Garden of Earthly Delights

Gropius Bau, Berlin

26 Jul - 1 Dec 2019

Inspired by – and titled after – Hieronymus Bosch’s famous triptych, this exhibition groups artists whose work has made use of the garden as a metaphor if some kind, whether for paradise or ecological crisis. A version of the central panel of the Garden of Earthly Delights, created after Bosch, is joined by installations and videos by contemporary artists from Yayoi Kusama to Pipilotti Rist. Find out more from Gropius Bau’s website.
