More kunst

Venue: Kunsthalle, Fischmarkt, and Deichtorhallen, Hamburg

Lens: Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4

Music: Johannes Brahms – Hungarian Dance No. 5 (

As promised in my previous post from Hamburg, I decided to give you a pure art experience from the exhibitions I visited there. Obviously the photos here won’t represent anything original from me, they are more of a random collection of pieces I enjoyed seeing in the three main kunst (= art) exhibitions I visited in Hamburg: the main Kunsthalle with quite famous classic and modern art, the small art festival in the Fischmarkt which offered various art pieces for sale, and the contemporary art exhibition in the Deichtorhallen. I won’t spend much time explaining the paintings, in hope to make you search for them online or visit the actual exhibitions offline. Hope you enjoy the virtual tour and the new type of photo-topic here, and as usual feel free to comment on your favorite piece of art below.

Starting from the start: the lobby of the Kunsthalle, where four sculptures of monkeys behave like people and appreciate art – this one is clearly impressed by the artwork on the ceiling.
First came the “Old Masters” collection before moving to the 19th century and modern art.
“Madonna” by Edvard Munch, famous for the screaming guy.
A German classic: “The Wanderer before the Sea of Fog” by Friedrich.
Salvador Dali with his unmistakable style.
Moving from the priceless art in the museum to pieces with actual price tags in the Fischmarkt: close to the entrance there was a stand with a wide variety of ostrich paintings that I found quite cute.
Naturally there were many colorful and joyful paintings for sale.
Simple drawings can also be very nice.
Some larger scale heart-art with real rope attached to the painting.
A gothic-looking visitor checking out some paintings at the Fischmarkt.
And now back to museum-worthy and weird art: the contemporary exhibition in the Deichtorhallen, where also the photo at the very top of this post is made.
A collage of black and white photos of clothes…cool, right?
A minimalist take on a Japanese pole-dancer.
Abstract sculptures curated to go along with the abstract paintings behind.
A sentence on the blackboard and a candle – contemporary art has no boundaries.
Another interesting curator choice of a metal “sculture” put on the side of a black and red rectangle.
What better message to end this post with, I think there is plenty of hope for art in all its forms.

  1. I’m not a big fan of modern art, but I really like the very first shot, the one before the post. To me, it appears to be a photo you took of people around that piece of art (and if so, very nicely done!), but I’m aware it could all be one big piece of art. Please put my wondering to rest and tell me which it is. πŸ™‚
