Reichstag…


Parliament’s collection in the Reichstag is absolutely mindblowing… Jenny Holzer, Anselm Keifer and more… Here are some examples of the work – the greatest of which is the building itself, as transformed by Norman Foster for the opening in the late 90s.

Standing solitary, this is an original piece of the old tunnel connecting the Reichstag with the buildings next door – there is a conspiracy theory (with quite a lot of weight) that Göring went through the tunnel to set fire to the building in 1933, blaming the Communists and leaving the way open for a Nazi political victory a couple of days later.
