Berliner Luft

Thinkers and poets, architects and artists shape the appearance of a city, of a country and of a nation with their cultural production. Different concepts of a German identities are therefore inscribed in the city of Berlin.
In what respect can the Old National Gallery (1876) be seen as representative of the newly founded German Reich? How does the contemporary Berlin present itself as the new capital? How does Caspar David Friedrich handle national identity in comparison to a contemporary artistic position like that of Jonathan Meese?
