Church for Sale
Works from the Haubrok Collection and the Nationalgalerie Collection

28.11.2021 to 18.09.2022
Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin

On its 25th anniversary, Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin shows important works from the Nationalgalerie Collection and the Haubrok Collection. A spacious architectural design was developed in the museum’s Historical Hall especially for the occasion.

The represented artists approach art as a political activity against ubiquitous violence and aggression, marginalisation and the lack of protection of common goods essential to life. In their works, the artists address the vulnerability of human existence in its social and cultural contexts and examine power structures in the private and public sphere.  

The Church for Sale exhibition takes its name from a series of works by Edgar Arceneaux from 2013 which shows billboards from the bankruptcy-threatened city of Detroit advertising the sale of church properties and, thus, the community-forming meeting rooms they provided. The exhibition brings together works of art that explore the tension between toughness and vulnerability in different social contexts.
