Museum Brandhorst. Selected Works

There are hardly any museums whose exhibition spaces are so perfectly matched to their works of art as the new Museum Brandhorst, which was built in the Kunstareal München, just a few steps away from the Pinakothek der Moderne. With the opening in May 2009, the high-caliber Brandhorst collection will set new accents, focusing on the one hand with artists such as Sigmar Polke, Joseph Beuys, Bruce Nauman, Mario Merz or Gerhard Richter on the art of the 20th century, on the other hand latest works by artists such as Damien Hirst, Robert Gober or Franz West.

Thanks to the special interior design, large-scale works such as Cy Twombly's Lepanto cycle or Andy Warhol's "The Last Supper" can be perfectly staged. From the outside, the museum building surprises with an appearance that seems to bring the façade into gentle vibration through thousands of colorfully glazed ceramic rods - a masterpiece by Berlin based architects Sauerbruch Hutton. Both aspects of the museum, from the great art to the fascinating and ecologically exemplary architecture are considered in detail in this volume.
