Directions to Pinakothek der Moderne
The Pinakothek der Moderne (modern picure gallery) is one of the largest museums in the world and is known for the visual arts of the 20th and 21st centuries. Four independent institutions have been brought together under one roof built by the architect Stefan Braunfels:
The 'Sammlung Moderne Kunst of the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen', 'Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich', the Architekturmuseum der Technischen Universität and the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung.
The ground floor accommodates the exhibition area of the Architekturmuseum and the Graphische Sammlung. Both collections stage here temporary exhibitions of works from their holdings on a regular basis. The Sammlung Moderne Kunst on the first floor is noted for its major works by Classical Modernist painters.
Rooms dedicated to the artists Kirchner and Beckmann, as well as to the Neue Sachlichkeit art movement, are an important focus of the museum. Series of works by Warhol, Beuys, Judd, Flavin and Richter reflect developments in art after 1960. Contemporary art, such as video installations by Bill Viola or photographs by Gursky and Wall, for example, can also be seen. Recent works by young artists are regularly displayed in Room 21.
The design objects in The Neue Sammlung are displayed on the lower level. The large displays at the entrance reflect the different aspects covered by the collection. Rooms dedicated to automobile design and ‘Computer Culture’ reflect the emphasis placed on these areas. The Danner Rotunda on the 2nd floor is used for displays of contemporary jewellery.
