The exhibition focuses on the creation of the “legend of Van Gogh” around 1900 as well as his significance to modern art in Germany. It unites more than 120 paintings and works on paper. At the heart of the exhibition are 50 key works by Vincent van Gogh from all phases of his artistic work. It is the most comprehensive presentation in Germany to include works by the painter for nearly 20 years.
A museum of the present must always be a different one. In a time of constant change and the attending sense of powerlessness, the exhibition Museum seeks to open up and occupy new spaces. Rather than critically questioning the institution, the focus is on exploring its possibilities. Artists: Michael Asher, Jo Baer, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, Marcel Broodthaers, A.K.
