all of for us on returns to the tate modern with what's been deemed an unmistakable exhibition one that highlights his delight in visitor participation and concern for the environment. and in our series underground europe we visit an eerie stop to rainy a lake in southern switzerland. dividend or the turning point that's the term that germans used to refer to the fall of the berlin wall in 1909 an event that mend the end of east germany and cleared the way for the country's reunification well for artists who had found a way to co-exist with the communist system and opened a vast new world of possibilities at the same time however it up ended everything about their creative motivation and their lives for 30 years on an exhibition in like 6 looks at the art that was produced during this turbulent period. doris siegler doesn't see herself as someone who can see into the future but what the
leipsic artist painted just a year before the fall of the wall did come to pass people peacefully demonstrating with candles crossing a border bridge as poor as nutty it was spring 1980 s. and i explain it to myself as a type of wish fantasy for change and also one of personal change. in this personally an awful this. is one of more than a 100 artists whose work documents the years are painful the collapse of the g.d.r. the full of the wall and reunification a few of the paintings do express euphoria but more commonly loss and even pain. it was a kind of amputation not from the g.d.r. of but from friends colleagues from your life the life in the west was totally different so we came from the war next of state support into the free market soon
after the fall of the war i went to frankfurt and that was like jumping into very cold water indeed codice was the exhibitions curator says that even today east german artist works value and their own role in the peaceful revolution is both politically and artistically undervalued as a scan swished it's important to remember and this was largely forgotten after 989 that in the eighty's it was a visual artist who made creative spaces in the studios in their workshops in their private gallery spaces were a group to course where it could a stamp a shit self a copy of incomes of most of the works here have never been on display in public before even experts in the field are amazed at what sunshine. is i don't know around 80 percent of the works here because they really did stay in the a tele a for. even though presumably reach out of a hole i did not expect that these dormant pieces of art would see the light of day
in my lifetime but today i realized that people just wanted to look to the future and didn't want to be reminded of the pain of the past it was a new type of person that was called for and somehow i just got left behind to the annoying mention to the 5. to look at the now interest in these pieces has been sparked again says he is after the fall of communism there's a treasure trove of art to rediscover. well yet another treasure trove at the tate modern in london where a son has once again occupied the famous turbine hall 16 years after the last time he did it while the major retrospective of his work includes a ton of lego bricks a long corridor of dense fog and even a huge wall of reindeer moss from finland sun has been billed as a new model of artist to challenges how we interact with the world and now his fans can see the full range of his work.
as a superstar. in a museum 2000000 people kind to see it but it still remained a poetic experience. is monster of florence and the elements in 2008 he created waterfalls in new york a magical natural spectacle in the midst of the metropolis. his biggest show to date has just opened at the tate modern what do we see in his own thoughts what's real what is perception and what is real about perception we are supposed to provide the answers ourselves. shafi when i look at it i create the story in this picture i look at the picture and then i project my feelings my dreams my ideas my thoughts onto the picture and
so it is sometimes a bit of work to go to the museum it's not like going to the supermarket and saying now i feel good we are here to question ourselves and to examine ourselves and to see ourselves within the context of the wider world to see. as many sources of inspiration the nature in iceland is one of the most important. reason how so for me and for me. the arctic united states extremely slow and very fragile parents are icelandic as a child i was often out and about in nature my father was an artist and as a painter he was out in nature in a conventional manner and as a little child i went along off and on he has plants can die by. he is still drawn to its day and many of his ideas originate here the. water and lights and installation that creates a rainbow visible and invisible there or not there at all
