100 paintings, objects, and films from around 40 international contemporary artists invite us to intuitively approach art from an emotional perspective.

Anthony van Dyck – celebrated all over Europe for his portraits of the rulers, military commanders, artists, and beauties of his time. He captured his subjects with unparalleled vitality while also clearly denoting their status. Yet Van Dyck’s path to fame was not easy: his artistic beginnings were shaped by the famous Peter Paul Rubens: the equally admired and almost unassailable role model. Early histories testify to an intense engagement with Rubens, but also a tough struggle against his overpowering precedent. It was only in Italy, under the influence of Venetian painters, of Titian and Tintoretto, that Van Dyck found his own style. His portraits are marked by a sensitive observation of personality, which he represented with an equally fine, almost tactile rendering of fabrics, presented against a backdrop of stately décor. This exhibition presents the results of a research project over several years, exploring in particular the genesis of Van Dyck’s works and his workshop practice. The Alte Pinakothek’s own Van Dyck collection will be enriched by international loans, including drawings and oil sketches, allowing the visitor to follow the artist’s working process.

In July 2017, HRH Franz, Duke of Bavaria permanently donated his extraordinarily exquisite and diverse collection of ceramic objects dating from the 19th to the 21st century to Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum. Starting on 27 September 2019, Die Neue Sammlung will be honouring this generous gift with a major exhibition at the Pinakothek der Moderne.

After four decades of unbroken use as a museum and exhibition space, the Neue Pinakothek (rebuilt in its current form in the 1970s) has had to shut its doors for extensive renovation and modernization work due to last several years. During this period, selected major works of 19th century painting and sculpture from its collection will be on display in the Alte Pinakothek and at the Sammlung Schack. Selected highlights range from key works of Neoclassicism and Romanticism to the dawn of Modernism.

From a one-man business to a global enterprise: We reflect on 200 years of furniture design as illustrated by the history of family company Thonet. The groundbreaking achievements of the early period – new technologies, new design methods, new distribution and marketing channels – are juxtaposed to developments in the 20th and early 21st century. The firm founded in 1819 by Michael Thonet, a master cabinet-maker from Boppart, evolved down through the decades into one of the most important makers of bentwood furniture. Its “No. 14” continues to be one of the most popular chairs to this day and is still produced in large numbers. In the late 1920s, Thonet turned its attention to tubular steel furniture and teamed up with several Bauhaus designers who created chairs in what was then an innovative technology. As these tubular steel furniture items and the early bentwood furniture have long been part of the permanent exhibition at Die Neue Sammlung, the focus of the current presentation is on the pioneering creations by modern designers from Eddie Harlis via Verner Panton through to Norman Foster, Stefan Diez, Konstantin Grcic and – most recently – Sebastian Herkner. For the design of the exhibition we were […]

The concept of pendulums – be they suspended lamps or swinging metal ellipsoids – is a central feature of Ingo Maurer’s oeuvre that enables him to mobilize light using simple means. Since time immemorial people have been fascinated by the archaic shape of the egg and its perfect design. The swinging pendulum is one of nature’s physical phenomena that already provided orientation to the Ancient Egyptians. Watching a pendulum is one of the kinetic experiences with a positive impact on our well-being thanks to its regular and calming motion. It is this combination of the egg’s harmonious shape and the comforting quality of the “Pendulum” that informed Ingo Maurer’s pendulum – it offers us a new spatial experience whether it is in motion or not.

To mark the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, Die Neue Sammlung is having an exhibition that discusses the significance of this pioneering reform design college today. Simultaneously, Die Neue Sammlung is taking the opportunity to highlight its own historical links to Bauhaus. For the first time the museum will showcase historical objects from its own holdings in Munich. In cooperation with the artist Tilo Schulz an installation is realized interlocking 40 historical objects and responses to them by five contemporary artists. Invitations have been taken up by designer Ayzit Bostan, poet Barbara Köhler, architect Anupama Kundoo, composer Junya Oikawa, and artist Sofie Thorsen to explore one Bauhaus object and develop an independent work of their own.
