Location: Rooms 39 and 40, first floor

To mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany are paying tribute to the city of Berlin and its inhabitants with a selection of 18 masterpieces from the Permanent Collections (some of them not normally on display) of which the key theme is this great city, revealing the flourishing artistic scene that existed there in the first third of the 20th century. At that period and due to its lively cultural life and free spirit, the German capital attracted artists such as George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Otto Dix, Christian Schad and Max Beckmann, making Berlin a meeting point for the European avant-gardes.

In conjunction with this display, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany has organised a programme of related activities at the Goethe Institut, including lectures and film showings.
