William Kentridge at Hamburger Bahnhof
One of the most amazing artists adn draftsman. His animations are incredible! I recently saw an exhibition of his at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin. One of which was part of an exhibition called 'Schmerz' ie pain this piece by Kentridge was called 'The History of the main complaint'
His animations are made with a single piece of paper,unlike all other hand drawn animations. So you can see the drawing being rubbed out and made over again. They are very beautiful.
Also there was an exhibition on his work for a series of animations of 'Journey to the Moon'.

The Hamburger Bahnhof is also well worth a visit. It is the old disued station of Berlin turned into a gigantic gallery. All 20th century art and beyond from Twombly to Beuys set in an immense, architectural space.
