On a tour through all floors of the building you can explore the architecture and get to know the highlights of the collection: from Andy Warhol and Cy Twombly to Keith Haring and Albert Oehlen to Louise Lawler and Charline von Heyl.

Themed Tour I 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. This 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.

Themed Tour I The Dark Side of Pop Art

The Pop art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. At the same time, their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with surfaces. The tour shows how Pop art could be a phenomenon of both mass culture and subculture, and how its strategies still influences artists to this day.

Themed Tour I Painting Is Dead. Long Live Painting!

The death of painting has been declared at regular intervals ever since the invention of photography, its significance deemed obsolete. Based on selected works from the 1960s to the present day, this tour shows how painting as a medium has not merely defended its position in art, but how it also picks up on and reflects changes in image culture, from photography to television through to social media and the internet.

Themed Tour I Cy Twombly

With more than 170 pieces, the inventory of works by the American artist Cy Twombly in the Brandhorst Collection is unique worldwide. The tour provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in the incomparable work of the artist and to gain an insight into his multifaceted oeuvre in the media of painting, sculpture, and drawing. Highlights such as the Rose Gallery or the monumental ‘Lepanto’ cycle (2001) are naturally included in the tour, which also examines Twombly’s lyrical combination of image and text.

Thomas Eggerer in Conversation with Florian Pumhösl

Since the 1990s the artist Thomas Eggerer, who was born in Munich and lives in New York, has created subjects in his figurative paintings that are dedicated to the individual in the field of tension between community and isolation, as well as between the general public and individuality. The irony of his depictions of everyday scenes and gestures direct the gaze to their philosophical quality. In

Jana Euler in Conversation with Monika Bayer-Wermuth

A scared white shark, a portrait of Ed Sheeran, or a female depiction of Christ: Jana Euler’s striking motifs are always only the entry to a larger debate about painting. For the last decade the Friedberg-born artist has used styles and expressive forms of painting eclectically in order to question the medium using its own means. In the process she opens the discourse on socially relevant issues
