The Swedish photography museum Fotografiska opened its Berlin branch this month occupying 5,500 square meters within the renowned Tacheles building on Oranienburger Straße in Mitte.
Fotografiska Berlin aims to exhibit works by the world’s best photographers, both emerging and established, through outstanding photo exhibitions and a diverse cultural program. Fotografiska Berlin represents the fourth branch of the photography museum, joining the museums in Stockholm, New York, and Tallinn.
The museum opened with three inaugural exhibitions: Candace Breitz’s Whiteface, Juliana Huxtable’s -Ussyphilia, and the group show NUDE.
Now on view until 21 January 2023, ‘NUDE’ brings together the captivating works of 30 female-identifying artists hailing from 20 diverse nations.
Curated by Johan Vikner and Thomas Schäfer ‘NUDE’ dives deep into our long-lasting obsession with naked bodies. With over 200 artworks on display, this exhibition offers a global snapshot of what the human body means, how it’s used, and what it says about today’s world. It’s all about redefining how we represent bodies, starting a revolution that’s all about celebrating our differences, smashing the status quo, and giving artists and audiences a boost of empowerment.
