9 November - 31 July 2011. This exhibition features 11 sculptures from the high modernist period which only came to light during an archaeological dig in 2010. Believed to have been removed from the city's museums as part of the nazi 'Degenerate Art' campaign in the 1930s, the works had been missing for decades.

While excavating the Rotes Rathus in Berlin's historic centre in 2010, archaeologists came across the sculptures which until then were thought to have been lost forever. The exhibition includes the work of Otto Baum, Otto Freundlich, Karl Knappe, Marg Moll, Emy Roeder, Edwin Scharff, Gustav Heinrich Wolff, Naum Slutzky.

Mon-Fri 09.00-16.00. Sun-Wed 10.00-18.00. Thurs-Sat 10.00-20.00.
