Sundays I find pretty hard to pass in Hamburg with everything shut you sometimes struggle for something entertaining or different to do other then stay at home and hang out
After having to cancel our walk to Blankenese because of the amount of rain we decided to see an exhibition that is here in Hamburg called American beauties
With works from David Hockney and Larry Clark
And a series by Nan Goldin for James King in the big apple- This exhibition is definitely worth getting out and seeing.
But even though American beauties is the main exhibition being advertised here the highlight for me was definitely the collection from-
Arnulf Rainer/Dieter Roth. mixing and separating. collaborative and individual works, 1968 - 2005.
The presentation includes photography, paintings, graphic art, experimental collaborative works, videos and publications created jointly by Arnulf Rainer and Dieter Roth between 1972 and 1979, most of them never shown in public before, as well as works from 1968 up until 2005.
I found their Photography particularly entertaining :-)
After wandering around you can visit the Galleries bookstore-this place is just as entertaining and as beautiful as the galley itself with so many large coffee books on design and photography your going to wish you had thousands to spend in here.
A great way to spend a rainy Hamburg afternoon and it only costs 5 euros for students.
The Deichtorhalle is really worth a visit, and be sure to visit both halls. One is photography, the other is contemporary art, and it is always worth checking out, even if you don't really know excactly who the artist is. An extra bonus is the restaurant, which serves tasty and filling dishes - the food is really good, and the price is OK, considering the quality of the food. The tables at the window overlook the plaza between the halls and is good for people-watching.
