The private tour will include discussion of the Wende Museum’s permanent collection as well as our newest exhibition The Medea Insurrection: Radical Women Artists Behind the Iron Curtain. Opening November 10, The Medea Insurrection was conceptualized and curated by Susanne Altmann for the Albertinum (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden). It has been adapted by the Wende Museum for its Culver City appearance. The tour will be led by the Wende’s Chief Curator and Director of Programming, Joes Segal.
Following the tour, guests will enjoy a hosted lunch in the garden.
The Wende Museum holds an unmatched collection of art and artifacts from Cold War-era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Named for the “Wende,” a German word meaning “turning point” or “change” that has come to describe the transformative period leading up to and following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the museum is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Wall this November. On view beginning November 9 is The Medea Insurrection: Radical Women Artists Behind the Iron Curtain. The exhibition has been organized in collaboration with the Albertinum (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden), and is part of Wunderbar Together: The Year of German-American Friendship 2018/19, an initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).
