Tentacle Spectacle by Yayoi Kusama
In Berlin, the long-awaited retrospective of Yayoi Kusama reopens. The exhibition in the Gropiusbau is a selfie paradise and at the same time shows a fearless art pioneer.
When the big, long-announced Kusama exhibition at Berlin’s Gropiusbau is finally allowed to reopen, it will greet its audience with a gigantic installation of bright pink dotted tentacles in the atrium.
The exhibition shows a fearless pioneer. “The very fact that she is herself in almost every photograph taken of her art,” Rosenthal notes. Immersion, the complete immersion in a work of art, is also among her earliest practices.
From Wednesday, May 19, the Gropiusbau is again accessible with appointment and negative corona test, as the incidence in Berlin has been stable below 100 for several days. You can find more information about the exhibition here.
