Fans of the late great Rainer Werner Fassbinder will want to make a beeline for ‘Fassbinder — NOW’, an exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, before it closes this Sunday. Highlights include Barbara Baum’s sailor costumes from his lurid film Querelle, based on the Genet novel. There’s also a fascinating display of the director’s televised interviews, ephemera and personal effects from his estate. Works by other artists, including BUTT buddy Willem de Rooij, are well-placed to complement Fassbinder’s oeuvre and underline his profound influence outside the the world of filmmaking.

Fassbinder — Now runs until Sunday, 23 August 2015, and is open from Wednesday at Martin-Gropius-Bau, Niederkirchnerstraße 7, 10963 in Berlin.
