Berlin's Hamburger Bahnhof

Ohhh how I wish Berlin's Hamburger Bahnhof - a museum of contemporary art in Berlin - would be in Melbourne. Unfortunately I only had one day in that gallery, but could have easily spent days in there just looking, observing and learning. How often do we get to see a Anselm Kiefer, Richard Long or Joseph Beuys in Melbourne - well not very often hence why I had the best time wandering about like in a dream. Joseph Beuys had an entire wing for me to drool over. I couldn't believe my luck as I came across all these artists I have admired for such a long time and to be able to see their work in front of me was a delight I will never forget.
Here are some snapshots I took whilst there. I wish I would have known one is allowed to take photos and I would have taken my other camera with me, but as it was I only had my friends digital camera with me.

Anselm Kiefer's "Lilith at the Red Sea"

Anselm Kiefer's "Volkszaehlung" (Census) - a monumental lead library

Richard Long "Berlin Circle"

I had never heard or seen an artwork by the Artists Anna and Bernhard Blume, but their photographs inspired and delighted me to no end. (Sorry forgot this title)

Artists Anna and Bernhard Blume "Im Wald" (In the forest)
