For the 200th anniversary of the The Battle of Leipzig, Deutsches Historisches Museum Unter den Linden “sheds light on various aspects of this important European conflict by means of the painting “Declaration of Allied Victory after the Battle of Leipzig” by Johann Peter Krafft”.

As well as raising questions regarding the events protagonists and their motivations “the exhibition examines the immediate and long-term ramifications for Germany and Europe, which can be summarized in the events surrounding the Congress of Vienna, the redrawing of the territorial map, the disappointed hopes for national unity and the Age of Restoration.”

Hilma af Klint A Pioneer of Abstraction

Hamburger Bahnhof, Invalidenstrasse

Hamburger Bahnhof hosts the first “comprehensive survey of the creative work of Swedish female artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944).” 200 pieces of the abstract artists work  are on display, including some never before exhibited.

On a fascinatingly Fortean side note we learn that Klint was a student of “theosophy and anthroposophy and gathered decisive impulses for her creative work as an artist from taking part in spiritualistic séances. Her oeuvre can be seen as an attempt to reach a deeper understanding of the world and human existence.”
