The Sculpture Garden

Adjacent to the Kunsthaus Dahlem is the Sculpture Garden, in which over twenty sculptural works by the artist Bernhard Heiliger demonstrate his unique and wide-ranging artistic style.

Born in 1915 in Stettin, Heiliger is one of the most important and influential postwar German sculptors. Together with artists such as Hans Uhlmann and Karl Hartung, he was responsible for developing the international reputation of postwar sculpture from West-Berlin.

Heiliger died on October 25th 1995 and left behind a rich oeuvre spanning over half a century. Some of his most known pieces are on view in the garden.
