For the group exhibition, And Berlin Will Always Need You, Chiharu Shiota presents Beyond Memory (2019), a site-specific installation occupying the atrium of Gropius Bau. Drawing on the building's history as a museum of decorative arts and educational institution, the exhibition explores contemporary development in crafts and handmade artistic practices in Berlin.

On the inspiration behind her installation, Shiota writes:

The Installation 'Beyond Memory' connects the past of the Gropius Bau with the present. The white thread makes endless connections like neurons in the brain, transmitting information. Books and materials from the archives of Gropius Bau will be bind into this universe of thoughts and connections.

For more information and to book tickets, please visit the Gropius Bau's website.
