The Feuerle Collection is a new private art museum in Berlin Kreuzberg dedicated to Désiré Feuerle’s collection which juxtaposes international contemporary artists with Imperial Chinese furniture and Southeast Asian sculptures.
Located in a former Second World War telecommunications bunker renovated by the British architect John Pawson, the museum encourages a conversation between different periods and cultures offering an alternative perception of ancient art and creates a new perspective on the works, leading viewers through a synesthetic experience.
The collection brings together international contemporary art, Imperial Chinese lacquer and stone furniture, Chinese wood and stone Scholar Furniture from the Han Dynasty to Qing Dynasty, from 200 BC to the 18th century, and Khmer sculptures from the 7th to the 13th century.
The visitor enters into a sophisticated and sensual world that puts these refined cultures and elegant pieces into a new light.
Désiré Feuerle, who comes from a contemporary art background, owned a gallery in the nineties in Cologne, Germany, where he pioneered juxtaposing ancient art with contemporary and modern art, as well as re-looking at antiques from a contemporary perspective.
