“Open House. Open House Days” – Hamburger Bahnhof with free admission + program | 16.06.-18.06.2023

Editors’ Choice

For three days, Friday, 6/16, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday, 6/17, and Sunday, 6/18, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Hamburger Bahnhof celebrates the launch of the three new collection presentations with free admission to all exhibitions and programs. In addition, the summer music series “Berlin Beats” kicks off on Friday, 6/16, 7pm with a DJ set by Ellen Allien in the museum’s garden; Saturday, 6/17, and Sunday, 6/18, will feature artist talks with Eva Fàbregas, Zineb Sedira, and Selma Selman, among others, as well as behind-the-scenes tours of the museum and all exhibitions. The entire museum opens up to the public: the inner courtyard becomes an open-air stage and art picnic area, visitors dance the tango in the historic hall, build a giant sculpture, collect sounds for the Hamburger Bahnhof soundtrack, or use the walls of the Rieckhallen as a pop-up drawing studio.

With the admission-free weekend “Open House. Open House.” days, the museum also celebrates the permanent preservation of the site through the purchase of the Rieckhallen by the state of Berlin and of the historic building by the federal government in November 2022. The building complex and the gardens are now listed and permanently accessible to the Berlin population as a public place.

Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, directors of Hamburger Bahnhof: “With the open days, Hamburger Bahnhof is thanking the public for the purchase of the buildings by the public sector. We are sending a clear signal that Hamburger Bahnhof is open to everyone. The museum is intended to be a central meeting place in the heart of Berlin, where art is placed at the center of real life. We invite the public to rediscover the house and, together with our team, to rethink the future of the museum and the entire neighborhood.”“.

Beginning Friday, June 16, Hamburger Bahnhof will present its renewed vision of a contemporary collection museum with three interlocking program lines that will be on view until further notice: “National Gallery: A Collection for the 21st Century. Century” shows artistic practices in Berlin from the threshold of the opening of the Berlin Wall to the present day; “Forum Hamburger Bahnhof” is a freely accessible space in the museum that allows visitors to experience the history of the site and the institution as well as current issues; and “Infinite Exhibition” presents the evolved collection of site-specific artworks in and around the building with Judith Hopf’s newly commissioned work in a tour. In addition, special exhibitions by Zineb Sedira (through July 30, 2023), Christina Quarles (through Sept. 17, 2023), and Fred Sandback (through Sept. 17, 2023) are free to visit.

On Saturday, June 17, and Sunday, June 18, an extensive program complements the admission-free visit to the exhibition: There will be exhibition tours in German or English every hour on the hour; “Open House” tours will start every half hour and offer a look behind the scenes: Backstage tours show the director’s offices and the depot; architectural tours explore the building and the restoration studio opens its doors. Art mediators invite you to spontaneous dialogues and short tours in various languages. In addition, there will be a large book sale by the National Museums in Berlin and the Walther König bookstore, as well as film screenings by Ellen Allien and Stini Roehrs and Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Khimei. The Open House is made possible by the Volkswagen Group, Hamburger Bahnhof’s long-time partner.
