The newly opened exhibition Escape into Art? is dedicated to the Brücke painters during the Nazi era and their public perception after the end of the Nazi era. Many of them are seen as artists ostracized by Nazi cultural policy, who had chosen an "inner emigration". The exhibition at the Brücke-Museum examines the extent to which artists such as Erich Heckel, Emil Nolde, and Max Pechstein retreated after they had tried in vain to gain recognition from the National Socialists, and how resistant ideas were only subsequently interpreted into their works. Fri to Mon, 11 am - 5 pm, admission: 8 / 5 €

Museum in the Kulturbrauerei invites you to a neighbourhood walk on Easter Monday. During the division of East Berlin, Oderberger Straße in Prenzlauer Berg was a cul-de-sac in former East Berlin at the end of which a part of the Berlin Wall stood. Due to a viewing platform on the other side of the Wall, people looked from West Berlin into the street as if it were a "shop window to the East". During your walk you will hear stories about everyday life in this special place, about escape tunnels or about secret meeting places of the East Berlin bohemians who were spied on by the Stasi. Meeting point is at the Museum in the Kulturbrauerei. Mon, 11–12.30 am, in German, admission free
