reflected infour small-scale copies held in the Dresden Skulpturensammlung, which have so far received little attention. In this exhibition, investigatory evidence is carefully pieced together to demonstrate why the statuettes should be regarded as early works by the great Flemish sculptor Jean de Boulogne (1529-1608), known as Giambologna.

Almost Alive
Hyperrealistic Sculpture in Art
The desire to create as realistic a representation of man as possible is as old as humanity itself, extending far back to Antiquity. In the course of cultural history, artists have developed techniques for representing the human body in the most realistic fashion possible. Whereas illusionistic sculptures from earlier centuries are still symbolic figures connected with religious, artistic and historical themes, since the mid-20th century, the focus has shifted to man and individuality.

Gurlitt: Status Report
Nazi Art Theft and its Consequences
News that the Bavarian Public Prosecutor’s office had seized the art collection of Cornelius Gurlitt (1932–2014), caused an international sensation when it was made public in November 2013. The origin of the more than 1500 works that the reclusive son of the art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt (1895–1956) had inherited from his father raised suspicions: had they been looted by the Nazis before and during the Second World War? To investigate these suspicions, the German government provided the funding necessary to conduct further research, while Cornelius Gurlitt agreed to return any work identified as looted to their rightful owners. The exhibition "Gurlitt: Status Report" presents a selection of 250 works from a broad spectrum of the history of art that have been hidden from public view for decades. By addressing the provenance of each of the works on show, the exhibition also sheds light on the complex history of the individual objects.

Video Sculpture 1974-1995
"Before Projection: Video Sculpture 1974–1995" shines a spotlight on a body of work in the history of video art that has been largely overlooked since its inception. The exhibition explores the connections between our current moment and the point just before video art was transformed dramatically by the entry of large-scale cinematic installation into the gallery space. Before Projection, which debuted at the List Visual Arts Center at MIT last spring, presents a re-evaluation of monitor-based sculpture since the mid-1970s with a tightly focused survey of works that have rarely been seen in the last twenty years. “Before Projection charts a history of video art that is coextensive with some of the most important developments in sculpture in the late twentieth century,” said Mary Ceruti, Executive Director and Chief Curator of SculptureCenter. “By presenting canonized figures alongside artists who have rarely exhibited in the United States, this exhibition provides a new look at the historical context for artists working in sculpture, video, and installation and across media today. I am thrilled to bring this important history and many of its under-recognized exponents to audiences in New York City.”

Cover for  Claude Monet
Claude Monet
Claude Monet (1840–1926) stands like no other painter for the impressionist style, and as the French “Master of Light”, he was also a central pioneer of 20th-century painting. He painted by the seaside, at Normandy’s rugged coastal cliffs, and on the banks of the Seine, with the water surfaces in his pictures reflecting the bright, vivid colours of lush vegetation in his summer landscapes and the frozen fog’s mysterious grey and blue in his winter ones. Monet’s light and colours change on the canvas in accordance with nature’s constant transformation, as well as the diversity of atmospheric impressions that the painter gleaned from his motifs—and it was his urge to capture this diversity that moved him to paint many such motifs in series. The Albertina is devoting a large monographic exhibition to Claude Monet’s treatment of colour, which has seen little examination to date, as well as to the painter’s passionate fascination with the world of plants and water in the garden of his country home in Giverny. Three paintings from the museum’s own holdings as well as important loan works from international museums and private collections illuminate Monet’s development from realism to impressionism and onward to a mode of painting in which colours and light gradually separate from the subjects that reflect them, with the motif breaking free from mere observation of nature. Eventually, albeit only after Monet’s death, these late works would pave the way for abstract expressionism in painting.

Cover for  Klimt ist nicht das Ende
Beyond Klimt
New Horizons in Central Europe, 1914-1938
The end of WWI and the Austro-Hungarian Empire also meant the revival of major developments in the art world. Political and economic shifts led to artistic migrations, new ideas and perspectives and new artistic networks sprang up all over the place. Artists met up in arts centres and international associations and used magazines to communicate across political borders. They believed their artistic identity was more important than their nationality. This exhibition is your chance to take a look at the Central European territories in full transition through the eyes of Gustav Klimt, Josef Capek, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, László Moholy-Nagy and 75 other artists.
