The Piranesi Principle

Marking the 300th Birthday of the Great Italian Master

The Kunstbibliothek is celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of the Italian architectural visionary Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778) with a special exhibition at the Kulturforum.

Address
Kunstbibliothek - Matthäikirchplatz

Matthäikirchplatz 8 10785  Berlin


The exhibition revolves around the Kunstbibliothek’s unique collection of drawings by Piranesi and the ornate books he published, as well as the rich collection of prints held by the Kupferstichkabinett. In collaboration with early career researchers from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Kunstbibliothek has conceived of the exhibition as a stage on which Piranesi appears in all his roles – as archaeologist, designer, scholar, set designer and visionary.

A special exhibition of the Kunstbibliothek – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin in cooperation with the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
