PROVOCATION ART GALLERY BERLIN
The Provocation Art Gallery Berlin is showing the Contemporary art of Thomas Dellert
PROVOCATION ART GALLERY
is a new showroom in the cultural and historical heart of Berlin;
located at Taubenstrasse 20 in Gendarmenmarkt, centre-Mitte
The venue is only a few steps away from das Konzerthaus, der Deutscher Dom, Borchardt Restaurant, Lutter & Wegner Restaurant, Newton Bar, Hilton Hotel & the exclusive Hotel du Rome.
The gallery specializes in art dealing with the history of the 20th century
using a contemporary artform.
All art is done by Swedish artist Thomas Dellert-Dellacroix
And the provocation lies within the attempt to come closer to the truth dealing with historical events like the SHOAH - Holocaust and art dealing with totalitarian regimes like the U.S.S.R. and N.S.D.A.P.
And also the Chinese Culture Revolution and the brutal years of Mao.
Strong art that can feel as a provocation to some visitors and a relief to others.
We have had many visitors phrasing us for our courage to show and exhibit art dealing with in many cases topics that still are not usually dealt with within art.
On one hand educational art on the other hand contemporary in its media.
Video. Photography and photo montage, hand printed silk screen, painting on canvas
and installations with objects.
Many of the artworks on exhibit are depicting places and events that took place just a few hundred meters from the gallery. Within a few steps of walking from the gallery space showing Berlin History in contemporary art you will find such historical places as Hausvogteiplatz the Square where Jews were rounded up for transportation to concentration camps and extermination camps. Close to the gallery you will find the place where Joseph Goebbels orchestrated the Book Burnings in 1933 and there is still the empty library there to look down into. And also within minutes walk from the gallery you will finds what once was the Fuhrer Bunker where Hitler and his wife Eva eventually took their lives in 1945. Today you find the most impressive and important artistic installation of all
The Holocaust Memorial of Berlin. Ironically built on top of what used to be the part of the bunker that contained the home of Propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and his family.
2014 saw the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which is reflected in several artworks as well as a short art movie titled Wall Walk, filmed in january 1990 by Thomas Dellert , walking along the many miles long Berlin Wall that nowadays is totally gone.
A historical document indeed.
Today 2019 we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.

Our gallery also takes pride in showing works depicting the reality and the poetry of the Great War of 1914-1918.
The so-called "War to End all Wars" which took place exactly 100 years ago.
Another main exhibit we have exhibited is Stunde Null Ground Zero. An exhibition of over 200 works depicting the fall of Berlin and the end of Nazi rule in 1945.
It also happened to take place at the same time as the commemoration of the 70th year milestone of the end of World War Two.
Other main topics in the gallery is to highlight the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and the dropping of the first atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
We also have had an exhibition based on the first and last journey of MRS TITANIC

and photo based art like Lightboxes all telling the story of the tragedy.
On the lighter side of history the gallery also highlights the lives of Marilyn Monroe, David Bowie, Princess Diana, Muhammad Ali and Jimi Hendrix.
