BERLIN / GERMANY
The Feuerle Collection juxtaposes international contemporary artists with Imperial Chinese furniture and ancient Southeast Asian art. It first opened its doors with a sold out preview week at the end of April 2016 that attracted international critical acclaim, and in summer 2016 hosted the 9th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art as one of the main venues, which attracted over 100,000 visitors.
Located in a former Second World War telecommunications bunker that has been renovated by the British architect John Pawson, the museum encourages a conversation between different periods and cultures, offering an alternative perception of ancient art and creates a new perspective on the pieces, adopting a synesthetic approach and a highly sophisticated light design.
The total museum space of 7.350m2 includes two main exhibition rooms on the ground floor and lower ground floor, as well as a space which can be divided from the main area, enabling The Feuerle Collection to house temporary exhibitions. On the lower ground there is also a Sound Room, a Lake Room and an Incense Room, all available for events, photo- and film shoots.
