For its anniversary, Museum Brandhorst is presenting its collection anew.

Over the course of the anniversary weekend, the museum’s curators and conservators will present their favorite pieces, including important highlights, but also more recent contemporary positions. This part of the celebration will see our pi.lots, teenagers 14 years and older interested in art, to present selected works of art.
Meeting point at the information desk in the foyer.

Between identity politics and collective neurosis
Since the 1960s many artists have addressed questions of identity in their works, with reference to skin color, sexual orientation or social class. They celebrate these identities, but also make discrimination visible. The tour contrasts these analyses of identity politics with works that concentrate on the desire for optimization and the collective neuroses of our performance-oriented society.Go to the event
