A visit to the Brandhorst Museum – Pre-Corona-Flashbacks.

Entrance ticket to a fascinating world

It feels like a whole decade, but I made a trip to the Brandhorst Museum in Munich in less than a year. A fascinating collection of modern art. I’ll make today’s article relatively simple for myself and simply quote the museum’s website:

The Museum Brandhorst inspires its audience from near and far not only by the largest holdings of works of Andy Warhol’s in Europe. The focus of the museum on works by Cy Twombly and the impressive display of his works are also unique in the world: the monumental “Lepanto Cycle” is permanently presented in a room that has been especially designed following the ideas of the artist. Pop Art and expressive painting are just a few of the numerous movements that can be found here, along with Arte Povera and Minimal Art.

“The museum impresses with outstanding holdings of artists of the neo-avant-garde of the 1960s and 70s such as Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter or Bruce Nauman and the postmodernism of such figures as Jeff Koons, Mike Kelley or Cady Noland. Bodies of work by international contemporary artists such as Kerstin Brätsch, Jacqueline Humphries, Mark Leckey or Wade Guyton open up new perspectives onto the present.

The Museum Brandhorst stands for an ambitious exhibition program that has been attracting international attention for years. Always in focus: the intense engagement with individual artists and their work. The changing collection displays and temporary exhibitions, as well as the comprehensive catalogues, set standards through their exceptional care and scholarship.

The Museum Brandhorst sees itself as a place of creativity and free thinking. It is in this understanding that the house has made it a central task to enable as many children and adolescents as possible to engage with contemporary art in front of originals. A diverse and constantly expanding range of educational services for children and families, school classes and nurseries encourage an inspiring encounter with contemporary topics from the perspective of the visual arts.”
