INTERVENTION!

OLD + NEW ART IN THE BERLIN CATHEDRAL

The Berlin Cathedral, located in the center of the old district of Mitte, has been experiencing interventions for a number of years: interventions of contemporary art, radical interventions even into the sanctuary. This book recounts the more than one hundred-year-old pictorial program, initiated by German Emperor William II, of this tradition-steeped, always controversial church—as well as its encounter with contemporary artists. Artists such as Leiko Ikemura, Mwangi Hutter, Philipp von Matt, and many others become congenial commentators on a centuries-old history between art and the church. Art historians, theologians, and exhibition organizers write about this history and its discourse in texts, essays, and sermons.
