BERLIN DAIMLER COLLECTION AND POTSDAMER PLATZ


Potsdamer Platz in Berlin is a modern area with some of the leading names in contemporary and modern art in public spaces. 

The Daimler Art Collection is over 2000 rotating works. At the time we saw the exhibition of Minimalist German artists from the sixties. Serious butt-kicking works. 

The Platz itself is slick, surrounded by sky-scrapers and includes the Sony Centre...and the usual shops. Some highlights...
