Sigmar Polke

May 30, 2017

We had the chance to visit the exhibition “Sigmar Polke – The Editions“ at me Collectors Room in Berlin recently. Polke, one of the most important contemporary German artists, experimented with a wide range of styles, subject matters and materials. In periods he concentrated on photography, then returning to paint, where he produced abstract works created by chance through chemical reactions between paint and other products. In the last 20 years of his life, he produced paintings focused on historical events and perceptions of them. In this exhibition in the me Collectors Room around 200 works, editions, are on show.

The me Collectors Room in Auguststrasse, Mitte, Berlin is “a platform for international private art collections to present themselves in Berlin. Commanding 1300 square metres of exhibition space, the Olbricht Collection, which features works from the Renaissance up to the present day, has had its permanent home here since May 2010”. The me Collectors Room often share the space with other international collectors and collections in special exhibitions or group shows.

The Editions runs until August 27th 2017.
