What Visitors Say About Kunsthalle Mannheim
The Hanna Nagel exhibition at the Kunsthalle Mannheim stays with you for many days. Her drawings are dealing with so many topics that I did not think were debatable 100 years ago. Her clean strokes and humourous approach make even the darkest issues accessible. The building itself is awesome and the Kunsthalle has a huge collection of fine art. Even a James Turrell corridor. You can spend at least two hours there. Maybe more.
