Museum Brandhorst

Current information

Museum Brandhorst's presentations of its collection and temporary exhibitions are dedicated to central positions in art from the 1960s onward.
Currently on the upper floor of the museum, visitors can encounter the substantial body of work held in the Brandhorst Collection by the American artist Cy Twombly, which is unique in the world. Comprising paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs, the presentation "Cy Twombly: In the Studio" draws an arc from the early stages of his artistic practice in the 1950s to his late rose paintings, which he personally chose for the Museum.

On view until April 22, 2019, the ground level of the museum features “Alex Katz,” a retrospective overview of the renowned American painter. Drawing on the Museum Brandhorst’s own extensive holdings, along with loans from public and private collections, the exhibition offers an extensive presentation of Katz’s works from 1954 through 2017.

In addition, the museum’s lower level has been recently reinstalled with a thematic exhibition of works from the Brandhorst Collection – featuring Andy Warhol, Monika Baer, Damian Hirst, Mike Kelley, Sigmar Polke, Albert Oehlen, Laura Owens, and many others.

From 24th May 2019 we celebrate our big anniversary with the exhibition "Forever Young - 10 Jahre Museum Brandhorst". The exhibition will be on every level of the museum and will be accompanied by a rich program of events. On the opening weekend, from 25 to 26 May 2019, admission to the museum is free.
