Omer Fast: Talking is not always the solution
BERLIN, GERMANY • Martin-Gropius-Bau • 18 November 2016 - 12 March 2017
|Omer Fast (born 1972) creates narrations in his films that question the borders between one's own and media narratives and between current and historic events. His works address the friction between documentary and fiction. The Martin-Gropius-Bau is showing seven of his projects at his first large solo exhibition in Berlin. Shown are: CNN Concatenated from 2002, Looking Pretty for God (after G.W.) from 2008, 5000 Feet is the Best from 2011, Continuity from 2012, Everything That Rises Must Converge from 2013, Spring from 2016, as well as a new work called August from 2016. Shot in 3D, August is based on the life and work of renowned Cologne photographer August Sander (1876-1964).|

BERLIN, GERMANY • Deutsches Historisches Museum • 30 June - 31 December 2016
150 years ago, on 3 July 1866, Germany’s future was decided in the Battle of Königgrätz. The victory of the Prussian army over Austria established Prussian hegemony in the German states. The Deutsches Historisches Museum is devoting a temporary presentation within the Permanent Exhibition to this important event in German history with a number of objects from the museum’s own collections that can be seen for the first time.
The painting The Battle of Königgrätz on 3 July 1866 by Georg Bleibtreu from around 1869 forms the centrepiece of the exhibition. In addition, two laurel wreaths as well as such contemporary objects as a uniform worn at the Battle of Königgrätz, a diary, a field post letter and examples of the new Prussian weapons technology are shown. A media station that demonstrates the course of events on 3 July 1866 and a time beam on the floor help to reconstruct the political developments before and after the battle.
