  • THE “VEREINIGUNG DER XI” AND THE BERLIN SECESSION
    The Beginning of Modernity around 1900

    In the year 1892, several progressive artists in Berlin joined to form the “Vereinigung der XI”. They turned away from the predominantly conservative taste in art during Emperor Wilhelm II's era and for the first time, they organised their own exhibitions in private art galleries. Only a few years later, in the course of 1898, the Berlin Secession emerged from the “Vereinigung der XI”. It developed as a counter movement to the academic exhibition business and was open to international art, as well. Similar to the Secessions in Munich and Vienna, it facilitated the onset of modernism.

    The exhibitions of the Berlin Secession encompassed a wide stylistic spectrum with works of naturalism, symbolism, Art Nouveau, Impressionism or Pointillism. The majority of motifs were taken from everyday life. Portraits, interiors and above all city- and landscapes gained fresh status.
    In 2014 the Berlinische Galerie received a total of 93 works from the collection of Dr. Jörg Thiede, focusing on art production in Berlin around 1900. As a consequence of this external donation, the museum collection relating to this important epoch in art history ‒ the beginning of modernism in Berlin ‒ has been enlarged significantly.
