t’s not just art that has the potential to be political – decisions around what to hang on the walls of museums and galleries prove similarly fertile ground for discussion and debate. For proof, look no further than this year’s European exhibition calendar: Bergen’s Kode Museum has opted to put Indigenous art centre stage; Kunstmuseum Basel highlights 100 years of Black figuration, and Paris’ Centre Pompidou gives a female pioneer of digital art some much-due attention.  

Germany this year celebrates the 250th anniversary of one of the German Romantic movement’s most prominent painters: Caspar David Friedrich, the creator of Wanderer above the Sea of Fog, a painting considered one of the most significant works of the Romantic era and a cultural icon. Friedrich’s hometown, Greifswald, is organising a programme of events throughout 2024, and his vast oeuvre will be on display at shows across Germany. The Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin, which houses one of the world’s largest collections of Friedrich’s paintings, is hosting its first comprehensive exhibition dedicated to the artist, titled Infinite Landscapes, while Hamburg’s Kunsthalle combines a thematic retrospective with works by contemporary artists. Art for a New Age reveals how topical Friedrich’s landscapes remain: at the time of their creation, they stood for a new relationship between humans and nature.
