      1. On the special case of Germany, this exhibition, curated by Stephanie Barron and Eckhart Gillen, considered art production in East and West Germany between the end of WWII and the fall of the Berlin Wall. The exhibition, billed as the first united, comprehensive look at post-war German art, opened at LACMA in Los Angeles in 2009 and traveled to Nürnberg and Berlin’s Deutsches Historisches Museum in autumn/winter 2009. Exhibited artists run the gamut of well-known post-War German artistic figures such as Martin Kippenberger, Gerhard Richter, Imi Knoebel, Anselm Kiefer, etc. but the show also included lesser-known figures and one or two much talked about ‘discoveries’ from the East German context, notably the sculptural assemblages from everyday objects by Hermann Glöckner. Installation views from various venues, an interactive digital timeline, and other documentation of the research leading up to the exhibition can be found online.
