Guided Tours

We regularly offer guided tours in German and English exploring our current exhibitions as well as the permanent collection. There you can learn more about the artworks, the artistic positions and the collection.

This Is Me, This Is You. The Eva Felten Photography Collection (90 min., max. 22 people)

The Eva Felten Photography Collection expands our view of the relationship between art, artists and society. Our viewing habits are challenged. What do we expect from a photograph? Do we believe in its objectivity? Do we reflect on the hierarchy inherent in the ultimately powerful act of “taking” photographs? Our survey tour puts these and other aspects of exhibition up for discussion. We will encounter works by prominent photographers such as Diane Arbus, Rineke Dijkstra, William Eggleston, Robert Frank, Evelyn Hofer, Roni Horn, Isaac Julien, Helen Levitt, Tracey Moffatt, Richard Prince, Bruce Wrighton and many others.

Cy Twombly – Painting, Sculpture, Drawing (90 min.)

With over 170 works, the number of pieces by the US artist Cy Twombly held by the Brandhorst Collection is unique worldwide. This tour offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the artist’s incomparable oeuvre and gain an overview of his multifaceted work in the media of painting, sculpture and drawing. Highlights such as the Rose Room and the monumental “Lepanto” cycle (2001) naturally form part of the tour, which also focuses on Twombly’s lyrical combination of image and text.

Museum Brandhorst. A building, its history and a unique space for Cy Twombly (90 min.)

Museum Brandhorst’s spectacular façade design is already a Munich landmark. The 36,000 colored ceramic rods are a distinctive feature of the architecture by Sauerbruch Hutton. Learn more about this building, which opened in 2009, and follow us into a unique space designed specifically for the twelve-part “Lepanto” cycle by US artist Cy Twombly (1928-2011) in 2001. You will learn how the young museum in Munich’s Kunstareal developed from the private art collection of Anette and Udo Brandhorst, as well as the references Twombly’s cycle has to Venice, for example. We look forward to your questions and are curious to know how you like this special museum.
