SACI MFA in Studio Art students visit Berlin


SACI MFA in Studio Art students and instructors in Berlin

SACI MFA in Studio Art students took a 4-day field trip this month to Berlin to experience the city’s invigorating international contemporary art scene. On their visit to Berlin, guided by MFA instructors, Karen Yurkovich and Daria Filardo, they went to various major museums, private galleries, local historical sites, and visited the studio of artist Alisa Margolis.

They visited the Hamburger Bahnhof, which is the largest state museum collection of contemporary art in Berlin. The collection is vast, from a large Joseph Beuys collection to arte povera and more contemporary pieces including works by Kiefer, Warhol, Baselitz, Nauman, and a 12-video piece called Manifesto by Julian Rosefeldt, starring Kate Blanchett.

Because of the long list of important places to visit, the students were given some flex time to choose what they were most interested in seeing. They took advantage of this by going to see the remains of the Berlin wall, Checkpoint Charlie, and to also visit the KW contemporary collections where both known and young artists work on projects and residencies. More locations included the Pergamon Museum, as well as the Neues Museum, which houses the famous head of Nefertiti and the gold from Troy discovered by Schliemann.
