The sound piece “One Million Years (Past and Future 2–6)” is characteristic of the work of the Japanese conceptual artist On Kawara (1933– 2014). In works that often unfolded over decades, he repeatedly turned to time and space as the coordinates of human existence.

The cabinet exhibition “Gerd Richter 1961/62” is dedicated to the hitherto largely unexplored period in Gerhard Richter’s life: the two years from his flight from Dresden to the Federal Republic to the beginning of his official catalog of works with the first numbered pictures. (Venue: Albertinum)

The Indian ivory miniatures on display in the Sponsel Room at the Neues Grünes Gewölbe – in the immediate vicinity of Dinglinger’s “Throne of the Great Mogul Aurangzeb” – focus on the Mughal ruler Akbar II. (r. 1806-1837), a descendant of Aurangzeb and the Sikh ruler Ranjit Singh (r. 1797-1839), known as the “Lion of Punjab”, flanked by further figures and scenes.

As the craze for all things Chinese swept across Europe, the continent fell in love with porcelain. August the Strong was the only person to know the secret of how to make it. In 1710, he founded the first European porcelain manufactory in Meissen and made this exotic material into its unique calling card. Thirsting after its beauty, he collected thousands of pieces, the minority of which were the practical everyday items we associate with porcelain today. This explains how the Dresden Porzellansammlung is able to show precious vases, figurines and life-sized sculptures modelled after real animals owned by the Saxon king, alongside the finest dining services.

Walking through the Albertinum islike opening a museum-sized art history reference work and leafing through its pages. With a range extending from Romanticism to the present, the Albertinum is a place where painting meets sculpture, East meets West and today meets tomorrow.
