Find out about Museum Brandhorst’s highly important and fast growing collection of contemporary art.
Museum Brandhorst opened its doors in Munich in May 2009 and since then its collection has expanded from 700 to more than 1,200 works, establishing itself as one of Germany’s leading museums of contemporary art. Profiling the collection in all its breadth, this book touches on major art movements from the early 1950s to the present day. Highlights from the original collection, including pieces by Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Sigmar Polke, Keith Haring, and Ed Ruscha are considered alongside works by Seth Price, Wolfgang Tillmans, Charline von Heyl, and Laura Owens, among others. The book places the core works of the 1960s, 70s, and 80s in dialogue with acquisitions from recent decades.
