Opening today, Neue Nationalgalerie presents the work of Hiroshi Sugimoto (Season 3) in what constitutes the Art21 artist’s most comprehensive retrospective exhibition in German-speaking countries. Berlin is the third stop for this traveling exhibition, which also goes to.Düsseldorf, Salzburg (Austria), and Luzern (Switzerland).

The exhibition consists of more than seventy photographs and a single sculpture. Sugimoto is planning an entirely different presentation of his work for Neue Nationalgalerie that will highlight relations to the Berlin collections, as well as the architecture of the Mies van der Rohe building. The exhibition is on view through October 5, 2008.
